Yib: Your Inner Beauty
Empowering women to fulfil their destiny
At YIB we are passionate about helping women thrive and flourish in their God-given destiny.
To that end we have developed tailored training and coaching programmes
to guide women to walk in their unique destiny.
God has put a great treasure inside each and every one of us – a calling; drawing on the unique mix of gifts and talents. And the greatest treasure of all, living within us, is God Himself. The author of great potential, great power!
So why do we not always experience His power in our daily lives, nor fulfil this potential?
YIB helps women discover what God thinks about us, and who we are in Christ.
So that you will be empowered to live according to who you really are – beloved, beautiful and eternally valuable!
And you will shine in this world.
You are unique, and God has created and designed you to have
an impact – God’s impact – in the world around you!
Ruth van Mierlo founded YIB in 2012 having undergone several years of personal development and preparation. Ten years earlier, Ruth experienced a strong sense of calling to equip and encourage women and as a result the name ‘Your Inner Beauty’ was born.
Training Courses, Workshops and Coaching
The first YIB training course took place in 2012. This has now developed into today’s programme of YIB training courses and seminars supported by an enthusiastic staff team.
Women from different countries and Christian denominations have taken part, and YIB has received very encouraging stories of how women have grown and changed as a result of the courses.
You can read more in Testimonials.
The YIB programme has been designed to help women reach out and move towards their God-given destiny.
The course consists of three training modules: Know – Grow – Go!
Each module consists of eight evenings of around two hours.
Knowing the love of God for you and discovering who you are in Christ.
Growing in Kingdom principles and discovering how this influences your life in a practical way.
Discovering what gifts and talents God has given you and making a plan to step out.
The course is progressive, so YIB-2 is designed for those who have completed YIB-1.
And similarly for YIB-3 following 1 and 2.
YIB Refresh is for women who have completed the full YIB training course Know-Grow-Go, and seek further coaching in the practical implementation of their Personal Power Plan.
Our heart is to help churches and womens’ groups to equip their members to walk in their God-given destiny.
Our Dutch YIB core team comprises four women of differing and complementary giftings and backgrounds.
This team is assisted by a group of motivated ladies who have already completed the YIB training programme.
We are also establishing an international team to help support groups and churches around Europe.
Thanks to YIB I have realized how great God’s love is for me. I have been challenged to think about God’s plan for my life. He has shown me such beautiful things and spoke to me personally. It has been a real adventure!
For me YIB arrived at exactly the right time. My tendency to think negatively about myself has completely gone, because I have learned I am a child of the King. Although my husband decided to leave me, I know God will never leave me. Also the prayer of the women around me helped me to keep on seeking God and find my refuge in Him.
YIB has made me even more enthusiastic to turn my dreams and desires into action. The teaching has shown me even more how precious I am in God’s eyes. I got even more motivated to use my abilities and talents for Him. I would advise every woman to follow a YIB training course!
It is like a journey during which you experience God’s love afresh. Discovering you have so many competencies, talents and gifts from the Spirit. It also is very special to pray together for each other and to be living testimonies for God.
Laughing together, crying sometimes. You are being enouraged in everything. Together you have a lot of fun. But it also is serious. You can tell your story. There is love.
To know I am intimately loved by Jesus has touched me deeply. I am free to love Jesus, without any concern I would not be worth it. I have been strengthend by 1 Corinthians 6:11: “I have been cleansed, sanctified and justified in the name of Jesus Christ, by the Spirit of God.”
YIB has helped me to gain more insight into who I am and how God views me. I have been given stepping stones to takes steps towards God and towards His purpose for my life. YIB has given me friends who, just like me, want to focus on God. Sharing experiences and receiving teaching has enabled me to grow spiritually.
Being connected to each other through one goal. Serving the Lord. You learn from each other, exchange testimonies, encourage each other and pray for another. There is so much openness and knowledge of the Bible.
Teaching. Warmth. Encouragement. Being build up and supported. Getting to know the other women. Receiving direction. Hearing truth. Being equipped.
