My Big Bottom Blessing by Teasi Cannon Review & Giveaway

From Amazon: One woman's hilarious, yet totally honest battle with body image exposes the secret that loving the girl in the mirror isn't about changing how you look, but about changing what you see. Teasi Cannon's lifelong struggle with weight loss not only made her hate her body, but destroyed her marriage and led to an emotional breakdown. Today she's happy about her bottom, not because the size has changed, but because her perspective has. Her funny, gut-honest insights will inspire millions of women of all ages with body image issues to embrace their value and beauty. They'll learn to silence their own inner critics, debunk self-sabotaging lies, and get spiritually and emotionally happy. Her book includes an in-depth book club or small group study guide.

My Big Bottom Blessing is a motivational Christian based story of Teasi and how she overcame how she felt about her looks.  I think almost every female has an issue with how they look and in retrospect, how they feel.  Teasi shows us how to change our perspective.  It's more about emotion than body image. 
My Big Bottom Blessing isn't preachy but is glimpses of Teasi's life and how it affected her as an adult.  She calls herself Fat Christian Woman and has many talks with God.  Each chapter ends with  a prayer, a Bible verse an a pep talk.  It also has discussion questions that can be shared in a small setting, perhaps a church or women's group.

I really enjoyed My Big Bottom Blessing.  I could relate to Teasi on many levels and appreciated her candor and emphathized with her struggles.  Well worth the read!!

  1. It’s been said that real change happens when we become aware of the negative self-talk in our heads, and replace it with positive messages. This book takes it a step further, offering an honest look at one woman’s struggles with weight and body image. But rather than just “thinking positive,” she became deeply aware of God’s love for her. Knowing she was God’s beloved made it possible for her to love herself. I know all women, regardless of size, will appreciate Teasi Cannon's honesty!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
