"My Big Bottom Blessing" by Teasi Cannon

Weight management seems to be a problem for many people. What do we see when we look into mirrors or windows? What does God want us to see? In her new book, Teasi Cannon wants to "see" with new eyes - God's eyes.

Each chapter in this book contains invaluable information for leading a more healthy lifestyle. With humor and tact, Teasi makes her points, then ends with probing questions for each reader. What you get from it is up to you. The point is to be honest with ourselves, find the problem areas, then let God help us solve the problems. The stories and Scriptures will enable each person to find that honesty and see the direct relationship between healthy spiritual and physical lives. Are you in need of encouragement and strength to fight your daily battles, including that of weight? The encouragement in this book goes a long way to getting you to see yourself through God's eyes; a person to be loved, a person who is loved.

I honestly thought this book would be more about dieting and exercise than I found it to be. The wonderful illustrations and Scriptures encouraged me into a closer walk with God, through which the healthier life will come. My endeavors to stop the yo-yo dieting and improve my body image were in vain when done alone. This book is work, but work worth doing. It's good to know that I don't have to do it alone. I enjoyed the book, and recommend it to readers everywhere. I received my free copy from Handlebar Publishing for an honest review.


  1. Great review of a fabulous book! It’s been said that real change happens when we become aware of the negative self-talk in our heads, and replace it with positive messages. This book takes it a step further, offering an honest look at one woman’s struggles with weight and body image. But rather than just “thinking positive,” she became deeply aware of God’s love for her. Knowing she was God’s beloved made it possible for her to love herself.

  2. Thanks, Keri. I love the thoughts you added. =)
