Heather Creekmore joins Amber to discuss negative body image, how we make body image an idol, and the greatest transformation story of all–salvation.

Body Image Questions Heather and I Discuss:
  1. (3:59) You are a follower of Jesus who speaks to the spiritual root issues of body image. What is your personal journey with body image struggles?
  2. (7:19) What happened when you realized I have body image struggles and I am going to do something about it?
  3. (11:17) Like so many Christians you didn’t experience body image help by hearing “just love your body because God does” or “focus on how you are fearfully and wonderfully made”, so what did help you shift your mindset and begin seeing your body in a positive way?
  4. (16:07) In your book Compared to Who you contrast the modern concept of self-esteem with what the Bible says about loving God, our neighbors and ourselves. Will you share a bit of that contrast with our listeners?


Quotes to Remember from Heather Creekmore | Body Image:

“By the time I got to college, I was feasting and fasting consistently.”

“That’s when He showed me that I was chasing a body image idol and that was the spiritual root of my issues.”

“I think what happens too often, even in the church, is that we take Scripture, and we turn it into self esteem mantras.”

“God did make us for a purpose. We are his masterpiece. We’re the imago dei. We’re made in the image of God. But if we turn all the focus on us, as we remember that it’s almost as foolish as looking at the Mona Lisa and praising the Mona Lisa instead of praising Da Vinci.”

“If you are a believer and following Jesus, He’s given us a before and after story that is so much more awesome than losing some weight or transforming our bodies.”
