Mrs. Overton is back!

2 Timothy 1:7
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.
About 10,000 people a month Google the phrase, “Am I ugly?” In a deeply unsettling talk, Meaghan Ramsey from the Dove Self-Esteem Project walks viewers through the surprising impacts of low body and image confidence—from lower grade point averages to greater risk-taking with drugs and alcohol. And then shares the keys things all of us can to disrupt this reality.
Here are some additional resources from the Dove Self-Esteem Project specifically for parents: https://www.dove.com/us/en/dove-self-esteem-project/help-for-parents.html
