God Loves Ugly

Full Product Description

Publisher's Description

Whenever Christa Black looked in the mirror, she was waging a war with herself. Her hatred of her face and body drove her, as a young woman, into frantic over achievement, addiction, and an eating disorder that landed her in rehab.

A preacher's kid, she'd grown up imagining God as a 'thou shalt not' tyrant. It was only when she miraculously discovered God's unconditional love for her - physical imperfections, moral failings, and all - that she finally began to accept herself. As she tells her story, Christa shares the tools she uses to combat the self-rejection that harms so many people's lives.

In this raw testimony, Christa Black takes women on a step-by-step journey of faith and positive belief to reveal that if God loves ugly, then we can too.


"I wish I had this book when I was struggling with bulimia as a teenage girl. Thank you, Christa, for presenting your story with such raw vulnerability and honesty. You show that true beauty comes from what seems like the ugliest secrets. Freedom will be experienced by many as a result. And as the mom of three girls, I promise I will be referencing this book often.”
Natalie Grant
Award Winning Singer-Songwriter

“This book is for anyone who has ever wanted to be loved. It’s not just for people in despair or rehab; it’s a dose of loving truth for us all. I can attest to this awakening in Christa’s life…I’ve seen it up close, and it’s beautiful! This beauty-for-ashest story will never grow old.”
Christy Nockels
Singer-Songwriter / Part Of The 268 Generation

“If ever there was a book worth reading and a journey worth taking, it is this one. Christa has a remarkable way of putting her heart on paper. God Loves Ugly will encourage you to search your own life and rediscover truth, beauty, and how love changes everything. Whether you’re 9 or 109, the words in these pages will teach you to see what new eyes.”

“God Loves Ugly is a song that changed my life and self-esteem, and now God Loves Ugly is a book that inspired my heart.”
Jordin Sparks

“After reading God Loves Ugly, one word kept echoing through my mind and heart: compassion. Christa courageously peels back the layers of fear and defense mechanisms to reveal a heart created to receive love ad live a life of compassion. Battling the lies that try to guide our beliefs is my story and the story of countless others. Christa shares keys to freedom from the lies and like a true friend, leads you down the path to total joy and deliverance. You won’t be disappointed!”
Kim Walker-Smith

“Intelligent, creative, humble, generous, passionate, raw, and honest…these are some of the words that spring to mind while reading this wonderful piece of heartfelt literature by my friend Christa Black. As she delves into subject matter that is often danced around, she has the grace to give each of us readers real-life stories, with real-life answers in a way that empowers and brings light rather than shame. I am confident that this book will be life changing and life saving for so many, and my heart is ever grateful for the courage and tenacity of our beautiful Christa. Be inspired as you read.”
