Alive in Christ ~ A Weekend Renewal

Step off the scale and into the life Christ has for you!

**a mindset reset for women striving to break free from weight obsession and renew their identity in Christ**

Learn to live freely as a woman of God through teachings, individual and group reflections, illustrated Bible journaling, and much more! 

God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ - by grace you have been saved.
~Ephesians 2:4-5

Do you look in the mirror and cringe at what you see there? Do you scrutinize your flaws, hoping you can wish them away? Do you step on the scale just to be overcome with disappointment and feelings of failure and hopelessness? Do you stumble through diet after diet attempting to get to the “right” weight? Are you consumed by counting, measuring, tracking, and starting over again the next day? Is your identity wrapped up in your food decisions, losing weight, being thin, and having the “perfect” body shape?

Have you become distant from God, frustrated with Him because you can’t lose weight? Do you value your size, weight, and shape more than you value your relationship with Christ?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ve come to the right place!


Alive in Christ ~ A Weekend Renewal is designed to help you break free from weight obsession and renew your identity in Christ. You’ll learn to live freely as a woman of God through teachings, individual and group reflections, illustrated Bible journaling, and much more! You will gain confidence in who you are and walk as a woman of God without the burden of dieting and body dissatisfaction mounting on your shoulders daily!
