Thank you for wonderful , awesome and very needed true message!

This message was awesome! Holiness, and the beauty that Holiness creates is greater than outward temporal beauty, & society's standards !. I am a former Beauty Advisor/ Skin Care & Make Up Artist from Macy's, whose job was to consult women and do beauty make overs, which conformed to society's standards of beautiful. (like touched on in this video regarding the Greeks standards) This message was so very true, and reached me like never before. Thank you for this true and well said message. Chag Chanukah to you all!.

God, the ultimate beauty

Oh, how I found agreement with what has been said. I am blessed beyond all measures. No need to adhere to a false worldly system. Through Him, I am everything.

Awesome!

Awesome message!
As a divorced woman, I hope to one day find a man who believes in true beauty and cherishes me for such. I see beauty just this way as you describe. I will never settle for the superficial, nor will I allow myself to be compared to other women. The Almighty made me wonderful and I am beautiful.

Also, I look to find true beauty in a man. If/when I find him, I will definitely honor him as most handsome.

I will share this video with my daughters. Happy Chanukah and all the best to everyone!
