Isn't It Time To Love Your Body?

Raise Your Self-Esteem To Live A More Joyful Life

"I'm grateful for this book and what it has given me."

Society sets impossible standards for women and girls today. Distorted, digitally-manipulated images of female perfection and a steady stream of violence against women leaves us frightened, drowning in feelings of failure, and at war with our own bodies.


But it doesn't need to be like that. We don't need to face the challenges of being female in silence or alone.

Praise/Testimonials/Endorsements for Rumble Tumble Joy

"I believe that any woman could benefit from reading Rumble Tumble Joy. I sat in a room with a group of women ranging in age from 16 to 56 who all had experienced some form of self-doubt, self-depreciation, harassment, abuse, and/or regret.


By reading this book together, we started a conversation that led to both tears and laughter. The room was filled with so many silly insecurities that it was almost comical once said aloud. Not only opening up ourselves, but having the opportunity to hear about others who had similar feelings and shared history, was a very powerful, healing experience.


And, at the end of our time together, we all walked away smiling! What else could we do, but Rumble, Tumble, Joy!" —Crystal Goade, Graphic Designer, Seattle, WA
