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.

Finding Balance provides valuable resources and supports to their clients. The cost to participate in the program is well worth the support and access to counselors. The daily vitamin email is free to anyone that signs up and is a great reminder of truth.

This is a great organization serving a huge need in our culture!

I can't say enough about how much Constance and Finding Balance have impacted my recovery. I am so inspired by the wisdom and experience shared, and have recommended FB to so many others who are finding similar strength and deeper faith as a result of this wonderful organization. Praise God and all glory to Him for the work He is doing through Constance and Finding Balance!!

Lasting Freedom has been such a blessing to me! I have been embraced by the community which has enabled me to live a more transparent and vulnerable life. The weekly messages/videos are always so encouraging yet challenging to inspire me to continue to grow in my faith. The weekly groups have helped me to stay accountable as well as develop authentic and true relationships. This program means a lot to me and I am so glad I came across this organization. I hope others find this organization and experience as much freedom, hope, and change in their lives as I have in mine!

I cannot say enough positive things about Finding Balance. Prior to joining this group I had struggled with an eating disorder for more than 8 years and thought that I would always have "moderately recovered" symptoms. After just a few months of working with FindingBalance, I now have hope for a future in full recovery. Nothing can explain the changes that I have been able to make in my life thanks to this group.

I've struggled with a tenacious eating disorder for over 20 years (about half my life), and for most of that time have understood that my issues with body image, shame, control, and fear are spiritual in nature - that is, heal-able only by knowing who I am in Christ... my identity as a beloved child. I continue to struggle mightily with my E.D., despite knowing that God is mightier still - I have much distrust and mis-beliefs about God's nature to still work through, but FINDINGbalance has kept me on the path of truth. I have hope for recovery, however long it might take, because of FINDINGbalance and my participation in Lasting Freedom - the stories I hear from those who have recovered, the just-at-the-right-time encouragement from the webinar speakers, the prayers and fearless love of Jeanette and Constance... My life has definitely been touched in tangible and intangible ways, and I am incredibly grateful for this community.

Awesome! So happy to know that even as you continue struggling through your questions, your hope keeps you moving forward. God is not threatened by our questions, and I know he will be faithful as you continue pressing forward! Thank you for letting us be a part of that journey for you. - cr
