God’s Little Girls by Allie Berthold

God never intended for his daughters to struggle with food and body confidence like we do. He made our bodies beautiful, perfect in His image. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.[i] As little girls, we were blind to what the world had to say about our bodies and the bodies of the women we loved. We didn’t know that they were pressured to look a certain way. They were simply a place to explore the wonders of the world – a place to twirl and skip and laugh out loud. But as we ventured from the innocence of our youth the world began to tell us otherwise. It told us that the shape of our body reflects the level of our worth. That place of girlhood bliss we’ve ventured so far from is where God still intends for us to live, and to live abundantly; to live in freedom and confidence, content in the way our bodies have been made.
[i] Genesis 1:27
