You Are Beautiful

“I see your true colors shining through
True colors and that’s why I love you
So, don’t be afraid to let them show
True colors are beautiful… like a rainbow.”
—True Colors/Cyndi Lauper

High school me loved Lee jeans. Button front and bell-bottom big. Ahhh, but the cool kids wore bibs. So, in my quest to fit in, I snagged some too. But, my brand wasn’t THE brand and instead of fitting in, I felt foolish and left out.

Tina Gibson: You are Beautiful

Why do we try so hard to be the same ole of someone else?

Authenticity fills the nooks of our vulnerable with valuable, y’all.

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10 NLT

It has taken me a (very) long time to embrace my “true colors” …the one-of-a-kind chick God created me to be. These days, I’m comfy with my quirks. I’m choosing to love better. I’m seeing the world around me with grateful eyes and wow, that rainbow is beautiful.

YOU are beautiful, beloved.

Don’t waste the wow of you for the whatever of the crowd.
(PS—they don’t see you like God does… not even close!)

You are worth way more than any perceived pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

Pop your colors.
Live true.
Be you.

You are so loved. XOXO

Spread your joy,



  1. I LOVE IT ALL, Sis. I love you. I am grateful that I have been able to watch your beauty and freedom bloom for the past six years. You are a cool chick and do not let anyone or the nasty one tell you any different. I am proud of you. You dust us all with your Jesus passion and always leave sprinkles of joy and wisdom when you leave a room. Shine, Jesus-girl, shine. I love you tons. Your Sista-Sis

    1. Oh man, Sista Sis…your words popped my heart wide open!! I’m still in awe of how God took our little coffee date and turned it into LOVE.
