      Karla! I have no idea! Let me check it out. I have your email address from the comment and if I can figure out a direct link I’ll email it to you! So sorry about that. Technology. ugh.

    I enjoyed taking the image quiz. I do encourage women to dress to reflect Gods glory. Those in our fellowship need to reach out and we need to be sure we are approachable. Clean hair, clothes that fit properly, light makeup. Our senior pastor says if the barn needs painting, paint it. This book might be a good fit for summer. I will review it and then make a decision.

      Haha! Love the barn analogy, Geri! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with us looking our best! My book certainly doesn’t discourage women from doing this! Rather my book helps women who feel stuck in the rut of chasing beauty and who feel like they never “measure up.” I’ve had women ages 18 to 75 tell me it’s changed their perspective–in some cases women who struggled with their body image for 50 years have found new freedom. I hope you’ll check it out and thanks for taking the quiz! God bless!

    “Body image is your beast.” deep down I already knew this, I’m 52 and so sick and tired of this beast….

      You are not alone! I get messages from women over 60 all the time that say they’ve spent a lifetime struggling – so you’re catching it early! It doesn’t have to be that way. I pray you’ll check out some of the content here and especially check out my new book: Compared to Who? A woman who followed this blog and is a few years older than you commented that she’s finally finding freedom for the first time, in decades, after reading it. I pray it might help you too! Praying for your freedom! In His Grace- Heather

    It says that I beat the body image beast – I really thought differently. I think mostly because I do already understand, that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities….. I learned a few years back that these are heart issues and we have to deal with these spiritually.
    Thanks for the quiz.

      That’s great Erica! And, sometimes having our heads and hearts agree on what we know is another thing, entirely! What’s the verse about “My spirit knows what to do but my flesh is weak.” Alas, hard to test for that in a quiz, right? 😉 Thanks for taking it!

    Well I seem to have beaten the body image beast. I have an autoimmune disease that really limits my day to day activity. When I was younger, I wanted to have curves, well I have them now LOL! .

    Gosh I thought those thoughts were normal until I saw them on the quiz. I knew I had some issues but really didn’t think it was that bad, my husband has been telling me I needed to change, but I thought he is just a guy looking at it through a male perspective. I should have known as hard I tried to raise my daughter (22) with self esteem and confidence, only to find she is struggling too. She is the one that pinned your website to me. I did everything I thought to break the cycle, because my mother is one of the worse of self image, she has become anorexic at age 73 and no matter what I say it doesn’t help and no one else in the family thinks she needs counseling. We are all Christians but it seems we can see good in everyone else but ourselves. That devil is so subtle isn’t he???
    I wasn’t sure after taking the test, were we to wait for prayers or say the one prayer you gave us?

      Hi Rhonda. I think you’re very normal – we all are able to right it off to “everyone worries about this stuff.” That’s so hard about your mom, I know these issues run deep in families. I’ve seen it too. There is a prayer you can download – it should have arrived to you via email. If you didn’t get it yet, I’d be happy to send you another one. It’s a printable “Body Image Prayer” to put in your Bible or on your mirror or wherever you can reference it daily. Let me know if you need me to send it again – you can email me through the contact info. 🙂

    Hi Heather – thanks for this site
    I’m looking forward to looking up and utilizing your daily prayer

    May I suggest you add to your some of you quiz questions options/choices about thinking you are “too thin”, and not just the “too fat” questions, or dieting questions;
    and maybe some specific questions about cellulite, skin, spider veins, wrinkles, big nose, too tall, too short, etc.,

    I took the quiz but it did not relate to me in many ways….the questions seemed to be geared towards people who are struggling with weight issues

    I found your site because I am lately battling with a fairly significant body dysmorphic struggle, I have struggled with it off and on all my life, but it is kicking in big time lately….. but I am tall and thin, and always have been….it’s not about weight

    As you well know, this is not about what we “really” look like, it is a mental, emotional, spiritual battle regarding our own self esteem and self worth…..and thin people struggle with it also — I am not anorexic, I eat very well! but I am just thin by nature, I am not young, I am successful in many ways, I have a job and a ministry in which I am in front of people all the time, sometimes many people watching and listening to me…..and people would not know to look at me or talk to me that I have a problem, but I suffer from huge body image concerns that have caused me to hide from relationships and other activities

