Brand New Release from Shellie Bowdoin.
Becca Ketterling – Women’s Pastor, River Valley Church “Are you tired of being on a dieting roller coaster? Are you looking for freedom from the condemnation and frustration of failing so many times? Then, Find Your Weigh is just what you need. Shellie talks about allowing God to change your mindset about food. It’s an incredible journey of freedom from the struggles surrounding your weight and your self image. I encourage you to dive in and let God work through this incredible book and study.”
When we think about losing weight, we immediately think of a diet. However, diets are only short-term fixes to target our weight, which is really just a symptom of our behavior with food. If we really want to change our weight story, we’ve got to target our behavior with food and uncover the beliefs that actually inform that behavior. The problem is that most of us have no idea what we believe or why we act the way that we do with food. It’s time to walk in freedom over food and weight.
Join Shellie Bowdoin as she shares her own weight journey and lays out practical, “aha” steps to help you renew your mind with food. You will learn how to uncover your beliefs and target your faulty thinking about food with actionable steps and the truth of God’s Word.
