About

"In a world of cute captions and photo filters, nothing is more refreshing than a girl who is brave enough to tell her story. Landra's honesty and vulnerability will draw you in and then challenge you to see yourself in a new way--through the eyes of your Creator."--Holly Furtick, cofounder of Elevation Church, Charlotte, NC, and author of Building Friendships that Fit and Becoming Mrs. Betterhalf


If you've ever struggled with your identity, Landra Young Hughes has a radically simple message for you: give up. Specifically, give up your need to be in control of how other people see you. Instead, let God's words--not yours and not others'--define you.

Through her own deeply personal story of trying to control her circumstances and others' perceptions of her through an eating disorder, Landra points the way toward a life free from self-obsession and self-resentment. She shows you how to listen to God's voice, let go of the struggle for perfection, and live authentically from your deepest self.

Because outside of a growing relationship with your heavenly Father, no other love (or lack of love) has the potential to improve or implode your life like the love that you have for yourself.



Landra Young Hughes is the daughter of prominent pastor Ed Young Jr. and Lisa Young of Fellowship Church. Because of her upbringing, Landra has developed a passion for seeing people maximize their God-given potential and embrace their God-defined self-worth. She and her husband, Brad, lead Fellowship Church's Norman campus and live in Oklahoma with their daughter.
