book cover Why is it so difficult to feel good about ourselves? There are times when most, if not all of us, have felt miserable about our bodies—no matter what the number on the scale tells us.

In response to her book Running with Angels, bestselling author Pamela H. Hansen received thousands of letters and e-mails from people struggling with issues of body image and self-worth. This new book draws upon those stories and confronts society’s obsession with the perfect body, examining the destructive belief that physical appearance determines worth.

This spiritually sound approach to developing a healthy body image will change the way you think about yourself and others. Better yet, it will provide the hope that change is possible.

book cover On a beautiful April morning in 2001, Pamela Hansen decided to do something she hadn't done for a very long time. She took a walk. That first walk, which lasted just 10 minutes, was the beginning of an amazing journey that ultimately led to a 100-pound weight loss (without surgery or pills) and the fulfillment of her dream to run a marathon-all in just over one year.

In Running with Angels, Pam shares an honest and open portrayal of both her struggles and success with weight loss, using a marathon race as a metaphor for facing life's challenges. She candidly discusses the pain of living life as an obese person and the hopelessness that accompanies it. More importantly, she offers practical suggestions for anyone trying to reach a goal, particularly a goal of weight loss, and shows how small steps over time can help you realize your dreams.
