Kathy Collard Miller5 Stars Out Of 5September 28, 2010Kathy Collard MillerJust imagine for a moment what it would be like to be more concerned about reaching out in love to someone rather than wondering what they think of you. Just imagine for a moment what it would be like to not feel inadequate because you don't wear the latest styles. Just imagine for a moment what it would be like to not feel horrible about adding two pounds. That is the world Margot Starbuck invites us into in her book, Unsqueezed: Springing free from skinny jeans, nose jobs, highlights and stilettos.Yet, I'll be honest. I put this book on my desk, intending to read it but kept avoiding it. I had recently bought skinny jeans, my hair sports highlights and I would love to wear stilettos if I weren't so tall. As for the nose job, I finally grew into my too-big-nose. I instinctively knew Unsqueezed would squeeze my complacency and comfort zone and I didn't want to be uncomfortable. When I finally gathered the emotional energy to reading Margot Starbuck's book, I was indeed challenged but I laughed all the way! Margot is a funny writer. A very funny writer. I'm not one to get easily humored by the written word. But Margot is truly funny...even as she punches you in the guts with truth and conviction. Lest I scare you away though, Margot communicates a loving tone with a passion for drawing us closer to God's loving heart. In fact, her book was spiritually deeper than I thought it would be. She calls us to a heart level of seeing how the things of this world do not satisfy and only finding our contentment in Christ will truly bring the satisfaction we desire. She does not hit you over the head; she beckons you to search whether thinking how to lose 30 pounds will make you more desirable. Or wearing the latest fashions will make you acceptable to others. She calls you to think about your heart, not just your body image.
