I Heard This Little Scrawny Child Say He Was Too Fat

And Jesus said unto the Centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. Matthew 8:13

What is the media doing to children when you can hear a little scrawny child say he was too fat? How do we counter the effects of the media on children? It seems that they are bombarded by it on all sides and they seem to pick up on subtle messages in advertising that I am oblivious to.

What do we do to bolster the self-esteem of youth, so that they don't determine their self-worth by their clothing size? What do we do make sure that kids don't internalize adult conversations they over hear? I wish I had all the answers.

I found this video on You Tube that shows some of the impact that the media has on the self-perception of youth. If only we could have the youth of today and tomorrow focus on the the truths at the end of this enlightening video. This is definitely something worth continuing to be prayerful about. And Jesus said unto the Centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. Matthew 8:13


Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.

I have decided to include Weight Loss Tip Videos instead of the Healthy Tips I have been doing prior to this to provide a wide variety of tips for weight loss. See Disclaimer. I, personally, lost the weight through prayer and good nutrition, and do not promote any weight loss gimmicks. Debbie
