On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I’m chatting with Dr. Alexandria Ford about body image. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this every week during our series on living in light of redemption, but let me just say, if you’re struggling with body image--solidarity! I’ve been there. In this episode, Alex helps us understand how the whole person matters to God, that he has created us in his image, and that he has created every aspect of our being with a purpose. This conversation really helped me understand that recognizing the importance of human embodiment is necessary in order to fully understand who God has created us to be, especially when it comes to challenging topics, such as body image.
