Images of His Beauty
This is a 10-week support group for women 18 and over who have struggled with self-defeating thoughts about their body image or eating disorder tendencies. Today’s women must deal with a culture that says we must have perfect bodies. Join the group to examine what the Bible says about your true identity in Christ.
Young women today are faced with a barrage of worldly standards and ideas that set them up for failure and discouragement. The image of a woman is distorted by false ideas. For example, women compare themselves to other women and believe they fall short, especially when it comes to body image. As a result, a young woman may embark on a journey into a fantasy world of “perfect bodies” and end up making unhealthy choices that can lead to self destruction. An eating disorder is often the result.
Unfortunately women usually suffer alone, believing the lies of worldly standards. IOHB wants to help break the silence and isolation. This group is led by adult lay Christian women, who offer support and encouragement with devotionals, group discussions, and prayer support. The group provides a safe and confidential environment where women are heard, cared for, and the love of Christ is manifested.
As a church body, please pray for these young women who join us each week. We have much to gain from each other. Pray that it will be a time of laughter, support, and that ultimately each young woman comes away with a renewed joy for life—by grasping the truth of the Image of His Beauty.
