“We are beautiful because we are sons and daughters of God, not because we look a certain way.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“We’re not protecting our daughters if we forbid makeup, eschew fashionable hairstyles, or wear dowdy clothes. The feminine form is beautiful. Sure, we don’t want to hide behind makeup or wear immodest clothes to draw attention to ourselves. But there’s nothing wrong with wanting to accent our femininity.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“Perhaps a past of bingeing, restricting, or purging comes back to haunt you from time to time. Maybe you have to fight hard battles against vanity, gluttony, and shame. But with God’s saving power, every new day is a gift, an opportunity to detach yourself from tormenting thoughts about food or how you look and to attach yourself to God. Remember, we all hunger for God, more than we hunger for a big bowl of ice cream or a perfect physique.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“You are a beloved child of God. But please remember this, too: You are human. You cannot expect to eat perfectly, look perfect, or be perfect. When you stumble, pick yourself up, even if you have to do it again and again.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body

Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body

Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“We clean our plates, yet we’re still famished—starving for something other than food.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“I used to think, that when my old inner demons started creeping back into my life, that it was a sign of failure or moral weakness. But the saints have shown me that part of the human condition is to struggle with the same sins and suffering over and over again. Once I accepted the fact that I’d probably always have to be on guard against spiritual attacks related to food and my weight, I began to really recover.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“God sees nothing but beauty in you.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“The good news is that there is one kind of food you can never have too much of. The best way to fully recover from a food addiction or body-image problem is to fill up on the Lord.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“If I invite God into my life, I am and always will be good enough.”
Kate Wicker, Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
“We are what we are, and life is what it is, but God is bigger than any cross we bear”
