#Beauty Bracelet ™
As seen on QVC and in the funny Christmas movie for the family, “The Farmer and The Belle: Saving Santaland,” our #Beauty Bracelet™ is designed with a beautiful chain that holds five charms (with ten inscriptions) that affirm the mind, body, and soul on what God defines as true beauty. The fifth charm is a heart that adjusts to fall into the palm of your hand allowing you to hold onto God’s truth and love of Jesus.That charm reads “Open My Heart” with the passage to real love when you meditate upon “Dear Jesus, help me grasp how wide, long, high, and deep is your love for me.”
Our #Beauty Bracelet™ is Inspired by a Tiffany style chain and Alex and Ani charms manufactured by Elite Group NY (Michael Kors and Catherine Zeta Jones Jewelry manufacturer) with a vintage brush style and an adjustable chain in two sizes to fit any size wrist for adults or children.

PRODUCTION STILL OF OUR #BEAUTY BRACELET ™, AS SEEN IN, “THE FARMER AND THE BELLE: SAVING SANTALAND.”
“What a blessing it is to be able to share this with my 9 year old daughter Willow. She is growing up in such a tricky society for young women right now and I am so glad she has it as a guide to remind her that her true beauty is within.”
-Alicia Minshew, mother, producer, Emmy nominated actress, Kendall Hart in, “All My Children.”
What is Beauty?
Girls live with a lie written on their hearts:
“If I’m beautiful by culture’s definition, then I have value and people will love me.”
Psychologists have identified that this lie has been wounding the woman’s soul reaching epic proportions today because of the pervasive influence of the media in modernized society. Movies, television, magazines, internet, fashion, shopping malls, advertising and social media images portray women in ways that objectify their beauty. In a 2017 research study by Statistic Brain with over 4000 females, 80% say the images in the media make them feel insecure, and 91% are unhappy with their bodies and resort to dieting.*
This lie takes root at a very young age and rapidly destroys the girls’ soul. The same study shows the lie progressing with age, starting with girls as young as 6 years old: 42% of girls in 1st through 3rd grade want to be thinner, 81% of 10 year old girls are afraid of being fat, and an astounding 90% of 15-17 year olds want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance.*
Harmful behaviors and psychological disorders manifesting from this lie:
- Creating an alluring, seductive image through hair, makeup, clothes, posts on social media
- Excessive social media engagement and addiction to social media “likes”
- Shame, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders
- Excessive dieting and eating disorders
- Bullying their peers
- Consuming mood altering substances—energy drinks, cigarettes, drugs, alcohol—eventually leading to addictions
- Suicide attempts leading to death

Psychologist Erin Smalley (Focus on the Family) says, “Find the wound, bring the lie to the light of Jesus, replace the lie with scriptural truth, and then the wounds to the soul can begin healing.” Freedom Counseling’s David Burris explains, “The brain cannot worry and be grateful at the same time, cannot think on something negative (the lie) and positive (the truth) at the same time. It is imperative to make a gratitude list whenever you spiral into self-hate thinking.” As Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
