When we’re in full holiday swing, it’s pretty common to try to balance the holiday festivities (like food and drinks!) with being healthy. Do you feel anxious about your weight around the holidays?
In this episode, I’m digging into what God says about our bodies. I share my experience coaching women in the weight loss space; why I left that space; and what you can do to shift your perspective from the temporal to the eternal when it comes to your body and self-perception.
Why you’ve got to check out today’s episode:
Learn about how my experience with body dysmorphia taught me how distorted my view of my body and self were; and how it pulled me away from the Lord.
Find out what God says about us and our bodies.
Discover the common pitfalls for Christian women when unintentionally believing what the world says about who we are and how to navigate seasons that are heavily targeted by diet culture.
“There is no reason to try to control your body for your own purposes.”
