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.

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.

My review is based on the changes seen in my daughter through HER interaction with Finding Balance. All her life, she's had issues related to eating...weight ups and downs, diets, exercise,various programs, with the end result being even MORE issues and endless frustrations. Finally, FINALLY, there's been a change - in her attitude! At long last, she is giving herself a break - allowing herself the chance to explore self-acceptance and self-love. As her mom, I am so thankful. She is still not what she longs to be - but she's learning to love who she is right now. I am so grateful to Finding Balance for helping my child when I could not.

The Finding Balance team looks squarely at the "warped mirrors" of the disordered eating mind-set, the existing eating disorder labels, and the current eating disorder industry as a whole. Through their extensive, interactive and professionally resourced website -- together with their strategic use of social media and a variety of teaching tools -- everyone impacted by eating disorders is presented with a clear "mirror of truth" about the entire eating disorder spectrum. This is not only helpful for the struggling individual but also for the lay-counselor or prominent professional. Finding Balance collaborates with existing organizations of all types. Because of its willingness to team with other organizations (rather than compete against them), Finding Balance is able to go where no other eating disorder organization has gone before in bringing healing to the hurting. I find mentorship in Finding Balance, as I use their wonderful resources and curricula in empowering individuals and groups (specifically those in faith-based leadership roles) to learn and unite, and to extend hope and support to those struggling with eating disorders within their communities. Constance and her team have already done the work. Thanks to Finding Balance, you don't have to have lots of fancy letters after your name to provide cutting-edge, professional, and authentic support to others!

Finding Balance's outstanding resources and tools empower me to help others find freedom from disordered eating and thinking. Never seeing "status quo" or "superficial" in Finding Balance's character = refreshing, energizing, & PRICELESS!

I've had the privilege of seeing Finding Balance begin as one person's passion and dream and then grow to where it is now. It is a very thoughtful, professional organization that seeks to help people live their lives well and fully. Constance and the Finding Balance team help people recognize and talk about issues that society often wants us to hide. In doing so, Fb has given so many of us new hope!

Constance and the FindingBalance team are a driving force for change in an arena that is too often overlooked. They are dealing with core identity issues that are devastating the true beauty of women and men in our culture. Fb is not only crying out for us to notice the issue, but is bringing a bright light into these dark places; a message of hope that goes beyond body wellness and touches the soul. Fb gets people in touch with the inherent beauty that God puts in His children; and gives them a new mirror with which to see their real reflection.

The Great!

I have personally been profoundly encouraged by this ministry. The self obsessed eating/body image and behaviors span the gap of over skinny, exercised, over-eating and over weight. Fb gets to the shame that drives it all and offers hope and encouragment.
