by Courtney Westlake
When Courtney Westlake’s family was given the shocking news that their daughter, Brenna, was born in 2011 with a severe, life-threatening skin disorder, they began to discover a new and different beautiful in their lives – one that values extraordinary differences and appreciates the wonderful sameness found in humanity.
In A Different Beautiful, Courtney explores what her family has discovered in raising a child with physical differences and what she has learned about true beauty. Through her personal insights and experiences, Courtney shares how you, too, can learn to find and celebrate God?s version of beautiful in your life, especially within our differences and struggles.
