I would be honored if you have agreed (even if only with parts of DYM) or have been interested to hear the true heart behind it....

I have tried to be as honest as possible here. (There may be areas that-- I can't see currently, that were dishonest--but I tried!)

I didn't listen to this again before uploading it. I plan not to listen to it, (but maybe I will when I need help getting refocused on what I think is God's heart is for DYM). I would be honored if you at some point were able to listen (though beware: my vulnerable heart is revealed in it).

I do sincerely ask that you would choose wisdom if you have feedback for me--or want to talk about this to others--as Jame 3:17 says: "But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere."

Thanks and love,

Belah

Hi there! Belah here. It’s just me today, and I will be talking about the vulnerable issue in my life: my struggle with body image and how it has affected my life in general. Every day we are faced with the “standards of beauty.” We are bombarded with skinny women on the covers of glossy magazines, in ads---everywhere we look. It’s about time that we take a look at ourselves a different way; be proud of who we are and for what we are. The body is just a vessel; the soul is the real deal. You are more than your weight. Listen in as I talk about how I struggled with eating disorders, growing up with the teasing, going into a marriage with my insecurities, and how I slowly overcame all these with some steps that you, too, could use in your own lives.
