FINDINGBalance is about more than just food/weight issues - it's about living life in a God-drenched manner. I don't have to be who culture says I do. The daily emails strengthen and encourage me. They are a bit of joy (and sometimes challenge) in my day. I'm so excited to be becoming more like Jesus and learning to love myself more (as I am). What a blessed ministry!

"Daily Vitamin" has been an encouragement to me as I reframe my thoughts on healthy lifestyle choices, as well as attititude. The message linked to the verse is often timely for my current thoughts. I appreciate the work done by Constance Rhodes and her team at FINDINGbalance. As a healthcare professional, I appreciate having a site and organization to which I can refer women and adolescents who are struggling in the area of their thoughts on eating. It has been a source of encouragement to them as well.

Findingbalance is an amazing resource for people searching for help in the realm of food and body image issues. They offer talks you can listen to that inspire hope, a community of fellow strugglers, and reliable resources of people who are well trained in the field.

Findingbalance gave me a good, healthy look at myself, my eating (or non-eating) habits and provided ways for me grow to be a healthier person in this area of my life.

My wife has been on the receiving end of this program for the last seven months and she is a changed woman. She has a place to turn to and tools to use 24 hours a day that she didn't have before. Her lasting freedom on-line small group has given her friendships with near immediate depth and bonding - people going through exactly what she struggles with. Her attitude is so different than seven months ago. She is finding balance in her life and spiritual walk and it is bringing our whole family back together. I love this organization.

I found FINDINGbalance through research for my blog which also focuses on faith-based body image. I really liked how unique a resource it is. Having several formats--books, Bible Studies, in-person and on line groups, blogs, and events have the capacity to reach so many people. I really felt that Fb reaches a group of people often left behind in the big recovery picture and also gives a Christian perspective that is often lacking in the discussion of body image. I have since read the book by the founder and attended a FINDINGbalance event that was life changing for me and others who attended. In my own blogging and mentoring, I have referred many people to this resource. Another great thing about Fb is that the founder and board always come up with new ways to reach out and make a difference. The various events and campaigns reach worldwide.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I am not sure what I would change. I think that Fb does a great job of updating their information, provides a variety of formats, communicates and markets well, and utilizes their volunteers very effectively.

FindingBalance is an organization that seeks to shed light upon the destruction of food issues; bringing to the world's awareness that disordered eating is a real issue that plagues women and men everywhere. The resources found through FindingBalance are professional, helpful, encouraging, and rooted in Truth, which sets FindingBalance apart from other resources out there. It it critical that many people learn about the mission and phiolosophy of FindingBalance, as it truly carries the ability to lead others into deeper freedom from food issues.
