The Lasting Freedom program (part of Finding Balance) has made a remarkable difference in my life. I had been searching for help from eating disorder thoughts and behaviours for over two years when I found and decided to join Lasting Freedom. I have not regretted it for one minute! I have continued on with the program each session since I started with them in July 2015. This is the first support program that has shown me that there is hope of recovery from an eating disorder. Previous to this, I felt alone, hopeless and helpless. Lasting Freedom takes a different approach. This program has made me realize that I am not alone. There are many adult woman diagnosed with eating disorders. Also, it has helped me to realize that I am not hopeless. There is always hope because of Jesus! Help is there. Help is available to those who are searching for it. I feel valued and loved. I feel like I matter. I am thankful for this program and the women who have worked hard to create it and keep it going. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is feeling trapped inside of an eating disorder.

I am so very grateful that God led me to Finding Balance. I had been struggling with my eating disorder for years. Periods of Recovery and then periods of relapse. I have been in Recovery successfully from addictions for 29 years. My personal struggles with my overeating have been longstanding. I just could not seem to get recovery with my overeating - I needed something more for the Eating Disorder. I appreciate all the people and programs that have given me support. However, I am finding and developing such a sustaining relationship with God thru a woman's program called Lasting Freedom. Finding Balance has such dedicated facilitators and many of them with there own personal recovery from an Eating Disorder. God Bless all the staff. Maggie/AZ

The Daily Vitamin speaks the Truth of Jesus to me every day. It's like He knows just what I need to hear and remember and the DV is His affirming His Presence in my life. God uses Constance and her findingbalance team to know how to be active in faith in Jesus, encourages us to take the "next right step" in faith and away from our unhealthy behaviors and thoughts. I love love love this devotional and all that findingbalance continues to do to reach us with unhealthy eating and body image issues.

Finding balance is one of the greatest blessings in my daily life! Not only are their daily emails full of scripture and encouragement, but their website is also full of resources for those struggling with body image and eating issues- and for those just wanting to learn more about finding a healthy balance with those things! I have also been blessed to attend Hungry for hope which was truly life changing for me in my eating disorder recovery and in my relationship with God. As a nutrition graduate studying to become a registered dietitian, Finding Balance stands for everything that I want to incorporate into my practice- most importantly that GOD- not food or our bodies- is the one worthy of our worship! Thank you for continuing the great work!

Finding Balance and Lasting Freedom came into my life at a point when I felt stuck in my eating disorder recovery. With weekly group meetings, online support, and encouragement from staff and mentors, I am finally experiencing freedom from eating issues. This is not a diet plan, but true, lasting change. Because of Lasting Freedom, I am hopeful that I can move on from an eating disorder and live out the calling and purposes that God has created me for!

This website has been a lifesaver for me. The daily inspirational emails are often just what I needed to reflect on to face down the challenges of my eating disorder and help me deepen my faith and sense if connection to God.

I came to FINDINGbalance desperate for help - and I have had my world turned around by the work that they do. It's one thing to be loved by people you know, but when people you've never really met before go out of their way to help you and love you back to life, it's something very special. The work that the team at FINDINGbalance do is excellent, and done with great care for each individual. There is space for everyone's voice to be heard and discovered, which is especially important in FINDINGbalance's line of work. I've already started to keep my eyes open around me for others who could benefit from this nonprofit as much as I have because I know they'll find great enrichment and Truth to change them from the inside out.

God has used the work of FINDINGbalance over the course of the past nine years of my life to help teach, guide, reassure, encourage and help to know that I am not alone in the battle of working through an eating disorder. They provide the best resources and information out there in this field today and do so from a solid Christian perspective. FINDINGbalance has always responded to me personally when reaching out with questions or for help or information. I am truly grateful for this organization and highly recommend them to anyone, whether Christian or of any background, seeking more support, resources and encouragement for dealing with eating and body image issues.

As someone who's been struggling with food my whole life, and who has tried every angle of correcting behavior and dieting, Constance writes ideas and perspective that I've never even thought about before. Finally, I realize its not me who has to do anything, just let God do the work in me and everything else falls into place.
