Our culture is driven by a concept of beauty that negatively impacts adolescent girls. The Scriptures are full of assurances regarding our identity in Christ, inherent worth to the Creator, and the secrets to tapping into the source of true and lasting beauty, yet girls and young women continue to struggle with their focus on outer beauty. In Graffiti: Learning to See the Art in Ourselves, Erin Davis applies the language of God's Word on identity, beauty, and worth to the life of a contemporary young woman. In fact, women who have never adequately dealt with this issue will find themselves reviewing their youth, and redirecting their spiritual eyes. The Leader's Guide provides small group leaders with ideas for retreat activities and going deeper.

Hello, friend. I am thrilled that you have decided to address the issues of identity and beauty with the young women within your sphere of influence. I can only assume that you have taken this step as a direct result of the damage you’ve seen firsthand in their lives.

Today’s young women are indeed struggling to embrace their God-given beauty and worth, and the struggle often produces disastrous results. You can see this in the lives of the young women around you, but the individuals you encounter are part of an entire generation of girls who are confused about their beauty. Documented research has clearly shown the need to address these topics.

According to a recent study, over half of the females between the ages of 18 and 25 would prefer to be run over by a truck than to be fat. Two-thirds of women in that age group would choose to be mean or stupid rather than fat.¹

The number one wish of girls 11–17 is to lose weight.²

91 percent of women recently surveyed on a college campus had attempted to control their weight through dieting, and 22 percent dieted often or always.

Even worse …

40 percent of newly identified cases of anorexia are in girls ages 15–19.

There has been a rise in incidence of anorexia in 15-to 19-year-olds every year since 1930.³

There is a need for us to address the issues of identity and beauty of this generation. You are taking an important step in facilitating a Graffiti event. It is my prayer that God will use this time to open up the lines of communication between you and your girls and that they will begin to embrace their God-given value as a result of the truth they are exposed to during this time.

Since God’s Word is rich with assurances of His love
