A new view of the true you: a spiritual approach to body image

Rebecca Odegaard

In this Q&A chat, Rebecca Odegaard, a teacher and practitioner of Christian Science, explains how a deeper understanding of your relationship to God can help you overcome challenges of dieting, physical activity and self-image.

Using examples from her own experience overcoming an eating disorder and later helping her daughter overcome one, Rebecca answers questions from site visitors about anorexia, allergies, and exercise, and explores how God's sustaining, nurturing care provides all the spiritual nourishment we need to see ourselves as complete, perfect, and loved.
