“With its real-talk conversational tone, Compared to Who? is a field guide for the modern
woman living in our crazy-making culture of impossible beauty ideals and the futile
pursuit of bodily perfection. Despite her claim to exemplify the ordinary, Heather
has written a book with the potential to accomplish something truly extraordinary.
Comparison is a prison—and the truth within these pages is enough to set captive
—Jena Morrow, author of Hollow
“Compared to Who? is a much-needed, gospel-centered approach to the titanic struggle
women face when they look in the mirror. Creekmore’s voice is refreshingly honest,
and she comes alongside the reader as a friend, helping women leave behind the idol
of beauty and embrace the outrageous beauty of Jesus. Compelling, well-researched,
and a helpful read.”
—Mary DeMuth, author of Worth Living: How God’s Wild Love Makes You Worthy
“If you’ve ever wanted to find freedom in the body you’ve been given, this book is for you. Heather takes you by the hand, and with solid biblical principles, exposes the lies about beauty. She’ll help you feel differently about the body you have—not the one you think you need. You’ll find freedom on these pages.”
—Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of The Happiness Dare and Love Idol
“In Compared to Who? Heather Creekmore is so real you’ll feel like you are having a
sleepover with your hilariously honest best friend. By the time you are done with this
book, you’ll have no excuses left. Ultimately, we all want to feel beautiful, but first we
have to decide that we are. This book is a call to a higher level of understanding about
our worth, our bodies, and our futures. And if you are as honest as Heather is, you’ll be
changed for the better—heart, body, and soul.”
— Jennifer Strickland, speaker, author of Beautiful Lies, More Beautiful Than You
Know, and Girl Perfect, URMore.org
“Real, raw, relatable, and refreshing. Heather speaks my language. She put words to the
very things I and many other women subconsciously do and struggle with. She tells it
like it is, cuts out the clichés, and powerfully challenges her reader—all with grace, humor,
and Truth. Every woman should read this book!”
—Jordan Lee Dooley, Founder of The SoulScripts, author of COLLEGE and BeLoved
“Heather Creekmore holds up a biblical mirror for each of us to look into as we battle body
image issues. With both humor and camaraderie, this gifted author tenderly unlocks the
door to our self-made prison of body hatred. Heather invites us to join her in embracing
new levels of freedom from our cycle of chronic comparisons. With concrete questions
to think through after each chapter, this book is a must read for anyone who looks at
herself and thinks, ‘If only . . .’ Grab a friend—or your daughter—and let’s start a healthy,
Christ-centered discussion on both the root of our body image issues and the solution.”
—Jani Ortlund, Renewal Ministries
Are you tired of clichés like “It’s what’s on the inside that counts!” or “Just love your body!” which sound encouraging but don’t really help your struggle? Then Compared to Who? is for you. It may not be grammatically correct, but it’s one question every woman should ask as she wrestles issues like:
- Am I enough?
- Should I try to be more beautiful?
- Will anyone ever love me?
- Would my life be different if I looked different?
Writing from her personal battle with weight and appearance, Heather will encourage you to see your body image struggles from a fresh perspective. Heather’s humor and honesty will encourage you, while her practical, grace-based approach will offer a path to follow to find the freedom you crave.
