Redeeming Beauty, Inspiring Women


Yay!! It is time to open up nominations for the 2018 Redeeming Beauty, Inspiring Women Photography Exhibit!! This exhibit showcases women from all walks of life and the beauty they share with their communities. True beauty isn’t merely what is seen on the outside, but what is revealed from the soul. It is found in the stories of perseverance, hope, sacrifice, and love. Use the form below to nominate a woman who displays these qualities. Nominations will be open until October 31, 2017.  Featured women will be contacted by January 1st.

The Redeeming Beauty, Inspiring Women Photography Exhibit raises money for the Grow Into You Foundation retreat for teen girls in foster care. “These teens often age out of the foster care system at 18 years old with little to no support. The possibilities ahead of them don’t look like college, starting a family, or financial stability. The Grow Into You Foundation coaching and mentoring changes the way these teens see the world. It changes how they “show up” in the world. For more information on how you can support the Grow Into You Foundation, contact Erin NeSmith by email at
