(09/18/2012)
(Part 6 of Self Image) How are you special? God says you are special, because He gave you something that He never gave another part of His creation. God made you in His image. So, what is the image of God?

(09/17/2012)
(Part 5 of Self Image) A healthy self-image is "seeing yourself as God sees you...no more and no less." The truest thing about you is what God says about you. There is one overriding theme in the Bible: You are Special! Regardless of your feelings, this is true about you.

(09/14/2012)
(Part 4 of Self Image) One of the greatest problems today (in every culture) is the way men and women perceive themselves.

If you cannot accept yourself the way you are, then how can you trust someone else to accept you the way you are?

(09/13/2012)
(Part 3 of Self Image) Who are you? Who are you right in the depth of your being? That picture is the real picture of how you perceive yourself, and it's often that picture that will determine how you live your life out in relationships with others.

(09/12/2012)
