Do you know a woman or teen who feels ugly? Or unworthy? With media images everywhere telling our daughters, sisters and wives that they don??ª?t measure up it??ª?s no wonder that we are plagued by low self-esteem and record high numbers of plastic surgeries. Girls and women are suffering.
Jennifer Griffiths Manges is no stranger to self-loathing and deep personal challenge, and for the past two years she has been spreading a message of hope and self-reclamation with women and teens throughout the state of Utah. As a frequent speaker and author of ??ª?The Love Yourself Dare: One Woman??ª?s Journey from Self-Loathing to Self-Love??ª? she shares the message of gaining self-worth, redefining beauty, finding purpose in life and meeting challenges courageously. ??ª?There are many tools for retraining harmful beauty beliefs,??ª? says Jennifer. ??ª?Creating awareness of thought patterns is the first and most impactful way to start shifting self-image. Education in media tactics is also helpful. Resources in how to love yourself and see your true beauty are on the rise. Share these resources with those who are struggling. Most importantly, have patience with and validate the women and girls in your life.??ª?
Jennifer has garnered support from business owners in Utah and around the county to help spread the important message of Loving Yourself. Trainers, coaches, mentors, musicians, artist, practitioners, etc.??ª?have generously donated time, services and products to an online silent auction to help empower women and girls to Love Themselves. This is your opportunity to get products and services at a price YOU want to pay while simultaneously supporting a much needed message! The auction will run Monday, February 25 through Friday, March 1, 2013 at www.32auctions.com/iambeautiful.
Proceeds from the auction support Jennifer as she competes for Mrs. Utah America June 22, 2013 at Peery??ª?s Egyptian Theater in Ogden, Utah. To find out more about Jennifer or The Love Yourself Dare, visit www.theloveyourselfdare.com and
