Addressing Body Image Biblically w/ Alex Ford | Ep. 234

Today’s episode is a conversation with Alex Ford, founder of Cultivate Well. Alex helps us navigate how we should think about our bodies in light of God’s good design and what He says in His Word. Did you know that you can trace a biblical view of the body from Genesis all the way to Revelation? Well, you can! Alex shows us in Scripture how we can think holistically about our bodies as a means of stewardship and what it looks like to pursue Christ-centered wellness.
