Deep down, many Catholic women struggle to accept that they are made in the image of God. In a broken world filled with lies about women’s physical beauty, they have a hard time seeing themselves as beautiful and hand-crafted by God.

See Yourself as God Does: Understanding Holy Body Image Through Catholic Scripture helps Catholic women encounter the truth about holy body image and regain a reverence for God’s gift of their bodies.

Through her personal experience, St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, Scripture, and more, author Shannon Whitmore reveals to Catholic women how God sees their bodies. And in turn, Catholic women will discover their identity as a masterpiece of God and how to build holy body image as Catholics.

Women of all ages will discover truths about:

  • How to find healing when body image is a struggle
  • Practical exercises that help you to see your body as God’s masterpiece
  • What Scripture and St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body have to say about the goodness and beauty of your body
  • How knowledge of what your body was made for can improve the way you see yourself
  • Ways to grow in love and appreciation for the body God gave you

Featuring practical exercises from licensed psychologist Julie Matsen, PhD, as well as thought-provoking questions perfect for personal reflection or small group discussion, this is a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation in light of the truth and beauty of Catholic teaching about the gift of our physical bodies.
