Overview Teaches women to accept and care for the body God gave them.
Publishers Description "Comfortable in Your Own Skin" is a repackage of the popular book "Loving Your Body." Through the stories of other women and individual study questions, Dr. Deborah Newman applies sound biblical advice, combined with her clinical experience, to reach out to women on the topic of body image. Dr. Newman helps women understand that they are wonderfully and fearfully made by God, in His image. By seeing themselves as He sees them, women will begin to accept themselves just as they are.
Community Description Suffocated by low self-esteem and beaten down by poor body image, we have embraced the lie that says we need to look a certain way to be accepted-even by ourselves. Dr. Deborah Newman explodes the world's beauty myths and reminds us that God accepts us and wants us to see ourselves as He does. Discover that developing a healthy body image begins with identifying who you are in Christ.
Filled with powerful "aha" moments, this life-changing book will nurture your heart with biblical truth and inspire you to adjust your thinking to align with God's perspective. You will realize that growing closer to the Lord naturally creates a desire to care for the body He gave you. With this combination book and Bible study, you will acquire a deep understanding of what it means to be fearfully and wonderfully made.

The best book I have read dealing with body image May 23, 2007
I just want to say that this is one of the best books that I have read dealing with body image. This has been something that I have dealt with for many years like I am sure most women do. This is a life changing book if you take it serious. I suggest you answer all the questions in a journal. I think that it is a book that all women should read. Each of us deal with this issue in one way or another. It would take pages for me to say how it has changed my view of myself. It really teaches you how God looks at you. It is an amazing eye opener to read this book. I highly recommend this book. Absolutely the best.............Lori Smith
