Rae Lynn DeAngelis (Executive Director) I secretly lived in bondage to an eating disorder called bulimia for twenty-five years. Many times I tried to break free, but my resolve never lasted long. I felt like a prisoner in my own body. Precious years were exhausted as I battled to control my weight. Bulimia became part […]
This is the last time I will give-in to my eating disorder. I’ll get back on track tomorrow. GOD’S TRUTH: “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” (Mark 14:38) “But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way […]

Today’s Post By: Rae Lynn DeAngelis “Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.” (1 Chronicles 16:8) A few reminders of just how blessed we are in the United States: If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who won’t survive the week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation, you...
Today’s Post By: Rae Lynn DeAngelis “‘If you can’?’ said Jesus. ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.’” (Mark 9:23) One of the biggest lies of the enemy is you can’t do this. However, his cynicism is often cloaked in less obvious verbiage. It’s not worth fighting for. You’re not strong enough to see this thing through. You’re wasting your time. You don’t have what it takes. Through the enemy’s subliminal scorn and our own negative thoughts we begin...
This 13-week eating disorder support group program, which coincides with Kimberly Davidson’s book I’m Beautiful? Why Can’t I See It? is designed to help women find true and lasting healing from eating disorders and poor body-image. Many secular-based programs address the physical and psychological components of eating disorders but neglect a very important component—the spiritual. Just as Father, Son, and Spirit make up the whole of who God is, our mind, body, and spirit make up the whole of who God created us to be. Much like a three legged stool, neglecting to address any part of our make up leads to incomplete healing. This leader’s guide provides detailed information and tools to help you effectively lead a support group in your own setting.
“This support group leader’s guide is an awesome resource for leaders to own as they facilitate their group through the “I’m Beautiful? Why Can’t I See It?” material. It provides a clear and helpful weekly outline for each session. In the beginning pages of the book, the author provides beneficial tips on how to stay encouraged as a leader, engage participants, and how to create an environment conducive to authentic vulnerability. Additionally, the book includes weekly illustration ideas to make the content of the weekly reading assignments come alive for visual learners. In the back of the book, there is ample space for journaling and note taking. Overall, a great product.” K.B.
“Very detailed plans let you know exactly what points to cover and demonstrations to do for the group. Good leader tips as well in back of book.” S.M.
“Even though I have not had personal experience with eating disorders, both the text and the leader guide gave me enough information about eating disorders and their varied effects on women for me to feel equipped and comfortable facilitating a group of women through this healing ministry. The connection with Scripture is the “secret” to the program. If you love God’s Word and know its power for transformation. and if you love and care about women, I hope you will give I’m Beautiful … an opportunity to work in your life and in the lives of the women you love!!” ~M.B.S.

Coincides with Kimberly Davidson’s book: I’m Beautiful? Why Can’t I See It?
“This study has been one of the most effective tools in my continued recovery. It deals with many issues, from anger to nutrition, using the Bible as the basis for each and every chapter of the book. There are questions at the end of each lesson that will cause you to dig deeper into your heart for answers to those things which are holding you in bondage. This study will lead you to begin to see yourself as the wondrous work of art God Himself has created you to be. True healing begins with the heart and the true healer is God. Freedom comes through replacing the lies of Satan with the truth of God.” ~R.S.
“I don’t have enough words to describe how appreciate I am for this class. Years and years of therapy and thousandths and thousandths of dollars later have gotten me nowhere but this class has gotten me so far ahead to recovery.” ~T.P.
“Wonderful, much needed. Definitely deals with both eating disorders, and body image. Exposes the lies of satan and the world.” ~L.L.
“This class will allow you to grow spiritually and emotionally stronger accordingly to His Word. Also, God’s plan is for us to be in relationships that provide mutual help and assistance. As much as you may need others for help and friendship, they need you for the same reasons. In this class, spending time together, creating genuine friendships by sharing life like experiences will help bring out emotions to understand the reasons for your disorder. Brings highlight to what causes it and awareness!! Highly recommend!!!” ~S.G.
“I thought it was very helpful in realizing my eating disorder is more than just what I eat, but what is eating me.” ~S. W.
“I don’t struggle with an eating disorder, but I have struggled with body image – and Kimberly’s book & this study helped me SO very much! I embarked on a journey with a group of other women through Living in Truth Ministries, and I learned so much about myself and why I struggled with an unhealthy body image (since I was a little girl) – I got down to the root of the problem, which helped me deal with other issues I didn’t even realized I had! Ultimately, it was God who changed me and the way I think (replacing what the world told me and what I told myself with Scripture has made all the difference), but this study guide helped so much! Taking the class was definitely a turning point in helping me overcome insecurities and poor body image. I was 26 when I took the class, and I would recommend it for teens and beyond.” ~S.C.
