All bodies are good bodies -- Your today body is good -- "Fat" is not a bad word -- It's okay to be fat -- You have the right to take up space -- You can stop shrinking yourself -- Your body is a storyteller -- Curiosity is your body's friend -- Your body is your home -- Your body is beautiful and complex -- Your health is not determined by your size -- The world needs more of you
Too often, fatness has been viewed as a moral failing. Fat Christian women in particular are shamed and marginalized by the message that they are failing God because they can't change their bodies. More of You will challenge that status quo, teaching readers to resist the shame and guilt that is pressed onto them by the world and instead to embrace their bodies, take up space, and learn to navigate the world in ways that allow them to flourish
