LDS singer Monica Moore Smith just released a music video “Who You Are – I Am a Child of God.” She spent months coordinating with women of all different backgrounds. You may recognize Al Fox Carraway, Jenn Blossil, Bri Ray, Maddie Wilson, and others. She asked them if they would be brave enough to appear on camera with absolutely no makeup. To her amazement, they said yes!
Here is the description of the music video from YouTube:
The world tells you you’re not successful enough, beautiful enough, smart enough, thin enough, rich enough. Sometimes we try to build up others by telling women they ARE all those things. But, the truth is, sometimes we really aren’t! Sometimes we fail, look ugly, can’t figure things out, gain weight, and are flat broke. My message to you is that your true self worth doesn’t come from being pretty, smart, thin, rich, or anything else. Your worth comes directly from God. Nothing you do (or don’t do) changes your eternal, infinite worth. You are loved, valued, and needed!
Inspired by Colbie Caillat’s song “Try” and, obviously, by Jessie J’s “Who You Are”—as well as all the other amazing female power anthems out there—I wanted to add my voice to tell you that your worth is inherent because you are a daughter (or son!) of God. No qualifiers. No conditions. Full stop.
