5.0 out of 5 stars My body is not a project
By Kelli Schoefer on June 26, 2021
I used to be the girl who would blow up social media with posts that promoted diet culture, make countdown to summer-body posts, and who posted countless before and after photos, seeking “likes” for achieving a smaller body. I was laser focused on seeing the number on her scale go down. For years, I treated my body like a project- exercising for the goal of a dramatic before and after photo, shaming myself for not getting "results," obsessing and restricting only to later binge, self- sabotage, completely lose control, ALWAYS thinking my body was bad and needed to be fixed. Food and body image and the scale were my "little g gods." I hate to admit it but I spent more time in my day thinking about what I could eat or should eat or might eat than about anything else in my life, including my family and friends. I kept my eyes fixed on my own body and all the many ways I felt I had to improve it.

Jess Connolly's book Breaking Free From Body Shame has helped me understand God’s original design for me and for my body.

I was made WELL, created GOOD by a Father who loves and delights in His daughter. The purpose of my body is not to GET cut quads or 6 pack abs, but to BE His hands and feet. My body is not a project.

I no longer feel like I used to- like my body is bad, like my body needs fixing, like my body isn’t “summer ready,” like the scale matters even a little bit, like smaller is better.

I was wrong. Man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart. God looks at the heart. God looks at the heart.

And this body? It’s God’s home. I will not shame it, rate it, discount it, forget it, misuse it, curse it or worship it ever again. I pray you don’t either. We don’t do that anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars There IS freedom now!
By Bethany Dunlap on June 22, 2021
These are words and a topic that we need right now! Jess Connolly writes so honestly and vulnerably about her own story and struggles. Our bodies are good because there is a good God who created them. Whatever thought, feeling, trauma, or mindset you've had with your body, there is freedom to found today! I am so excited to read and reread these words! God says our bodies are good so that now we can do the very things He has called us to do. Even if you don't know what God says about who you are, I pray that you come to know the gospel truth and know Him as the Savior of your life! Highly recommend this book to all women. Let's walk in freedom together and encourage one another!
