I’ve always felt strongly about sharing a message of self care and loving the body God has given me. But after having my two boys, I felt the need to really speak to the heart of mamas through the journey of how my body changed through pregnancy, postpartum, and now just living an active life with two littles!
It breaks my heart to see how often we women feel hurt and experience self-doubt in this area. The struggles of hair loss, new hair growth, stretch marks, weight management, cellulite, low libido, and feeling “normal” often cause us to struggle with negative thoughts.
It’s easy to listen to cultural lies that we’re never pretty or skinny enough. Not to mention that when everyone needs us all the dang time, we sometimes don’t prioritize feeling strong and actively loving our bodies.
Loving your body means NOT ONLY choosing to accept it and think positive thoughts, BUT ALSO actively taking steps to pour into and take care of your body.
It’s a balance, and I’m ready for us to find it again together this year.
Maybe you’re thinking, “Yeah, that sounds nice Heather, but I really don’t have time to figure that out right now.”
I got you, sister friend! I’ve been brainstorming and I am so STINKING EXCITED! For the next 14 days until Valentine’s Day, I am going to go beyond just writing words here and actively take your hand.

If we were talking over coffee, I’d tell you that God gave us one body and He says for us to treat it like a temple.
That literally means treat it like the place that He dwells, because He does dwell with us through His Holy Spirit every single second.
Would that make us look a little more kindly at our bodies? We’re human, and we’re imperfect, but perfectly loved and made perfectly worthy by God. Let’s ignore the lies of the enemy and embrace our identity in Christ together!
