Young women (and men) are bombarded with 3000 messages a day from our culture, which promote an unrealistic “ideal beauty,” and sell us products to lose weight, gain muscle, and change our appearance. I was an international fashion model, but I struggled with eating disorders and felt less than. I was not good enough just as I was. As children of God, made in God's image with the imprint of the Divine in our DNA, we must counter media’s messages and connect to the Divine within. As an ordained minister, I facilitate body image workshops, lead retreats, keynote camps, and more, that dispel the myths of media and “ideal beauty” in fashion magazines, and empower participants to claim their diverse and wonderful beauty given by God. For my usual hour-and-a-half interactive presentation, participants cut pictures out of magazines, process the findings, view a presentation of my story from artsy-athlete to miserable model to mission-oriented minister. We look at scriptures that promote a positive body image and end with shouting in a mirror, “I am a beautiful child of God!” I have access to resources about eating disorders, as well as a website that includes links to groups who inspire positive body image. My presentation can include soundtrack of positive messages in popular songs, and they can be used for lectio divina. I tailor my message to the group size and age, denomination/religion, specific theme, and time. I would love to share this workshop with your youth and/or women’s groups or spend a weekend leading a retreat or week keynoting camp.
