True Beauty is the middle and high school girls (some are still in elementary school) discipleship program of Oak Grove Baptist Church. The purpose of True Beauty is to teach girls what the Bible says about being a lady–what God intended womanhood to be–how to build biblical convictions in life, and above all else pour another layer of Gospel foundation in their lives. I pray one day each of them surrenders their hearts to God’s magnificent love and plan for their lives, and sees that a new heart given only by the Lord at salvation is the way to true and lasting beauty.
I teach topical lessons entirely built on the foundation of God’s Word on Wednesday nights. During the summer I continue to teach on Wednesday nights and on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to Noon when the older girls come to my house. During that time we have a more in-depth lesson and then get more hands-on through lessons on how to cook, clean, sew and be doers of the Word and not hearers only.

“To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle. She is gracious. She is godly and she is giving… You and I, if we are women, have the gift of femininity. Very often it is obscured, just as the image of God is obscured in all of us… The more womanly we are, the more manly men will be, and the more God is glorified. As I say to you women, ‘Be women. Be only women. Be real women in obedience to God.'” -Elisabeth Elliot
