We are really impressed with (and totally support) the work that Lindsay and Lexie Kite are doing with Beauty Redefined!
They are LDS, although their work appeals to a broader audience.
They’ve done many stake and regional firesides across the U.S., and find that their work really resonates with LDS audiences because their approach to body image and body positivity is radically different than others in the field (and very in line with many Gospel teachings).
They teach that the key to positive body image is to help women understand they are MORE than bodies and MORE than beautiful.
Girls and women are suffering with poor body image not only because of the unattainable ways beauty is defined, but because they are being defined by beauty. That is the basis of their research in body image resilience, or the ability to grow stronger because of pain—not in spite of the pain and anxiety experienced through our bodies.
The sisters were invited to speak at a recent TEDx SLC. They have a following of nearly 70K on FB
and 21K on IG
, but want to get it beyond their general audience. If you like what you hear, please share it!
