Hello all – I hope you are all getting a good start to the holiday season. I wanted to take a few minutes to share a bit of what is happening in my world in regards to faith and fatness!
If you have not yet seen the news on my social media platforms, I am excited to announce that my book – Fat and Faithful: Learning to Love Our Bodies, Our Neighbors, and Ourselves – will be released September 1, 2018 from Fortress Press.
In Fat and Faithful, I share my journey from body shame to fat acceptance and show how to care for the image of God found in every body—including our own. When the world tells us that our bodies are too much, I want to remind us that all people—no matter their size or ability—are beloved of God.
I am also co-hosting a twice-monthly podcast with Amanda Martinez Beck. Our podcast is also called Fat and Faithful that you can find wherever you listen to your podcasts. Or, you can listen online at: : http://fatandfaithful.libsyn.com/
Amanda and I send out a once-a-month newsletter with updates on where we are each writing about body image in the church and some tips fora healthy body image. Receive this in your inbox by signing up at this link: Fat and Faithful Newsletter
As always, you can find me on various social media platforms:
