Why Modeling Healthy Body Image for Your Girl Matters

When your girl looks in the mirror, what is her physical response? Perhaps she grimaces saying something negative about what she sees. Did you know that now, as young as six years old, girls know to self-deprecate about their appearance?  

While we aren’t called to be prideful or hang our identity hat on physical appearance, we do reflect the image of our Creator. So how does your girl receive the gift of her physical body from God? 

Culture only knows how to address the surface of the negative body image epidemic in our girls. Christ-followers understand this goes beyond looks—this is a heart issue. Model a healthy self-image for your girl through positivity and gratefulness for your own body. Pass on to her a healthy legacy of self-image.
