American women are regularly feeling the pressure to lose weight, dress more fashionably and change their appearance in any way they can, and Christian women are not exempt from this burden. There are likely many women among us who are experiencing grief and pain at this very moment due to struggles with body image.
So how should a believer respond when she finds herself insecure about her appearance? How can we as women encourage and disciple other women as they reveal their secret body image struggles with us?
At this Katalyst event, Amy Larson will teach women how to dump the anxiety an image-obsessed society often places on our shoulders. You will also learn about how the Bible defines beauty and identity. Throughout the event, multiple women in the church will be sharing their testimonies about how God has been at work through their own insecurities to redefine them as a woman beautiful in the sight of God.
Katalyst is a free event for teen and adult women that includes a potluck brunch. You are encouraged to bring a friend and a breakfast item to share. There is no childcare provided, but, if you are unable to find childcare on your own, you are welcome to bring your children to Katalyst.
