My best friend, Emily, tells the story of her teacher’s battle(s!) with cancer through art—a must watch!
“Let God chisel,” said the woman. “Let God make you and mold you.” Because he has an image of you that is probably far better than you could ever imagine.
“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free,” Michelangelo said about one of his creations. It is the same for us. At the hands of the sculptor, we can rise out of the rock, free to become the masterpiece he already sees within.

Tell me about the Healthy Is The New Skinny campaign. Why did you start it?
Healthy Is The New Skinny is not about size—it’s a change in our mindset. Girls are extremely critical of their own bodies and how it needs to be changed in order to be more “perfect.” Most of the concern revolves around weight and size: If you complement a girl, you say, “OMG you look so skinny”; girls eat or don’t eat with the goal of being “skinny”; girls work out with the goal of being “skinny.” This mentality is extremely dangerous, and Healthy Is The New Skinny is challenging not only how the media portrays beauty, but also our own motives and mindset. If we can do things in our life to be healthy instead of skinny, we will be much more successful and happier than chasing an unrealistic goal. Girls are hurting themselves in the pursuit of beauty, and Healthy Is The New Skinny is taking a different approach to an industry that consists of two extremes. We think healthy bodies are beautiful bodies and that having a healthy body image means treating your body right!
