Book Description

Body Image Lies Women Believe
  • Are you insecure about your looks?
  • Have you ever compared yourself to someone else and found yourself wanting? 
  • Do complements or put downs determine the image you have of your beauty?
Real Stories of Overcoming Body Image Lies Women Believe with God's Truth

Throughout this book, Christian women share their stories of how they have struggled with body image lies and a distorted view of themselves. However, each of their stories also contains hope - the hope of replacing these lies with God's truth. Our prayer for you is that you find encouragement within these pages and allow Christ to transform you with His truth. 

We Are Each Created Unique

God has created each one of us with unique abilities, unique talents and a unique personality. As women we are influencers and God has given us that role and our beauty to share with others. Yet so often we settle for a counterfeit. The enemy has counterfeited our idea of beauty, convincing us to share our beauty with the world in a distorted way. Today that often means that we see our beauty as what we look like on the outside.

What Lies Have You Been Believing?

Join us for the journey of replacing body image lies with truth from God's Word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Worth Reading March 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great book that gives Biblical inspiration for why women believe the way they do. I really enjoyed reading this book as it touched on the problems I have been having with my self-esteem and how to handle them. I plan on keeping it around to review at later times to help friends and children with any problems they could be having as well. Very enjoyable book. Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Body Image Lies Women Believe: And the Truth of Christ That Sets Them Free
by Shelley Hitz
I wish I'd read Shelley's book when I was a young woman. So many females are raised to believe that they are ugly, fat, don't dress well, or have bad hair. They believe that these lies represent who they are. It's no wonder that women discover they have low or no self-esteem. The book begins with moving stories from real women, who have dealt with lies about body image. They not only reveal their past, they share the joy and beauty they've found in Jesus. A theme that "God looks at the heart, not the outside appearance" resonates throughout the text. After reading the shared stories, Shelley provides a wonderful chapter that offers steps to overcome the lies by learning and relying on the truth of God. I recommend Body Image Lies Women Believe for all women, teens through middle aged, even older women who have never learned that God thinks they're beautiful. Also, mothers who want to break the cycle and encourage their daughters should read this wonderful message from God.

"In society, beauty is [judged on] a thin line, and while we're busy trying to balance on that line, we forget that to the only One whose opinion truly matters there is only one definition of beauty. [Jesus] is beautiful. He created "beautiful." He is the epitome of beauty. If anyone should be judging what we look like, it should be Him. In all fairness, when He looks at us, He should turn away in disgust [because of our flaws]. If I were Him, I wouldn't want to look at me either - but that's just the thing; He does. He sees me and despite myself, He does not close His eyes. The Bible declares that we were made in His own image, and that's not just the cheerleaders; it's the fat girls, the tall girls, the short girls, the nerds, the girls no guy has ever given a second look. And when He looks at each and every one of us, He does not close His eyes."

One of the most interesting parts of Body Image Lies Women Believe is the life stories of the many women who contributed to this collection. You can't help but connect with the writers. So many of their personal experiences mirror our own, suffering in the many ways women do when we accept the body image lies fed to us and believed by us. In each chapter, a person openly shares her pain...telling her story.

While the stories are widely varied, with some suffering disfigurements from either disease or trauma, others suffered because they were vulnerable to nuances of teasing and subtle and not so subtle prodding from loved ones in our lives, acquaintances, classmates and even total strangers. Perception colors our world. Once we've received the "message" that we're somehow unacceptable and flawed, we often believe anything that supports that perception and reject even blatantly obvious truth about ourselves.

These are simple but powerful readings. Each chapter is written by a different person who gives their story and perspective on overcoming the societal messages about body and size. Very inspiring. Excellent book. Highly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather sweet, good for young women August 1, 2013
By Imba
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good book for women that have issues with their looks (don't we all!) but especially young ones. I might not have needed it myself but might recommend it to young women with issues, it is not "great" but rather good, did not finish it because it didn't really apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reading June 5, 2013
By Terrie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reading the stories made me realize how my problems are so small, compared to what others have been through. If God can fix situations that are so much bigger than mine, then he will help me with my situation. God is healing hurt all all over the world. AMEN! If you don't already know God or have a relationship with him, you will see his love, forgiveness, and healing through the heartfelt stories in this book. Praise God, and God bless those for sharing their journeys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the lies June 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As I read this book, I saw myself. Women always believe that society sets the standard for our bodies, but individually, we do. We need to take care of ourselves through healthy eating and exercise, but genetics have plenty to do with what we have. Embrace it and allow God to let you live live to the fullest.
