    Hi peeks! The reason that some hair is different than others is because God loves it that way<3
    God tells us to just view His creation and look! All the different flower types and animal types and
    they are all very beautiful. It's that simple really. I think you are beautiful too.

    Here's a scripture I was sharing recently 1 Corinthians 15:24-28
    And John 17:3

    I disagree that black women are haughty, think its abit stereotypical. I think the real reason why we may seem to have problems with our hair is due to our judgements as to what good hair is. In reality there’s never a problem with our hair, the problem is in our minds.

    Further, I will never understand why black people and all those who consider themselves black (half-black) are so willing to except that there’s something wrong with us?! There is nothing wrong with any race of people on this Earth and the world doesn’t need an excuse for anyone’s inclusion in it. How can we ever truly value and appreciate each other’s unique differences if we first don’t value and appreciate ourselves? Dare to think for yourself.

    Also, keep in mind that just because the majority of your subscribers are black not all of us may be christians, black people after all can also be Buddhists, islamic, hindu, ect. If you expect people to subscribe to your channel we expect you to make videos that speak to all of us not just a select few as we are all unique individuals with backgrounds as diverse as our hair.

    The world is full of people trying to sell you something to fix the nothing that’s wrong with you, “you need to be a certain weight, your hair needs to be a certain texture, your skin needs to be lighter, you’d look better if your hair was a different color” outdated concepts that try to define a woman’ self worth are no different. The choice is yours, either buy into all that or don’t.

    Black women have such a hard time growing their hair because the majority of us aren’t natural and turn to quick fixes like relaxers instead of learning how to actually care for our hair the proper way, not because we walk around with some ghetto “oh no you didn’t” attitude or whatever it was you were trying to say.

    Biblically speaking, Zion always refers to Israel. The daughters of Zion are the Jews. Aside from Adam and Eve, generational curses aren’t actual curses, but rather, unchanged familial behaviours, practices, etc., passed on from generation to generation. Also, our hair is a blessing as we were knit together in our mother’s womb, fearfully and wonderfully made.

    Our hair wouldn’t grow because we didn’t know how to properly care for it, use of harsh chemicals, tight braiding, genetics or various disease processes.

    All black women don’t have “problems” with their hair. You’re entitled to your opinion and YOUR interpretation but I think you’re buying into typical stereotypes about “typical” black women. And yes, I do know that you consider yourself to be a Black women. Anywho, I say stick to the hair, fashion, and makeup vids. I can do without your interpretation of the Bible.

    YT is for ppl to express their thoughts, ideas and creativity, if someone wants to watch than watch, as the viewer click a button and move on if it doesn’t sit well. Hun, it’s just YT try not to spoil it with unkind and/or bad energy. Before judging, assess what u want to express to encourage ppl, even if it’s not what you would agree on or like. Ur opinion matters as well so don’t think this is to take anything away from you as well. Be good;)

    “…..IN MY OPINION WE ARE NOT CURSED SHE IS READIND TOO DEEP INTO IT…”I just cut and pasted this, the reason why is, if you’re going to say something you must practice the exact same thing you’re attempting to preach. You too are sharing an opinion and reading/seeing too much into what Peeks is choosing to share with her viewers. Also, this video doesn’t say or have any to do with religion, she is reading a scripture and expressing her thoughts on something that makes sense to her.

    yes my daughter of zion you are correct. i see the lord showing you the truth of who we are. i think the message bible translation drives the point even more: God says, “Zion women are stuck-up, prancing around in their high heels,Making eyes at all the men in the street, swinging their hips,Tossing their hair, gaudy and garish in cheap jewelry.”The Master will fix it so those Zion women  will all turn bald—Scabby, bald-headed women. The Master will do it.

    I respectfully beg to differ. There were posts telling Peeks to stick to hair and makeup, some using profanity and one even referring to her mixed race background uneccesarily as a means to attack. There are some vile comments on here. Peeks stated at the start that it was HER OWN interpretation of a verse, she never put it out as fact. As far as I’m aware she has every right to do that. This isn’t an oppressed society. We all can (dis)agree and debate issues but there’s no need for negativity.

