Unconditional love is hard to find but Joy & Andre seem to have found it. Joy Perry is an American based Vlogger who shares her struggle of how she has battled with her weight. Over the past few years, she has lost and gained weight over and over again.
She battled with self-love and spent a lot of time disliking how she looked. However, she revealed that God helped her.
“Once I started digging into God’s word and not only reading His truth but BELIEVING it as well, I started to realize that my worth, my value, and my hope is found in Christ and Christ alone and what I look like or how I view myself doesn’t change the value that God has placed on my life. Here I am years later, excited for growth, excited for the change, excited to become more healthy, excited to be the best me I can be! I’m loving the woman who I’m growing to be in the future, but I’m also loving the woman who I am now! I’m no longer making changes for a season or for others. I’m making changes because I want to be a better, HEALTHIER version of my already beautiful self. I love the woman I am. She’s needed, she’s valued, she’s loved and she’s lit!!”.
However, she also had a man in her life, Andre, now her fiance who loved her regardless of her size. If he did not, he would not have proposed to Joy.
Joy still overjoyed shared her proposal experience from people regarding her proposal below:
“Over the past few days I’ve been overwhelmed by so many beautiful posts from people all over the world..I’ve seen beautiful, and encouraging comments…I’ve seen negative, degrading, and ignorant comments that can be discouraging but I’m so happy I know who God says I am and I believe in His truth! I want to encourage every woman who feels as though they have to meet certain criteria in order to be loved. That if you aren’t a certain size or a certain look, that no one will accept you for you and pursue you whole heartedly. Crush that lie right now! You are fearfully and wonderfully made! I’m so thankful I serve a God that loves us with no limitations! Set the standard high for yourself. Love yourself! Being single is not a punishment! Take this time to grow in Christ, and be the best you, YOU can be now! On another note, Thanks to everyone that have shown us so much, love! We are all smiles! Be encouraged and know that you are loved, valued, and appreciated”
