Beauty Not Beheld
her featured book
The promises of self-love culture usually disappoint. Paige's newest book Beauty Not Beheld explores how self-love culture distorts the central message of the gospel and how the biblical alternative can deliver fully on its promises.
On Beauty + Identity
For the one who...
has found that the promises of self-love disappoint,
doubts the Scriptures’ relevance to the problems she faces everyday, or
struggles to understand how the gospel could truly be a remedy for her insecurities,
...this book is for her.
If you serve women who resonate with these pain points, we highly recommend Paige to speak into these topics and shine a new light on timeless truths in a way that exposes the core values of culture today in light of Scripture.
Inside the Book
The Problem with Self-Care
"We have turned the gospel into a self-esteem project instead of an atonement project. And we have done this by convincing ourselves that our deepest problem as a human being is a lack of self-love, self-confidence, self-appreciation, self-care, self-this, and self-that."

Meet Paige McBride

Behind the Book
Growing up as a competitive dancer, I was no stranger to beautiful girls and perfect bodies, not to add the hours of staring at them next to mine in the mirror every night. Susceptible to the traps of pride, I began to buy the lie that immodesty and sexualizing myself were worth feeling empowered and noticed.
After many years reflecting on some of my mistakes and victories, Beauty Not Beheld is a careful trek through the Scriptures that has allowed me to lay out more systematically the core truths that have shaped my identity and body-image and set me free from the insecurity and disappointment of the world’s remedies.
