97% of women say they struggle with body image related issues.
But there is hope to break free; to dare to see your body as God declared it—good.
My guest Jess Connolly, author of the new book Breaking Free from Body Shame, shares life-changing truths for women who struggle under the weight of fear, comparison, unhappiness and poor self-worth when considering how her body looks or performs.
We discuss what body shame is, how it affects your mental health, what healthy concern and care for your body looks like, how the Church has failed to engage this conversation, how we can teach our children to love their bodies and so much more.
After reading Jess’s book I am finding more freedom in this key area of my life and I trust this conversation will be pivotal for you as well. Tune in and share it with a friend, now.
Because your body is already good.
