Finding Balance is a rare organization because it is the only one like it. The community and hope it creates by the work it does, encouraging hope in the field of disordered eating and eating disorders is like no other. With the wonderful leadership and passion of Constance Rhodes to the amazing qualified board members and volunteers. Fb is helping thousands of women break free...not by just words, but from community, resources, relationships, books and curriculum, and life changing conferences. I can't say enough of the enormous capacity of change Fb has made and will continue to make in thousands of peoples lives who are hurting. What a gift finding balance is.

FINDINGbalance is a unique organization with unique content; there is nothing else out there like FINDINGbalance. Constance Rhodes' "daily vitamins" are just one example of daily encouragement and acknowledgment of God's perspective on this issue that are truly effective. I wish I had something like this group when I was going through the worst of my eating disorder, but I have to be constantly reminded of God's truths to continue to live free. I appreciate that FINDINGbalance's core values consist of balance, no matter what the eating issue. In my opinion, this is the only way to live free.
I found FINDINGbalance through a friend and attended Hungry For Hope this year, which is FINDINGbalance's annual conference, and it gave me fuel to keep going. It allowed me to meet others who desire community and transparency on this issue, which is the only way it can be conquered. Constance Rhodes, the founder of FINDINGbalance, is one of the most spirit-filled, intentional people I have ever met, and I look up to her as a leader, woman, entrepreneur, and friend.

I first came across FindingBalance about 2 years ago and have had the wonderful opportunity of getting involved through facilitating a group. I have been amazed at the dedication and passion Constance has put into this organization in addition to her efforts at communicating the importance of seeking health and healing in community. I greatly value the weight FB places on community and the importance of sharing our stories with one another as part of our journey toward healing. FB is truly a place to receive truth and find companionship for any individual seeking support!

I met Constance Rhodes through Hungry for Hope 2010; she has been a source of great encouragement for me, and has taught me what true healing looks like. Constance walks the talk. She is honest and real, and fully dedicated to serving others. Her heart's cry is to see the disordered eater set free. And she humbly and faithfully pursues this vision, thinking nothing of herself. It is with great honor and passion that I recommend FINDINGbalance to all those looking for a non-profit that lives up to its name.

I connected with FindingBalance a little over a year ago. I had the honor in working along side them as a volunteer in June of this past year with Hungry For Hope. They trutly are so very organized and very professional, with great marketing skills, administration skills and relational skills as well. They also have great passion that overflows in serveing those who struggle personally, along with professionals working with those who struggle, in all areas of eating dissorders, body image, etc.

I have found that working with them, although I was a volenteer, they made me feel part of their team from the moment we connected. There was great encouragment, and still is, along with great direction and wonderful follow up.

They made the whole experience fun and I am trutly blessed to know them as a non-profit as well as individuals. I will be joining them agian this year as a volenteer and look forward to it!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

When I discovered FINDINGbalance, I realized founder Constance Rhodes and I had similar passions for helping free & empower women in the areas of eating & body image. I knew this was an organization with which I wanted to be involved & serve! I began attending the Fb Gatherings Constance led at the time in Franklin TN, and seeing first-hand the powerful positive impact FINDINGbalance has on women in various stages of recovery from a wide range of eating & body image issues. The application of spiritual Truths has great value for all of us, wherever we are on our journey, as well as the freedom of experiencing genuine, transparent fellowship with other women. When Fb created its "webcast" tools to enable Gatherings around the country & around the world, I was thrilled to host a group here in Brentwood TN. Although my own walk is far from perfect, it is one of my greatest joys to come alongside Constance & the awesome work Fb is doing, and help empower & encourage women of all ages right here in my community. Thank you, FINDINGbalance!!!

The Great!

Strengthening & encouraging me in my own journey, breaking free from perfectionism & people-pleasing! It's a joy to see the enlightenment & encouragement that the participants of our Brentwood Fb Gathering take away from each week's message & discussion.

As a former anorexic, I understand extremes. For Type-A personalities, it's so easy to be extreme, to swerve from starving to over-eating, and I understand the fear which drives both. FINDINGbalance is all about removing that unhealthy fear, and establishing peace. Founded by someone who understands the swinging pendulum of an eating disorder, Fb strives to help former disordered eaters believe in love--perfect love--so that fear might be driven away, and balance restored, through food, exercise, and relationships. I can testify to the power of this organization, and to the need for its message to reach America's seven million women and one million men battling an eating disorder.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own life, as a former disordered eater. It's helped me realize the importance of establishing balance so I might lead my own children into a lifestyle of freedom and love.

Finding Balance has been a God send! I was directed to Finding Balance last summer, when I was searching for curriculum to use for the new support group that I was starting in the fall. After one, very detailed long distance conversation with Constance, I was convinced that the Finding Balance Gathering Curriculum was going to meet my needs. I have used the Gathering format for every meeting, and it continues to encourage and inspire the young women who come, seeking hope and healing from their eating and body image issues.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Finding Balance is the first site that I refer people to, when they are seeking information on eating and body image issues. It is concise and thorough, and covers not only the physical, but the emotional and spiritual elements affected by these issues.
