Speaking Testimonials

Teresa Shields Parker has lived what she teaches.

Few understand the shame of super morbid obesity, the ongoing struggle with appetite, and the support needed to battle and conquer the grip of sugar on your life. She isn’t some 20-something fitness guru trying to motivate your body into shape, but a real flesh and blood woman who has lost more than 260 pounds and kept it off form more than three years. Battle by daily battle she has taken her life back and has now dedicated herself to helping others win at permanent weight loss and escape early death.

She is one of the top Christian weight loss coaches in the country and her book, Sweet Grace: How I Lost 250 Pounds and Quit Trying to Earn God’s Favor is the long-standing #1 Christian weight loss memoir on Amazon. Through her compelling life story and systematic support, she helps others endure the process to change their lives. For those trapped in the cycle of food addiction, Teresa offers hope, instills strength, and builds stamina in the sould to win the battle once and for all.

Wendy K. Walters

Motivational Speaker, Branding Expert and Author Coach

Teresa Parker knows how to inspire, motivate and propel you the way you really want to go, but don’t know how to get there.

Her books and workbooks are awesome resources, but when you hear her speak the truth in love from her personally it resonates deep inside. There is something about knowing that you are visibly seeing “half” of a person who is now finally really “whole” impacts your life forever.

Teresa’s messages speak volumes without any condemnation. She can feel your pain because she has been in your shoes. Whether it’s weight loss or addiction, relationship failure or lack of motivation, she will find your area of need and catapult you to the next place that you need to be to follow God’s purpose for your life. Don’t miss the chance of hearing this sincere woman of God share her life story.

Teresa has been chosen to speak to our women’s group several times.

Her truth and honesty always ring true in the hearts of those who hear. She gracefully challenges each person to bravely move forward with action towards living a healthy life in Christ.  I love the stories she tells and the questions she poses, all sourced in love.
