I've been involved with FINDINGbalance since it's inception. Not only am I a huge fan of the founder, Constance Rhodes, but the work that she's doing through her organization to impact lives is tremendous. She's endeavoring to provider leadership and answers for issues that are difficult to address, at best. FINDINGbalance has a reputation of being a high caliber organization and I couldn't agree with it more. You'll be hard pressed to find better content anywhere else.

Fb is incredible - especially Constance's commitment to excellence in every area of the organization. I know first hand how committed she is to using funds in the most efficient manner possible. She does not waste a dime and always puts others before herself. She has the highest integrity in all that she does and is fully committed to her faith in being the basis of all she produces through FINDINGbalance. Her website has so much depth - unlike any other I have seen. She has more than 600 free video clips, numerous articles, book reviews, everything you can think of. She is an excellent speaker, who is authentic, funny and a joy to listen to. I will continue giving to Fb, knowing that every penny is being put to good use.

I attended Hungry for Hope last June and have benefited from it tremendously. As an Eating Disorder victim, it was great to share experience with others and meet people who have fully recovered from this disease. More importantly, I was able to hear how God has helped them to fight this battle.

The Great!

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

Attended Hungery for Hope Conference in June 2010.

I first heard about Finding Balance approximately seven years ago. My coworker picked up *Life Inside the "Thin" Cage* for me at a conference, but I didn't think it applied to me since I'd struggled with a clinical eating disorder and thought I had left that behind me. However, as the years went by, I got older and started gaining weight, and I realized that the negative tapes from the eating disorder were still playing in the background. I mostly attributed this to a distorted body image, but as I've been leading a Finding Balance with Food study, I've realized that the negative tapes come from a variety of sources--including culture and other women. What's so revolutionary about Finding Balance is that it's about building balanced, healthy relationships--with food AND with other people. It's about surrounding yourself with fellow travelers who are real and honest and trying to live into the truth about who they are as whole people (not just bodies on parade). And, then, the other super important part that Finding Balance has been involved with is the True Campaign, and their line about the True-Shift is so crucial: to take the time we spend obsessing about our bodies and how we look, and to instead pour that energy and effort into empowering ourselves to accomplish our dreams and to help other people.

The Great!

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

the curriculum Finding Balance with Food, the on-demand videos on a range of topics on the FB site (including about cutting) and the podcasts as part of the True Campaign.

Ways to make it better...

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

focus on empowering women, NOT ONLY to live free of body obsessions in order to have happy, healthy lives, but also to heal emotionally in ALL our areas of woundedness so that we can go on to make a difference in the lives of other women in pain.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting the founder and catching her vision to help free women from body obsessions and then to make a shift to empower others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate and professional.

Ways to make it better...

I had better insight that this group is not just about subclinical eating disorders or life trapped with being too thin, but it's also about full-blown eating disorders, including emotional eating and binge eating and obesity-related issues.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding. If they had more funding they could gain more visibility and traffic to their website, helping hook people on the truth of where healing begins--and the purpose of healing (to empower ourselves and others).

In my opinion, this nonprofit stands out because it deals with personal issues related to image, consumption, and life habits. Because its approach focuses more on the causes than the effects of negative thought patterns, it provides deep answers to serious questions. Not only have I benefited from their free online service, but also get to tap into a real community that is exceptionally honest. While some nonprofits see valid problems in others or institutions, this one doesn't point fingers. That in itself breeds humility and true care, something our society really needs.

The Great!

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

my own life.

Met the Director, Constance Rhodes, through my daughter who has had emotional issues surrounding eating for many years. She is incredibly gifted at creating mutually supportive group activities and reaching out to those in need with a variety of excellent communication materials and activities. I would not hesitate to recommend her or FindingBalance to a family member or friend.

The Great!

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

receiving updates from the Director personally or on the very informative website weekly.
