I have been a Christian therapist for more than 27 years and I have worked with many women over the years with eating disorders and I am continuing to work through my own disordered eating issues. When I found Finding Balance's curriculum five years ago I was blown away by how relavant and Christ centered the materials were. I came to a new understanding of how profound my distorted self-view was and how closely linked it was to my disordered eating that started in my early formative years.
Constance opened me up to exploring my own unhealthy patterns and how I was helping others but not uncovering my own shame, and lies that I had hidden deep within. I felt like God did a surgery of sorts on me that cut below the mask I was wearing that I didn't even know I had on.
As I led women through the curriculum I saw how impacted they were by the truth within the Finding Balance message and more importantly God's truth arising out of it all.
When Constance asked me to join the Board of Finding Balance I was more than thrilled to say YES because I believe in the message of helping people Heal from the inside out and to walk in Freedom. I feel passionate about getting this message out to a much larger audience and therefore I volunteer a geat deal of time to helping this organization grow and flourish for the Glory of God.
I would definitely endorse this organization and give it five star rating.

I would like Finding Balance offer online support for both the Gathering Leaders and the people we serve. I would also like to Finding Balance to shorten the curriculum from 13 weeks to about six or have it broken down into two six week studies given the busyness of individuals and their fear of long commitments. It could be offered in a level one, level two format. I would also like to see the Gathering leaders go through a certification process to augment the quality of care provided.

I was blown away when I saw the effect FindingBalance and it's message had at a Girls of Grace event on a Saturday in the autumn of 2012. Roughly 3,000 girls and their mothers were taught, encouraged and inspired about very difficult topics facing all young women. While FindingBalance's scope reaches beyond young women, this particular event truly revealed to me the impact this nonprofit can have on an individual's life.

I knew very little about FINDINGbalance when I sent in my resume, but when I met Constance Rhodes, she was somebody I knew I could trust with my story. Being in business has taught me that any business is only as effective as its leader. Constance is the founder and the energy of FINDINGbalane, but she has also made it a team approach, and everyone around her feels her passion and energy for this work. It's contagious and inspiring. The depth of the team is so evident in the website and the people supporting FINDINGbalance. The content on the website is comprehensive and relevant. I am grateful to work with them.

The Great!

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

Education about eating disorders and how I can apply what I'm learning to balancing my own life.
