Heart Lessons Podcast // Episode Twenty-Six // Surviving the Issue of Body Image


I’m so excited to introduce you to my guest for today’s show. Today you will be hearing from Sarah Bragg of the Surviving Sarah podcast, which I know I’ve mentioned a time or two before. Today Sarah is sharing her story of her struggle with body image which started when she was just nine years old with an offhand (albeit rude) remark from a girl she barely knew and turned into a ten year struggle over her appearance. I think this episode is going to be such a great resource for young women who might also be battling with body image and for parents of these young girls who are trying to help their daughters through the struggle. But it’s also a great resource for any Christian woman who is struggling to be content with who God made her to be, whether it is appearance or personality or stage of life. The truths Sarah shares are sure to help you see that your worth is infinitely tied to the fact that the God of the universe created you and calls you by name for something special in His kingdom.

Heart Lesson: Learning contentment in who I am and who God made me to be.

1 Corinthians 10:31 – Whether therefore you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Did any part of this episode strike a chord with you? Maybe the part about positive vs. negative words? Maybe the tips on how to glorify God with food choices and exercise? Maybe the idea of contentment in who God made you to be hits home in another area besides just appearance, like it did for me. Whatever the case, head over to instagram or facebook or shoot me an email and let me know! I would love to hear from you 🙂
