~I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.~
Fearfully (in this context) definition
1. Full of awe or reverence
God’s works are wonderful, which means our bodies are excellent, great, and marvelous! So go on and post your favorite things about your body!
1) My long, thick red hair

1) My chocolate brown eyes
Thank you for posting this! Sometimes I get thinking so much about what’s wrong with my body that I forget about the cool stuff. Thanks for making me think about it and come up with a list. 🙂

1) My face (especially my profile).
I couldn’t help but feel like I was bragging about myself when I put these down, but then I realized that maybe that was ok. I was glad that I could come up with 5 things that I loved about myself!

1. My long dark eyelashes.
After three I had to think about it really hard. It’s sad because that is all I can come up with.

Well, here goes:
1. My wavy red hair, no doubt
I don’t have a flat stomach, and I guess I could be considered slightly thick, and I’m pale as flip haha, and I’ve got the smallest boobs you can find a bra for, and my smile always looks fake in pictures, and I’ve got stretch marks and a little cellulite on my legs, but that’s okay because I’m not perfect and I never will be. My body’s healthy and can do great things, so I guess I can celebrate 🙂

Nate~ Remember Christ created you! It’s OK to like yourself. It’s just not OK to think you’re above someone else 🙂 I think it honors God when we find things we love about ourselves, because it means we recognize His amazing work.

@ktuck22, I also have the smallest boobs you can find for a bra. You aren’t the only one out there. 😉
1. My height. (I love being the tallest girl around. :))
It might sound like I’m bragging but I’ve never had much of an issue with my body. The main thing I dislike is how my back slopes a little bit. And how I have a lot of moles on me and quite a bit of hair all over my body. But other than that, I like my body most days. Obviously there are days when I feel ugly, or gross. But I try to stay positive. America’s body image message sucks and I wasn’t exposed to it a whole lot until later so I didn’t really pay attention to my body until I was about 14.

I want to say that this inspired me by how much difficulty I had coming up with my last two and am putting effort into gaining self confidence. I am learnings that if someones treated my friends the was I treat my self I would be really mad, and I don’t want to be this vain, I want to help others.
