Loving the girl in the mirror isn't about changing how you look, but allowing God to change how you see. Teasi Cannon’s lifelong battle with body image nearly destroyed her. Yet today she feels blessed - not because the size of her lower half has changed but because her perspective has. In her often hilarious, no-nonsense style, Teasi's gut-honest journey and transparent insights will propel every one of us who struggles with...you name it - bad hair or chubby cheeks, skinny arms or wide hips - to realize our value and beauty...even if nothing ever changes on the outside.

I would, and have, recommended it to my friends (girls) because, even if you aren't overwieght, if you live in this society you have most likely taken on some negative body images as society fixates and perpetuates the "perfect" womanly form of super thin. As if being 5'11" and 120 pounds is the only standard of acceptable beauty there is.
Teasi boldy shares her life, her insecurities, and her pain, but she does it with humor and grace. You will find yourself laughing at times, and other times in tears for the places along her journey that were sad, if not downright horrific. Yet, she has no tone of self pity. She has a humor and a confidence of a conqueror.
There are so many. Two stand out. One when she asked for God's healing and she felt Him walk with her into her past, to the age of 7 years old, when her Uncle bound, gagged and raped her. Memorable because of the BEAUTIFUL way that God turns this memory around and affirms how much Teasai is loved, adored and how precious she is, and always has been, and that God/Jesus NEVER left her side, not even in that darkest of moments. A tear jerker, if not outright sobs! :) But it really is A FEEL GOOD STORY.
The second one was when Teasai's husband were vacationing and staying in a motel, he asked her to join him down at the pool one evening. At first she declined, but the second night he practically begged her to join him, so she trudged into the bathroom to put on her "humiliation" suit....hilarity ensues and she describes the process of getting that tight, stretchy, clingy, spandex up her body and over her hips, tugging and pullying, hips gyrating....If you have ever HATED bathing suit season, you will laugh yourself silly.
I LOVED Pam's performance!! She has great tone, influx, and was totally believable! One of the BEST performances EVER. Pam Ward was amazing and her performance added a lot to my listening pleasure and enjoyment.
We are so precious, so loved, regardless of our size. Quit believing Satan's lies.Lighten up, and know you ARE Beautiful because God made you so!!!
This audiobook is a real blessing. I have listened to it several times now and shared it with 3 friends, who also loved it.
Yes. It has a good message.
Yes. It has a good message.
Probably not. I would depend on the context of the story.
The story is a bit hokey, and the narrator ads to that. But the message is good, so I kept listening.
