If you are a black woman who struggles with low self esteem, self hate or negative body image, this is a book for you!
In Sapphires and Other Precious Jewels, Terri Mcfaddin works to build up the self-esteem of black women by comparing all the virtues and qualities that truly make a person beautiful to the beauty of rubies, sapphires, emeralds, diamonds, onyx and other precious gems. By using biblical references and scripture, Mcfaddin works to uplift black women through scripture and teach black women to love themselves because God loves them. The sapphire comes to represent the beauty and diversity of black women around the world. Terri Mcfaddin chose to focus on the sapphire because of the “sapphire stereotype,” which has been used to degrade black women for centuries. Although this book focuses on black women, all women can benefit from this books uplifting message. You learn to value yourself not for your looks, but for inner beauty because the true beauty that is within will reflect out. This book is inspiring and heartwarming.
