If there ever comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefit of mankind, it will be a force such as the world has never known.
— Matthew Arnold

what's the mission?

Crowns of Beauty exists to redefine true beauty according to God's original design. In a world where women are often given distorted expectations on how to act and live, we desire to rewrite the story. We seek to celebrate women in their unique beauty and empower them in their calling.

We aim to cultivate a creative space for women to connect through exchanging powerful stories and engaging in honest conversations that champion one another to wholeness + greatness. We also provide a platform for women of influence to share about their kingdom-based endeavors in hopes to inspire and activate others!

Lastly, we are advocates of justice who desire to be a voice for the voiceless. We raise awareness on important social justice issues such as sex trafficking by sharing raw stories, participating in outreach events, and partnering with non- profit organizations that are making a difference!

We are passionate about seeing every woman bloom + flourish into who they have been created to be!

“Yes, my story is not pretty but here it is. This is it in its raw form…and it’s the truth. It wasn’t pretty then and it’s not pretty now. But the BEAUTY comes from the freedom you find in sharing it. That you’re no longer in that space, you’ve acknowledged it and you’re moving forward!”

A Story on Forgiveness + Restoration

“A lot of people think the process of forgiveness is hearing an apology first and then accepting it. That’s false. It’s entitlement. Pride is dangerous. Are we truly forgiving if we are only willing to accept what we hear and/or what we see? Forgiving is pardoning yourself from bitterness.”

A PRICELESS GEM.

While it might have only been one night that we were able to get her away from the bar, it will be a night that she will remember and realize that she is seen for more than her body. That there is such thing as love without agenda or manipulation. She is a gem. So precious and so special. A price tag cannot be placed on a gem so beautiful.

REJECTING REJECTION

It was not long until I started to believe this was true and I began to reject myself. I no longer saw my worth and my value. I yearned for acceptance: to be seen, to be known, to be loved. As a result, I felt I had to perform and be the center of attention just to be seen! This later drove me to people pleasing, unhealthy friendships, bad and emotionally abusive relationships. I ended up compromising and seeking affirmation from men because I was trying to prove to them that I was worthy of love.

OUT OF CONTROL

#CONNECTWITHHER

Our first response is to try to scramble around, pick up the pieces and cling desperately to anything we can possibly control. Maybe if I look good and my life looks good, no one will see the ugly reality. I was good at this, an expert even. I obsessively sought to control everything from food intake to relationships to my personality and appearance. When life seemed out of control, I felt like if I could at least control something then I would come out on top. It got to a point where I began to get recognition from people for being and looking put together “always.”

ANSWER THE CALL

#SETHERFREE

I didn’t know what to expect and honestly, nothing could prepare me for the things I witnessed there. The open corruption of this place was unlike anything I had ever seen before! I would watch police officers pull up to the girls wanting to buy sex. People were openly having intercourse on the streets. I would see young, pregnant girls standing on the street corners who didn’t look a day over 13 years old.  People were robbing each other and pulling guns on each other. My heart broke so deeply.

Beauty in our Brokenness

#CONNECTWITHHER

I decided it was time to feel honestly and deeply. I found myself hurt, disappointed, confused, angry and frustrated at a circumstance that did not happen the way that I had hoped, expected and, even prayed for. Too often, we are so quick to dismiss the feelings that don’t feel good. I learned and I am still learning that God gives us permission to be emotional beings. We can be honest, messy, raw, and undignified before Him. He can handle it all. He prefers that more than when we gloss over our pain

To all my lioness sisters who feel something wild, fierce, and beautiful stirring within them. You are stunning, You were born for this moment. Don’t be afraid of your strength, questions or insights. Awaken, rise up, and dare to realize all you were created to be.

Women are intellectual, emotional, spiritual…creative, athletic, familial, political, caring, compassionate, relational, strong; they may desire autonomy and independence, or family and children; they long for commitment and fidelity; they are searching for deeper meaning and purpose; they long to have an impact in the world. Simply put, women are not a sexual buffet for the gratuitous appetites of men; they are image bearers of God and the crown of His creation.
— Benjamin Nolot
