Lamenting My Prejudice Against Beautiful Women
We all face limits in time and energy, and every Christian woman must ask how much she is willing to spend getting ready in the morning. We should consider our attitude toward our facial features and bodies, and whether our pursuit of beauty is idolatrous and consuming. But intelligence can be an idol too, and I wonder if I have clung to it in order to be taken seriously in a male-oriented culture. After the ladyfest last month, I'm ready to learn how to correctly apply eyeliner—and also to read more Kierkegaard. Who says we can't do both?
Katelyn Beaty, managing editor of Christianity Today and co-founder of Her.meneutics, will be speaking at Q Focus: Women & Calling in New York next month.
