Plain Jane

Have you seen this show?  It is ridiculous!!

Basically a "plain jane" girl comes onto the show for a makeover, hoping to change enough to be able to approach a boy she has a crush on.

I totally disagree with this show.  It makes me so sad that this show is telling girls that they have to change themselves in order to be like by guys.  The girl featured on tonight's show was already beautiful, unique, special.  She didn't need a makeover.  If anything, she needed the opportunity to find confidence in herself. 

I understand that feeling good about the way you look can enhance your general feelings about yourself.  However, placing self-worth in looks is not a solution.

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
Verse from 1 Samuel 16:7 New International Version
