I am in maintenance/lose a few pounds/tone up mode. I've always had self-image issues. While I still am grossed out by my (nude) body, I have learned to appreciate how it looks in clothes...most likely from doing all my fashion blogging. (Check the blog out! Link is posted below!)

(Old)
I was 149 pounds when I entered a VERY emotionally (and physically) abusive relationship in 2006. During the following three years, I battled anorexia (as a direct result of him...) I didn't think I was too skinny, I actually enjoyed that weight, but I was also eating under 500 calories a day, and knew it was unhealthy.


I still have TONS of body image issues, which are SLOWLY getting a little better. I do, however, feel so much happier, exercising and eating healthily.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." - Philippians 4:13

I LOVE hiking and taking walks.

I some day plan to attend seminary and hopefully graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Christian Counseling.

I would love to use this degree with long-tern prison inmates that are facing release.

I have a sweet tooth bigger than anyone I've ever met. (I can eat half the bag of cake mix podwer in one sitting...just the powder... )

My hero/role model is Daniel (aka Daniel and the Lion's Den.)


I LOVE clothes and shoes.


I LOVE wedding planning.

I was a gymnast for most of my life...I miss it with a passion, but my step-daughter seems to love it, so I am living vicariously through her!

Brought to you by the CML team
These lyrics sung by Hope's Call are powerful. I hope they encourage you this week.

You Are Loved

Have you ever felt the Father's love
As He holds you in His arms
When you start to say I'm sorry
He says you've done nothing wrong
Have you failed to meet the standards
That you thought you should attain
Only to hear Him call your name, saying

Chorus:
You are loved beyond your failures
You are loved beyond your past
The hope that you've imagined
Is now reality at last
You are loved with no conditions
You are loved with no remorse
The scars of your forgiveness
Are engraved upon the Lord
You are loved

Verse 2:
Have you seen your life be torn apart
By things you could not help
Until you finally reached the point
Where you could only blame yourself
Have you laid your head to sleep
And think you'll always be alone
Then awaken to His voice calling you home, He says
(repeat chorus)

Remember to stop by the team page and say hello.

These lyrics sung by Crossway have ministered to me time and time again. I hope you can draw strength and inspiration from them also :

When I Hear the Thunder

Sometimes at night I cry myself to sleep
After everybody else has gone to bed
Knowing once again I've gotten in too deep
And the waters will soon be above my head
And I beg of you to change the world around me
So tomorrow won't be looking quite so dim
And I awake to the waters deep enough to drown me
But through it all you taught me how to swim
Chorus:
And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under
I remember you're the lifter of my head
You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances
But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.

There are times I can't help feeling lost
Like a ship drifting on the open sea
And the wind and waves leave me pitched and tossed
And a storm begins to build inside of me
And I beg of you to change the world around me
As fear and faith are fighting for control
Amid the raging waters swirling all around me
You've become the anchor for my soul
Chorus:
And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under
I remember you're the lifter of my head
You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances
But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.

MAtthew West has an inspiring song called "My Name Is" Here are some of the lyrics to help you along in this journey
"Hello, My Name Is"

Hello, my name is regret
Iím pretty sure we have met
Every single day of your life
Iím the whisper inside
That wonít let you forget

Hello, my name is defeat
I know you recognize me
Just when you think you can win
Iíll drag you right back down again
ĎTil youíve lost all belief

Oh, these are the voices. Oh, these are the lies
And I have believed them for the very last time

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
Iíve been saved, Iíve been changed, I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King


I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven itís true
Just take a look at my life

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed, I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

What love the Father has lavished upon us that we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King



Always remember WHo you are and that YOU are worth all of the hard work you are putting into this. I also believe in YOU.
Ruthie
