Publisher Comments:

Loving the girl in the mirror isn’t about changing how you look but allowing God to change how you see.

Teasi Cannon’s lifelong battle with body image nearly destroyed her. Yet today she feels blessed—not because the size of her lower half has changed but because her perspective has. In her often hilarious, no- nonsense style, Teasi’s gut-honest journey and transparent insights will propel every one of us who struggles with . . . you name it: bad hair or chubby cheeks, skinny arms or wide hips . . . to realize our value and beauty. Even if nothing ever changes on the outside.

“If you’ve ever wrestled with self-image issues or doubted that God is with you in your most painful moments, you need this book. Teasi Cannon is the real deal.”—Pete Wilson, pastor and author

“Regardless of what you weigh or the crazy diets you may have tried, My Big Bottom Blessing will set you free from the numbers game to embrace God’s beautiful best for your life!” — Constance Rhodes, founder and CEO of FINDINGbalance

“Teasi Cannon is essentially a truth-and-grace bomb just looking for a place to detonate—especially for girls who never quite feel like they measure up.” —Lisa Harper, author and Women of Faith speaker

“Snappy, authentic and powerfully written, Teasi has finally given real women something BIG to cheer about.”—Ayllison Allen, Broadway actress

Teasi (pronounced Tee See) Cannon is married to her best friend, Bill, and they have three awesome children: Carli, Ben, and Sam. Teasi has a master’s degree in pastoral counseling from Liberty Theological Seminary and is a sought-after speaker who loves to help women remember who they are in Christ.

Synopsis:

Imagine yourself standing in front of a mirror right now—completely naked. Can you say that you love who you see? Believe it or not, I can. 

Is it really possible to fully love the person you see in the mirror? Teasi Cannon says it’s not only possible but absolutely necessary! It’s time to move beyond obsessing about our backsides or a few misplaced wrinkles. Instead of desiring to change how we look, it’s time to let God change how we see.

Teasi shows you how to stop believing the mirror and start believing Jesus. After years of hating her body--especially the size of her lower half--she shares how an ironic chain of events led to a beautiful untangling of understanding and hope. She discovered that even when inner voices raise a chorus of criticism and discouragement, the truth—and plenty of humor--heals the heart and sets the spirit free.

Whatever it is that you despise most about yourself (it doesn’t have to be weight) can become the catalyst for serious life change. My Big Bottom Blessing is a joyful, compassionate, and wise guide from someone who knows the power of exchanging the limitations of body image for the liberty of knowing that a woman is beautifully made in the image of God. 

 

Synopsis:

The media feeds us distorted images of beauty and what an “ideal woman” should look like. In My Big Bottom Blessing, author Teasi Cannon offers a way out of distorted body images and the pain of self-rejection. She says, “My obsession with fat and failure robbed me of a lot of the good in my life. I have been miraculously set free from the lie that being thin equals being beautiful.”

My Big Bottom Blessing offers Teasi’s story—and real-life solutions for the millions of young women who struggle with poor self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy. Whatever it is that you despise most about yourself (it doesn’t have to be weight) can become the catalyst for serious life change. Teasi’s story proves that emotional pain can be healed, and real self-confidence found from knowing that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. 

My Big Bottom Blessing is a joyful and wise guide to exchanging the limitations of a merely human body image for the liberty of knowing that we are made in the image of God.

Every woman will find herself—and a new way of seeing—in this life-changing book.

If you are tired of being defined by your pant size or three little numbers on a scale, this book is for you.

the bookish mama, July 18, 2012 (view all comments by the bookish mama)
When I think about a dream vacation, I imagine being on a beach and being able to read to my heart's content. (I'm not much of a water person, but I like looking at it!) However, I am terrified to think about being out in the sun in a bikini or swimsuit, especially with my post-baby, a little more squishy, and a lot more wobbly body. That's why reading My Big Bottom Blessing was such a blessing to me this summer because God thinks I'm beautiful just the way I am!

I NEEDED this book this summer. Summertime means the temperature goes up and the clothes get smaller, which means that I need to show more skin if I want to stay cool and not be a sweaty mess all the time. I think one of the biggest things I wasn't expecting after having a baby was how much pregnancy, breastfeeding and being a new mom would change my body. I guess I was just hoping that it would go back to normal after some time, but I'm realizing that there will always be a soft pooch to my tummy because no matter how many crunches I do, it just ain't getting any tighter. Alongside all these changes has been the Enemy feeding me with endless, constant lies and frankly, I've been believing them.

What I loved about Cannon's book is that she told her story with truth and raw honesty. There was a section in the beginning about how she even dreaded going to family gatherings because she was the "fat cousin." This is one insecurity I have myself and it was so refreshing to see that I wasn't the only one who dreaded being the definitely-not-thin one at a big family reunion. Cannon spoke from the heart and poured our her soul onto these pages and I appreciate that because it made me realize that I am not alone. I am not the only one being pounded on daily by the lies of the Enemy and my own insecurities. I enjoyed reading about all the different voices in her head because they sound a lot like the ones I have my own head.

I devoured this book in a day and couldn't put it down once I got started. I think the only thing that was lacking was more practical steps towards believing that I am God's beautiful creation. I'm a girl that likes specific how-to's or things to do. I am proud to say that after reading this book that I am more apt to combat the negative voices in my head and fight back with the truth- I AM BEAUTIFUL JUST THE WAY I AM. :)

If you have similar insecurities like me and want some relief from the daily battles with the Enemy about your body, you should definitely check out My Big Bottom Blessing.
