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.

Christmas is a very special time of the year when we are usually around lots of family and friends. For many, though, it can be lonely especially if we can’t be with family or friends.

Crisis of Faith Driven by Anxiety
When we don’t trust God to be our defender, protector, provider, healer and comforter. This is when we feel like we are all alone and have to attack every problem by ourselves, but we can’t figure out how. That’s where the disciples were when they couldn’t heal a...
Episode 161-Driven by Anxiety
Unless we trust God with the issue, our anxiousness results in nothing being solved or fixed. This repetitive action results in us being driven by anxiety. It makes us feel stuck or caged in to the point that we see things we want to do, but our anxiety keeps us from even trying.
What is God’s cure for those who are driven by anxiety?
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.
