JDLogan5 Stars Out Of 5I needed to read this!June 13, 2017JDLoganQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ive struggled with body image for as long as I can remember, including a ten year eating disorder. The hardest part of the battle has been my thinking. This book approaches the issue as a heart issue and gives very practical and applicable ways to win this battle. Thank you, it's exactly what I needed to read. I was given a free book to review. It's one I highly recommend to women who struggle in their thinking about any aspect of their body.
Jennifer5 Stars Out Of 5Not just another diet book full of platitudes and tired ideas! This will change you!June 12, 2017JenniferQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I wasn't sure I wanted to read this book. I'm so tired of hearing all the same stuff that doesn't work, but Heather was SO real. She wrote the thoughts I was thinking. I felt like someone had read my mind. So much of her story related to mine!
I can't remember a time I didn't struggle with body image. As soon as the bullying started in school, my self-esteem and sense of worth vanished even though I was no different than I'd been the day before. And it's been a constant struggle in the 40 years since. I'm ashamed of the way I've let body image affect my life. I've cancelled plans or been too embarrassed to go places. I've felt like a failure as a person because of my weight and appearance. I've cried so many tears wishing I could just be normal. The joke was on me! I'm normal - like the 91% of women who also struggle with body image.
I've been on a journey to let go of my body image struggles for the last couple of years, but Heather Creekmore's book has freed me in a way I didn't expect. I really wasn't sure I wanted to read another book about weight loss or loving myself the way I am. I've heard all the platitudes I've tried all the diets. I wanted something real, something that would last. Compared to Who? gave me both!
I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with body image, even though it mostly pertains to women. I did receive a free copy from the author, but the opinions are my own! I've never been so glad I read a book. If you take what she says to heart, you will change. And freedom never felt so good.
Sheila5 Stars Out Of 5Like having coffee with a friendJune 12, 2017SheilaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A great read!
I have six kids, two of which are daughters. I know my struggle influences the girls as well as how boys view women. I can not wait to share this with my girls and also my journey on recovering from my issues.
Heather is very open and honest in her book. It really feels as if you are sitting down, having coffee with your bff, instead of reading a book.

Shannan5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic book with an even better message!June 12, 2017ShannanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is amazing. What can I say? Heather hit my heart right to the core. As someone who struggled for many of my younger years with eating disorders, body image issues have always been that big black cloud that seemed to follow me all of my life. Though I healed long ago from my eating disorders, inwardly, those voices that drove my unhealthy behaviors never left.
Heather's real, honest, and often hilarious book reframes this difficult issue through God's eyes. She guides the reader with how to find strength through spirituality to heal from body image issues. Her book will cause you to question everything you ever thought about not living up to the media's standard of beauty while putting that nagging voice inside your head in its place.
From Heather's book "The gospel speaks directly to our hearts and calls us valued, no matter what shape our bodies are in. His truth speaks to our souls and says we are loved beyond (what our hips) measure. The gospel confronts our messy lives and says, "I love you messy. Now, let me help remove the rest of that stain."
As a mother of four and a trained counselor, this book is perfect for any female who seeks to free herself from this seemingly endless battle. Even if you are thinking that this book may not apply to you because you do not have issues with body image, reading this can give you some insight to a problem that so many other women face.

Amy5 Stars Out Of 5Yes, you want this book!June 9, 2017AmyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Are you like me? I can get ready in the morning and be happy with how I look and then I see someone who looks better than me (smaller frame, better hair, clearer skin, etc.) and all of sudden Im comparing. Heather has clearly explained the struggle many of us have and gives us practical ways from the Bible to free us from this trap of comparison. This quote from the book tells what she hoped it would accomplish: Through these pages, I want to inspire you to view your body image battle with a fresh perspective, so you can find the true joy, peace, and freedom that only Jesus offers. For me, she accomplished this goal.
