I teach women how to work with God to transform their lifestyles, lose weight and live healthy.
At one time, my life was a complete mess. I weighed 430 pounds, was exhausted, depressed, stressed, and tired of living. Fat and happy is a lie, especially when you are super morbidly obese and in constant pain. Today, I’ve lost more than 250 pounds and kept it off since 2013. I know your pain. I can help you. I want to help you.
Are you ready to change your life?
Here’s where to begin:

For most of my life, I have struggled with identifying my purpose in God’s Kingdom. As such I have been a doer and achiever always trying to get things done for God because I wanted Him to value me. This is the same issue that Martha had with Mary. If you remember the...
There’s one thing I truly hated growing up and it stayed with me for a long time into my adult years. I hated exercise. I was clumsy. I always seemed to somehow get hurt exercising. Plus I just didn’t like to run and sweat. But God had other plans.
When the internet came into existence and we had to fold the newspaper due to lack of revenue, I hit rock bottom and felt like my purpose for living was gone. I wallowed in despair. However the despair led me to finally throw myself into the weight loss journey I knew God had for me. That led me to writing my first book which catapulted me into coaching, speaking and writing more books.
As children, if we think we don’t matter to the people who matter the most to us, it can set up a stronghold in us of “I don’t matter to God,” which can make us not trust the Holy Spirit, who lives inside us. I felt that way about my mother. She had an emotional...
The truth is found throughout scripture though. I matter to God. You matter to God. Every single person in this world, no matter who they are, matters to God. We all do.
Fear is a stronghold the devil loves to set up in us. All he has to do is move all the players in place to set up circumstances that cause us to feel we are all alone. This leads us to believe no one, not even God is there to protect us. When this happens, we either...
Fear is a stronghold the devil loves to set up in us. This leads us to believe no one, not even God is there to protect us. In this episode, I share information about when I was sexually molested as a child. All that I went through led me to a stronghold that said I Must Self-Protect. I believed that until I realized that ONLY God is my protector and yours.
When I was five years old, I was convinced Mom was the most beautiful woman in the world. I remember sitting in the only bathroom in our house watching her put on makeup complete with red lipstick. I was mesmerized. She had acne scars from when she was a child, so...
We have to recognize the lies we believe about grace and embrace the truth Jesus really does love us and wants us to love Him in return. We show our love when we follow Jesus. So simple, but so hard at the same time.
I’m Teresa Shields Parker, Christian weight loss coach, author, podcaster and speaker. I’ve been writing since I was born or at least it feels that way. I do know I was born to write. However, it wasn’t until 2013 when I wrote my memoir, Sweet Grace: How I Lost 250 Pounds and Stopped Trying to Earn God’s Favor that I really felt I could legitimately don the moniker of author. It had been 60 years in the making.
