The following is an excerpt from the forthcoming book,
“Scarred Like Him: Seeing the Beauty in the Life You Live” by Denise Ann Goosby.
“Everyone wants to be loved.
Everyone wants to be accepted.
Everyone wants to be desired.
But what happens when that longing alludes you? What happens when the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual scars of living mark you as different? Someone who others feel may not deserve love, acceptance, and desire?
What happens when you don’t fit society’s vision for what is beautiful—or your own?
Scarred Like Him: Seeing the Beauty in the Life You Live tells a story of how our outer and inner woundedness affects our identity, worth, and value in the eyes of others. And in the eyes of ourselves.”
