My Big Bottom Blessing Review and book giveaway
In a society that focuses so much on outer beauty it was refreshing to read this book by Teasi Cannon about body image and self-esteem. Teasi goes through her emotional struggles that led to loving not just the body God blessed her with, but also led to loving her life.  She shares humorous stories that many women can relate to, but also shares the breakthroughs she had that helped her build her self esteem.  She struggled throughout her life with low self esteem, but now lives a joyous life.

This book solely looks at the emotional/spiritual side of healing in order to accept the body you've been blessed with.  It strays from the typical sports nutrition books that I've been reading, but it was good to be able to confirm many of the things I've learned throughout the years.  Anyone who has struggled (or is currently struggling) with low self esteem, body image, or self image will most likely gain something from this book.

About the author:
Teasi (pronounced Tee See) is married to her best friend, Bill Cannon, and they have three awesome children: Carli, Ben, and Sam. Teasi has a master’s degree in pastoral counseling from Liberty Theological Seminary, and is a sought-after speaker who loves to help women remember who they are in Christ.

I was given this book in exchange for my honest review.

*I was also given a copy of this book to give away!  So, if you would like a copy of this book please leave a comment.  A winner will be picked at random by the end of the week. 

In the meantime, stay tuned for a guest blog post from this author in a day or so.


  1. We could all need a little self esteem boost now and then. For me, it's closer to now! The big 30 is mere months away...

  2. I enjoyed this book as well, because of her unique perspective on silencing those negative voices in our heads. Rather than just “thinking positive,” she focused on becoming deeply aware of God’s love for her. Knowing she was God’s beloved made it possible for her to love herself.

    1. Yes, I agree, that was a great part of her book!

  3. Thanks for introducing this book & author Angie! I look forward to reading her insights. :D
