Synopses & Reviews
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.

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.
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.
Regardless of what you weigh or the crazy diets you may have tried, My Big Bottom Blessing will set you free!
If you are tired of being defined by your pant size or three little numbers on a scale, this book is for you.
