We have all been impacted by the thief called comparison. Scrutiny from others can cut deep, and the scrutiny we put on ourselves sometimes even deeper. It robs us of our joy, and knocks the wind from our sails.

As Christians we are to find our identity in Christ, and yet the world presses in hard beckoning us to forget who we are.

My guest on the Podcast

Today my guest is Jennifer Tomasick, a dear long time friend, who my hubby and I know from working at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Jennifer is nearing her 5th decade and has gained some insight along the way, concerning how we view our bodies. She loves the Lord and has walked with Him through this journey of finding a healthy body image.

As a performer at Disneyland it was difficult to not compare your body to others
Dancing at The Golden Horseshoe at Disneyland Park

Getting hired as a professional Dancer at Disneyland was one of the joys of her life! On the down side being, “on display” in sometimes very unforgiving costumes can give the enemy an opportunity to mess with your mind.

Jennifer went on to get married to a fireman, and have two beautiful children, some of which she carried down the parade route in womb, creatively concealed under costumes!

Episode 21 Pt 2

Talking body image

We talk about the importance of redefining your why.

talk about hormones and how as we get older our bodies change how they respond, and how we need to shift our thinking as this happens. She shares very raw about her brain tumor, C-section and other medical issues which caused her to gain over 60 LBS.

It’s definitely been a journey she is real and raw about her high highs and her low lows, even contemplating suicide. She shares scripture that has helped her re focus and define her “why”.

Jennifer found comfort in her husbands love and support, but it's God's that matters.

Made in His image

Jennifer shares how seeking the approval of people or even your own perfectionism will always leave you empty. Christ is our King and created us in His image, He sees us as beautiful and loves us. This has lately been such a comfort. Psalm 45:11 is a go to scripture when the enemy tries to worm his way back into her mind.

So the King will greatly desire your beauty;Because He is your Lord, worship Him.

We are beautiful and loved, we can’t live in a state of comparing our bodies to those around us. Our reason for being fit can’t be, “just to be skinny”. Eventually that won’t be enough either. On the flip side not caring for ourselves can be equally as damaging.

Jennifer started a healthy living program that has truly helped her to refocus and not just get her body healthy but her mind and spirit too!

Did you know that even the most beautiful seemingly confident and “thin” girls still struggle.

For me it’s such a relief to see other women who are ahead of and even behind me in years being open and honest about their journey. You can’t judge a person emotional state by how they look on the outside. Let’s remember to uplift and encourage each-other, let’s walk closely with God and tell Him what we need and learn to see ourselves how He does. The enemy of our souls can then be crushed under our feet, and we can live joyfully and in community encouraging one another!
