Erica Campbell Readies New Book To Make You More Spiritually Attractive
Erica Campbell wants to help others become more spiritually attractive.
With her new book, More Than Pretty: Do the Soul Work that Uncovers Your True Beauty, the Grammy Award-winning gospel music singer aims to do just that. In a recent interview with ESSENCE, the singer and first lady of California Worship Center church in Los Angeles, California, explained her motivation for releasing her upcoming book.
“I think there is greatness in all of us. Sometimes we have to do work to find it,” she said. “I’ve done my own work and hopefully More Than Pretty will help others do the same.”
Campbell believes when people learn to find their inner beauty, joy and fulfillment are sure to follow.
“Joy and fulfillment are within reach and possible, but it starts with YOU! And how You feel about YOU,” she said. “There’s so much more than what’s on the outside—so let’s find that inner beauty and let it shine!”
The book will not officially be released until September, but a description of Campbell’s latest project gives people a glimpse of what they can expect.
“So many young women struggle with issues of low self-esteem, depression, self-degradation, and other unhealthy habits that manifest on the outside what’s happening on the inside. And the rise of social media and the emphasis on beauty as validation for self-worth have only added fuel to the fire,” the description states. “But Erica Campbell—Grammy-winning gospel star, reality TV star, and nationally-syndicated radio host—believes that we need to redefine beauty. We need to start to see ourselves the way God sees us—beautiful and perfectly made. True beauty, Erica believes, is about embracing who God made you to be.
In More Than Pretty Cambell will share her own struggles while sharing practical ways for others to overcome theirs.
“…She turns the mirror around, reflecting God’s Word, His affirmations, and His design for every woman. This book explores issues of self-esteem, identity, and God’s design for love and intimacy,” the description states. “She is candid about her own struggles, sharing honestly about her battle to feel ‘good enough’ in an industry that fixates on outward appearances. Covering topics such as being honest about who we truly are, reflecting on what we have internalized about our appearances, uncovering and exposing the plan of the Enemy, and accepting God’s will for your life, Erica offers thoughtful, hard-won wisdom and encouragement to women from all walks of life, helping build confidence in and through the power of God.”
