Beauty is Skin Deep but Ugly Goes to the Bone

Women have been designed by God to be attracted to, admirers of, and creators of beauty!Yet, this God-given gift has been used as a device to discourage us and to hold us to an unattainable standard. In true cookie-cutter fashion, we are told we must look a certain way, wear a certain size, weigh a certain number, and act a certain way in order to capture the ever elusive butterfly of beauty.

The brittle shellac of beauty is indeed merely skin-deep and can mask the truth that ugly goes to the bone. Join Shelley Noonan as she examines how the world’s view of beauty is a cheap imitation of the real thing.

When knighthood was at its height a knight was considered to be the King’s man. A knight served the King loyally and lived by a very specific and detailed code. This code was called Chivalry and it was a set of rules which governed knight’s behavior and their interaction with others. Chivalry was based upon biblical principles such as loyalty, humility, charity, mercy and honor.
