Author Anne Cumings recalls growing up in a culture that scrutinized her body as a source of weakness and sin. Her church warned of slippery slides into debauchery, and modern culture taught her that she must look a certain way to be attractive, acceptable, even lovable--something to which most women will relate. Now, equipped with a body-positive mindset, she has written an engaging and uplifting Lenten study. From Upper Room Books, My Body Is Good: Embracing Body Positivity and Giving Up Diet Culture for Lent guides readers through a Lenten season of celebrating their bodies. Anne's experiences as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and as an ordained United Methodist pastor allow her to integrate mental health best practices with spiritual formation strategies, providing a wholistic approach to deepening our relationships with our bodies, with each other and with God.
