Seeking Imperfection | Body Image, Marketing, and God (Dolive)
In March 2013, after seeing an advertising campaign for Victoria's Secret that was targeted especially to younger female demographics and much too sexy, Evan Dolive, a concerned father and ordained minister, wrote an open letter calling for Victoria's Secret and other companies to view girls as human beings, not objects.
What happened next was truly amazing. His letter hit a nerve. It was viewed numerous times—3.9 million times to be exact—and Dolive was interviewed by national news publications and appeared on CNN and Headline News.
Dolive didn't want his 15 minutes to be in vain. So he turned it into a labor of love—Seeking Imperfection, —a book that's grounded in biblical insights, stories, reflection questions, and prayers for anyone who believes in empowering children to grow up to value themselves for who they are.
