Book Review - The Body Battle by Sheralyn Bucknell
Many people might not know this but I've struggled with a body battle for most of my life. It's really only been in the last 2 years I've become comfortable in my skin and (dare I say it) happy with myself.
The Body Battle deals with the cause behind the issue of why we struggle with body image and weight. It's not a physical thing like we all think it is, it is more spiritual and about how we view our value.
Sheralyn Bucknell is a pastor at C3 church in Oxford Falls. So yes this is a Christian book but don't let that stop you if you don't have a faith or a belief as the truths about how we see and value ourselves and our self worth will speak to every woman out there.
At the end of each chapter there are journal questions to answer which I found very insightful and helped me delve deeper into why I've struggled most of my life.
I was really captured by the idea that God would be interested in my health and weight issues. Everything we do and experience in life is connected to our beliefs and spirituality, so why would something as big and powerful as our body be any different. We can be free from this war and the freedom is through God.
This book has really helped me connect with God in a very different way than ever before and I'm so grateful to have found this great resource. I hope it can help you too.
The Body Battle is available online at either Word or Koorong.
This is not a sponsored review I just really liked the book and wanted to share my thoughts with you.