    In fact sometimes thin people are isolated additionally by even people who have the “same” image problems
    (I can’t count the number of times in the past I have tried to be either compassionate towards someone and/or reached for help for myself, and people have actually laughed disdainfully and/or “rolled their eyes” and said I couldn’t possibly relate to what they are going through
    I have felt “rejected” by the very people I thought would support my struggles because I didn’t “look” like they thought I “should” in order to have these struggles

    And PS….my daughter is burn survivor…severely to her face; more than 50 reconstructive surgeries…..now there is a huge body image struggle.
    I speak faith and beauty to me, and I speak faith and beauty to her but we both still struggle…..
    it would be nice to find a site that accepted both of us, right along with all the people who have the same fight we do….it just looks a little different

    So just a thought….you might want to add some things to your quiz about “thin” people or “aging” women, or cellulite, or scars, or actual body deformities or etc………

    Thanks again for this site — I will look for your encouraging emails, and I pray that your outreach will be a strength to, and a light to MANY!

    Blessings!

      Abigail! Thank you so much for that helpful feedback! It’s been a while since I re-evaluated the quiz and made it…but, you are right . . .I certainly don’t want to isolate people because they don’t struggle in the same way as others do. Thanks for pointing that out! 🙂 I’ll get to work!!! Blessings to you and your daughter on your journey to body image freedom!!!

      Yes, something about deformities. I have sever scoliosis and have struggled for years to cope and hid it. My pain levels don’t help. I’m also overly thrifty so won’t spend a lot of clothes. But I try to make sure I look nice every day with comfortable clothes and some blush. I believe God wants us to look our best and shine for him. I even go to PT often in order to stay strong and stand as straight as possible. Did I also mention I’m 66, with a heart condition, RA and other diagnoses. So goes life. Thanks you for this site, as many need it. I’m thinking of forwarding it to others.

        Thank you so much Irene. Making those suggested fixes is on my to do list for the month ahead. I really appreciate you sharing your story and forwarding the site. So many women struggle, in a variety of ways as you and Abigail have pointed out. We all need to know and experience freedom through Christ! Thanks again!

      Hi Abigail,

      I’m new to this board and what you described is exactly where I struggle. I’ve always been very thin or at least thin due to my genes and inheriting a great metabolism. I’m 55 years young but have struggled in this area since I was a teenager – except back then I wanted to have curves, larger breasts, etc. I’m 5′ 3″ and weigh 106 pounds but yet I still struggle with not feeling attractive because I have cellulite, wrinkled skin from sun abuse, varicose veins, etc. It is hard to talk to others about this because they are usually trying to lose weight. They have no clue to depth that I struggle with this EVERY day. Right now my biggest struggle is not have a flat enough stomach, constantly looking in the mirror to see if my belly looks to round or bloated. It drives me crazy and I know that I need help; especially in not being so self-centered!

      Thank you again for what your wrote.

      Karen

    I’m only 15, but I really struggle with body image. My parents and friends tell me I’m not fat, but I have such a difficult time believing them. My mom tells me often that God created me and He doesn’t make mistakes, but that just makes me feel guilty for ruining the body He’s given me. I’m not overweight or obese, but I still struggle because I don’t have abs or wear a size small. I’m really thankful to have found this site and hope that reading the encouragement will help me beat this Beast!!! Thank you so much!!

    “Body image is your beast.”

    Yes, and water is wet and pizza is awesome. 🙂

    Jokes aside, I’m thankful I discovered your site – looking forward to encouragement and Biblical guidance.

    I was hoping my image wasn’t as bad as I thought, but this quiz confirmed what I hoped wasn’t true — I’ve got major body image issues. I’d say the quiz is pretty accurate for me 🙁

    • Heather Creekmore

      Ahhh… my friend. Do not despair. You are not alone in your struggle! I hope your results encouraged you rather than discouraged you? I can assure you that so many women are wrestling the body image beast. But, like the answer said…there is great hope! Don’t give up!
