Jess’s newest book, Tired of Being Tired, just came out on April 9th, but since Summer is upon us, we thought this would be a good time to bring out Jess’s last book, Breaking Free from Body Shame.  If you find yourself thinking you have to jump on a new fitness challenge, change your diet, or find yourself wanting to avoid the community pool for the next few months, this episode is for you. In this episode, we brought in our friend and team member, Katie Smith, to share her story of body shame + healing. You’ll hear Jess and Katie share openly and honestly about their past experiences, what they learned, how the Lord was able to carry them through, and how this one thing remains true: YOUR BODY IS GOOD. This is for the woman who has never felt free, for the new mom dealing with a body she doesn’t recognize, and/or the woman who thought she’d conquered this issue, but it’s still cropping up.  If you have a body and want to live free, this episode is for you.
