Transformed by others' testimonials and your book <3

Hi, I would like to write a bit of my own struggles here but I also want to add how much your book and bible study book has also helped me. Thank you so much for making such helpful and true resources available for download. It is the first time that I ever felt that I was touched so deeply. And I feel like true healing, from the inside out is actually happening for me too!

I'm 19 now, but ever since I was in grade 7 I struggled with accepting the way I looked. It all started when I gained a lot of weight due to emotional eating. I never even spoke or even ever gave the word "fat" ever much meaning in my life. Not until other kids gossipped and bullied me for being fatter than most of them. What's funny is, I was actually almost unweight, but all because I gained too much weight, and felt pressured socially and so on, this word "fat" and all the other words, like diet, carbs, fats started to rule my world. And I've gone through bulimia, binge eating, self-injury and so many emotional problems that went in the way of connecting with other people at all. This went on for so long, even after I met friends who taught me true friendship and the beauty that radiates from really truly loving yourself. And yet, all that ever came first in my mind was that I have to lose weight. That I MUST lose weight or else I would never love myself. And that I'd never feel happiness.

I found a desire to find true joy and peace in life in God's love for me and not in my appearance and what I have. Your book and the stories of all these other girls has been really mentoring me and leading me in a path that I feel in my heart that it's the true way to really living my life!! Thank you so much! <3

So happy for you...
by: Shelley

Katie,
I'm so happy for you :) I can almost see your true beauty radiating just from the words you wrote on the screen!

I feel like Isaiah 61:1, 4 has been a key verse for my life because of all the freedom and healing God has done in my life...and now I share it with you because Jesus is doing the same thing for you!

"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners...

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
that have been devastated for generations."


Fixing our eyes on Jesus,
Shelley