    NOBODY IS ATTACKING HER, SHE DEFIINATELY HAS A VOICE AND SHOULD BE CAREFUL HOW SHE PUT HER RELIGIOUS VIEWS AND INTEPRETE THE BIBLE..IN MY OPINION WE ARE NOT CURSED SHE IS READIND TOO DEEP INTO IT..NOBODY ATTACKING YOU JUST BE CAREFUL BECAUSE RELIGION IS A TOUCHY SUBJECT STILL LOVE YOU PEEKS

    Hello Peeks!

    My name is Christina Patterson. I am the founder of the women’s ministry Beloved Women (www.belovedwomen.org). Our mission is to guide women to God and the knowledge of who they are in Him: His Beloved. I am also currently transitioning to natural!!! For this reason I have been following your YouTube channel. I like the fashion and beauty advice but it was your hair transition that got me to subscribe and it has been very encouraging for me during this time.

    I was especially excited when I saw you openly talk about your beliefs. Today faith and spirituality have become such taboo topics. It is very refreshing to see someone openly share what they believe. To me that shows true faith. I was really interested in the scripture you shared on this video about hair in the Bible and the daughters of Zion. I too decided to do some investigating.

    If I understand correctly from the video, based off of Isaiah 3:16-17;24, you conclude that the consequences for the sins (being haughty) of our (black women) ancestors has been passed down generations and explains why black women have such a difficult time with our hair.

    Who is Zion?

    When I did my search I concluded that the term Zion refers to Jerusalem. (http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H6726&t=KJV) This was the location where God’s people lived during the time of this scripture. Also, the earlier parts of this same passage refer to Jerusalem and Judah so it appears in this particular verse the author simply uses a different name to describe the same people. The entire passage is about God’s disappointment with all of His chosen people and their related consequences. I would be interested in learning what resources might have lead you to the conclusion that daughters of Zion meant black women. They were Jewish so yes, they would have been women of color but not black as we think of today as in African descent.

    The Curse

    I do believe these women were cursed for their sin. The women had placed their attention, faith, and worship in themselves. For this reason they were consumed with their outward appearance. This was an offence against God because God had laid the law out beforehand clearly stating that His people should not have any other God but Him. This is the first commandment. “You shall have no other gods before me.” – Exodus 20:3 The second commandment was not to worship idols. “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them” – Exodus 20:4-5

    So were the daughters of Zion cursed? Yes, because they worshiped themselves. They got caught up in their beauty. Now the men were sinning too. If you read earlier in the chapter you see they were taking advantage of poor people to become rich and not using the authority and leadership God gave them to serve others. For this reason God took away their leadership positions and gave them bad leaders. So in the same way, the women became haughty, meaning they were prideful, they thought they were better and deserved better and they indulged in their beauty. They had adorned themselves with jewelry and cloths and hair accessories. Now doing those things in and of itself is not bad. But their hearts had turned to those things and it became worship of themselves and their beauty. Even worse they used their beauty to manipulate and control others to gain power. The problem with that is God is the one that made us all beautiful, so instead of using it to give God glory they used it as a tool to serve themselves and not serve God, which is our number one duty. So for that reason God is like, ok I’ll take your beauty away since you do not want to use it properly. That was their curse.

    Does that curse still apply today?

    I really believe that particular curse was specific to those women at that time. However, I completely understand your logic in that statement because I think of the curse on Adam and Eve after the fall in Genesis chapter 3. Adam was cursed, the soil because hard to toil so providing for his family became difficult. Eve was cursed, childbearing would be painful. And those things still seem to be true today. However, in Isaiah 3 this discipline from the Lord seems to be specific to this group of women for a period of time. Even if the curse did apply to us today, as we mentioned before Zion does not mean people of African descent or black people so the idea of this being a generational curse would not have affected black women. And even if by some chance the curse did affect us and that is why we struggle with our hair (b/c there is a struggle!) we would have to ask why many black women have long healthy hair. For these reasons I do not interpret this scripture to tell us our hair is cursed. Also we see other examples of groups of people being cursed that are clearly not the case today. Think of all the curses the Egyptians endured for not releasing God’s people from slavery (Exodus 7-11). Those curses were temporary for an intended purpose during that time period. I believe the curse on the daughters of Zion is the same.

