Your Scars Are Beautiful to God
Finding Peace and Purpose in the Hurts of Your Past
Physical scars represent a story, a moment in one's life, and they show others that there is a history of healing. Noted author Sharon Jaynes shares with women how their internal scars—marks from past hurts and mistakes—also represent a story of restoration.
With empathy, personal insight, and a best friend's gentle spirit, Sharon helps readers:
- recognize Jesus through their scars
- receive grace and forgiveness
- remove the mask and be real
- restore the broken heart
- release the power of healed wounds
Encouraging chapters, inspirational stories, godly wisdom, and a Bible study guide lead readers to give their wounds to the One who sees their beauty and who turns hurts into hope.

"With honesty and personal vulnerability, Sharon Jaynes openly shares the hurts of her past and uses the pain as a platform upon which others can find fresh faith and renewed courage. Your Scars Are Beautiful to God is filled with stories of people who chose positive action steps based on biblical truth in the middle of devastating personal challenges. The Bible Study Guide makes it an ideal ministry tool for small groups and for personal application. This book is for everyone who has had a less-than-perfect life."
—Carol Kent, speaker and author of When I Lay My Isaac Down
"As I read, and loved, Sharon Jaynes' book, I was reminded of a quote from Romeo and Juliet: 'He jests at scars that never felt a wound'. Most of us have been wounded in life, and all of us can learn much from someone who takes 'scars' seriously. In this book, you'll not only reflect on your own scars—but understand why Jesus made such a point of pointing out His scars as well. Please read this book if you've been hurt, or if you're serious about helping someone else who carries scars from their past or present hurts. Or just read it to learn more about the One whose nail-pierced hands offer each of us a world of help and hope in these challenging times."
