(More) Distored Images Of Self

Restoring Our Vision

February, March

The way you think and feel about yourself is of great importance and has an enormous impact on your life. More importantly is how God thinks and feels about you. Distorted self-images are not really who you are and can be corrected. Restore your vision and be renewed as you come to see yourself through God's eyes.
