You were made for more than a love/hate relationship with your body.
It’s one thing to know in your head that you were created in the image of God. Yet it’s quite another to experience this belief in your body, against the cultural ideals of a woman’s worth. And between the two lies a world of frustration, disappointment, and the shame of somehow feeling both too much and never enough in your body.
Jess Connolly is a bestselling author, sought-after speaker, and trusted Bible teacher who knows this inner conflict all too well, and this book details her journey–and yours–of setting out to discover how to break free from the broken beliefs we all hold about our bodies that hold us back from our fullest life.
The truest thing about you is that you are made and loved by God. And the truest thing about Him is that He cannot make bad things. This book will help you believe it with your whole self, as Jess guides you through an eye-opening, empowering process of:
- Renaming what the world has labeled as less-than
- Resting in God’s workmanship
- Experiencing restoration where there has been injury
- And becoming a change agent in partnering with God to bring revival to a generation of women
Far from a superficial issue, self-image is a spiritual issue, because God has named your body good from the beginning. Whether your struggle is with eating and exercise habits, stress or trauma, infertility or injury, this book makes space for you to experience God meeting you in this tender place, and ring His freedom bell over your body in a whole new way.
From the Publisher
The truest thing about you is that you are made and loved by God. And the truest thing about Him is that He cannot make bad things.
“I believe your body has been provoked enough already. I know that you and I, just by being women who live in this fallen world, have had our bodies named, judged, harmed, and harassed by the enemy of our souls and by people. I believe that healing is found in Jesus Christ, but I do not believe the healing that is ours to access negates the pain any of us have lived through. Because I believe your body has already been through enough pain, my hope and prayer is that this book will not inflict any more potential harm to you. I believe we can stand on that truth because God said it.” – Jess Connolly, author of Breaking Free from Body Shame

“If you’ve ever hated the mirror, felt uncomfortable in your own skin, or complained about the body God’s given you, this is for you. Freedom and a biblical perspective is ours and Jess leads there courageously and vulnerably through this book.”
Kennesha Buycks, author of Restoration House
“This is the message we’ve all waited for. A collective sigh for our souls from the prophetic voice that is Jess Connolly.”
Alli Worthington, author of Standing Strong: A Woman’s Guide to Overcoming Adversity and Living with Confidence
“What an inspired message for women in this generation! Breaking Free from Body Shame is a bold war cry against the lies of the enemy that causes women to hide behind our bodies, rather than rejoice in our uniqueness. Through her grace-based approach, Jess flips the script on what it means for our bodies to be good and invites us to name and reclaim who we were made to be.”
