Body Image Breakthrough is a short but powerful exploration of the concept and real-life implications of good and bad body image, communicated in the language of LDS Church doctrine and faith.

Wightman uses scriptural stories from Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego's refusal to bow down to Nebuchadnezzer's statue to the Fall of Adam and Eve to illustrate how our modern culture sets us all up, though women and girls in particular, to worship the idol of outward appearance and to feel destructive sham

This was everything I hoped it would be. I loved it so much. It's written Elder Bednar-style, where you read a chapter then look up scriptures, ponder, journal.... which really helps you to internalize it. It's all about body image, but really my favorite part of it is how it teaches you to go to the Savior for help with ANYTHING.

Other things I loved about it: it really made me aware of how much time during the day I spend thinking about/taking care of my body compared to learning, serving....

There are times in life when a book gives the message that you need to know. For me, at this time, this book has given me a lot to think about and see the need for change. I like that the book doesn't take the stance of being the mirror image of someone else. You must be a certain dress size to be fit, you must look a certain way.. This book is about becoming a better me, but doing it in a Christ centered way.

One of the thoughts from the beginning of the book caught my attention. "Since only 4%

I thought I had a pretty good image of myself, but after reading this book, I realize that I have a lot to work on, as most of us do. It's so easy in today's day and age to get caught up in what the world deems beautiful and perfect and in doing so, it's easy to neglect the truly important things in life--family, spirituality, and happiness.


Ms. Wightman made several very interesting points--how much time a day do you spend either thinking about your body (what's wrong with it, how to improve, e

This book was SO MUCH MORE than I imagined it could be!
Not only did it dispel some myths, but it brought HOPE to my search for understanding.

I, like most women, have a poor image of my body.

I look in the mirror and say with much sadness, 'this is as good as it gets' just like Mia from the movie Princess Diaries.

This book explains why we as women feel that way and gives clear guidance in how to overcome those feelings.

Using AMAZING scripture references and PERSONAL examples Jaci Wightman writes a

I ran across this book as I've been thinking about ways to help my girls have good body "self-esteem" as they grow up. It was okay. She had some great thoughts that I took away from it, but for me it was a little too "churchy." which is awful to say because I am "churchy." I liked the way she talks about fasting from those things that make us feel bad about ourselves (i.e. magazines, billboards). A few of her scripture references seem like a stretch to me and I had a hard time when she wrote ...more

This is a wonderful book about the importance of appreciating our bodies for the gift that they are instead of always trying to change them into something the world thinks we should be. I loved the way she used the scriptures through out her book to help us see more clearly through God's eyes.

Loved this book! I read it too quickly--I'm going to read it slower now, take notes, and do the activities at the end of the chapters. I learned so much!
