How can women develop healthy attitudes about food and our bodies in a culture where we are bombarded with 250,000 ads before age seventeen? Join a licensed Christian therapist as she speaks with humor, scripture, research, and her own powerful story about defeating the body image bandit, the father of lies. Here is an example of her speaking passionately about body image on Carrie Abbott’s show, The Legacy Institute, on KCIS Seattle 630AM:

Cherrie Herrin-Michehl, MA, LMHC has a private practice in Woodinville, WA. She received :writer and speaker, Cherrie has spoken at numerous churches and on radio programs. Cherrie has written a book called Tooshie: Defeating the Body Image Bandit.

Highlights include:

  • Laugh your way to a better body image!
  • Learn to defeat the lies of the body image bandit so you can live out your calling.

“Freedom from the body image wars and body obsession begins with the

truths in this fresh new look at making peace with your body.”

Gregory L. Jantz, PhD, CEDS,

“Cherrie Herrin Michehl is a excellent, fun speaker.  She uses humorous stories that allow us to relate to her and that capture our imaginations.  She communicates God’s deeper truths in ways that allow women to grasp concepts and apply them to everyday life. I know her to be a prayer warrior and a woman who invites others to follow the Lord with a zeal, passion, excitement and who expects God to do great things.”

Anna Joan Lockard, MA, LMHC, Director of Women’s Ministry, Wabash Presbyterian Church, Enumclaw, WA

“Using humor, Cherrie Herrin-Michehl uniquely shares her passion of nurturing women in embracing their bodies and transforming their minds. She connects with women as she conveys rich biblical truths in drawing from her own life experiences.”

Although I am a licensed mental health counselor, I do not specialize in eating disorders. The purpose of my book and blog are to help people fight the lies of the Body Image Bandit, the father of lies, so they can move forward with pursuing their callings. If you are struggling with an eating disorder, I highly recommend you seek professional help from a counselor with significant experience and training in eating disorders. Some excellent resources are: National Eating Disorders Association The Center for Hope (eating disorders and depression counseling)

You have a greater purpose than obsessing!

  1. Wow, what a story you have. I’m a RN by training and in a previous life I worked for biotech company that makes the drug Enbrel, of which one of its indication for use is AS.

    Anyway, I think the premise for your book is awesome! Great job!!!


    1. Thank you. It’s exciting! Blessings to you in your journey of writing.(I’m on Humira, which is also an amazing drug. I’ve heard great things about Enbrel too.) Keep writing!


    2. Kimberly, for some reason I just saw this. 😦 Sorry for the delayed response! I’m on Humira, but don’t quipu for any help whatsoever. It will cost me $1800 a month. Works fabulous, but so unaffordable. It feels like I’m being punished for working, as I love my career. Thanks for your response!