    The True Curse

    However, this entire conversation brings up some really good points and wisdom for African American women and our hair. Is our hair cursed? The answer to that depends on who you are talking to.

    When we decided that our natural hair was not beautiful, when we decided to look to other races for the inspiration of what “good hair” is and not the Creator of our hair we cursed ourselves because we accepted a mentality that truly limits our beauty and I do not think that is God’s intention for any of His daughters. I’m not saying don’t get a relaxer, or do not straighten your hair. I am saying to not be enslaved to your hair, to your beauty or to your looks by chasing a standard of beauty outside of God. We have so much more to offer. When I say enslaved I mean don’t believe the idea you absolutely have to do something or look a certain way in order to be beautiful. Because one day it’s straight hair, the next it’s curly, then it’s blond then it’s short. And then you are just chasing the wind.

    The True Gift

    Our hair is not only not cursed, It is a gift. Our hair defies gravity, it’s full, it’s big, it’s GLORIOUS. God gave us ALL beauty, but we are not to put the gift over the Giver. As much as we ladies love beauty and looking and feeling good that is not better than having a personal relationship with God. So when God took the hair and clothes and accessories from the daughters of Zion it was really an act of grace. Those things were getting in the way of them worshiping the Creator of their hair, the Giver of their jewels, the Provider of their clothes. He is greater than those things, which is why He is completely and rightfully deserving of all our praise and attention and obedience and love and worship and all of us.

    Think of all we do to seek attention and love from men. God is doing that for us, even if it means He has to take it all away so we may experience what TRUE LOVE is: Him. Yes, our hair is a gift from God and we should accept it as such. It might be a struggle at times but we do not get to choose our gifts but the bible tells us all God’s gifts are good (“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” – James 1:17 NIV).

    The Old and The New

    I read a lot of the comments on this video and many said things like” Jesus came so we are not under the law”, “we are no longer cursed”,” we are under the New Testament now”.
    I need to address this because it can be misleading. First, DO NOT throw out your Old Testament! Yes, it represents the Law which is God’s standard for us in order to be in right relationship with Him. BUT we are cursed because we cannot live up to this standard. Jesus says in Matthew 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them” (NIV). God’s standard for righteousness (outlined in the Old Testament) STILL applies today, it has not changed, and it has not been thrown out. God is a HOLY God that requires a HOLY standard from His people. So we’re cursed because Romans 3:23 tells us “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. So this is where Jesus fulfilling the law comes in handy because Romans 5:8 tells us “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Instead of God’s punishment for sin, which is death, Jesus took the death we deserved. But we do not only benefit from His death, we also benefit from the perfect life He lived. This means the perfect life Jesus lived by fulfilling the law and obeying all its commands (from the Old Testament) will be accredited to us and our sins will be forgiven if we place our faith in Him. So for those who believe in Jesus Christ it is as if we never sinned AND as if we always obeyed. Romans 10:9-10, and 13 tells us: “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved … For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (NLT) But there’s more Good News! Jesus did not stay dead. He overcame death and now offers eternal life to those who place their faith in Him.

    If you want to experience the true love of your Creator, a love no man can give you and no amount of beauty can fulfill I invite you give your life to Christ. This means no longer living for yourself as the daughters of Zion did and start living for the One who gave His life for you. (this is what it means to be born again) To do so pray this simple prayer:

    “Lord Jesus Christ, I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life. I ask your forgiveness and now turn from everything which I know is wrong. Thank you for dying on the cross for me to set me free from my sins. Please come into my life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and be with me forever. Thank you Lord Jesus, Amen.”

    If you prayed this prayer please let me know at connect@belovedwomen.org

    Much love to you. Peeks please keep the videos coming.

    In Jesus Christ,

    Christina
