FABULOUS!!!! I finished this in one evening because it just did not want to be put down. If you've struggled with being under- or over-weight, have body image issues, are concerned about your daughter's body image, if you tend toward destructive self-talk or just need to feel like you've had a real private heart-to-heart with a friend who understands, this is definitely worth a read. There are workbook pages as well to help you walk through matters step by step, and a kind of credo to copy and k...more

Recommends it for: ladies!
Although God rescued my body from eating disorders while I was in college, my mind was still stuck in that way of thinking.

This book made me so stinkin' mad at the beginning... I wrote my angry comments in the book (no, you can't borrow my copy!). But I stuck with it and it was such a tool for God to point out how my mind needed to be renewed... and it opened up a whole new world for me!
In this book Bevere shares her personal struggles with weight and how she overcame it all by trusting in God and relying on His strength.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who has issues with food or weight-- even if it's just that you obsess about losing a few more pounds, are a chronic dieter, or if you base how you feel on how you look.

This is a must read for every person I know. Lisa states clearly the truth about how our thinking and attitudes about our bodies have enslaved us.

Thank you, Lisa, for writing this work. I'm buying more copies and giving them to a lot of my friends.
Good book that deals with self-image in a culture that is overly consumer with it. Does a nice job of pointing the reader back to God and his Word.
Great book for any woman who has issues with her body (and who doesn't). The first of her books that I've read and now I own most of them.
