All women have one aspect of their bodies which they’d be happy to magically fix or have fixed for them. For Teasi Cannon, it is her derriere. She uses her faith in God, love of her family and her knowledge of her purpose in life to find self-acceptance and live a happier life. She believes that God will meet our needs, and if we allow this healing of our spirit, our lives will become meaningful and we can love ourselves and others in a genuine way.

So what does all of this have to do with our tushies (“tush” for people from the Midwest, “bum” for people living in New England, or “rear end” for everyone else)? My Big Bottom Blessing offers quizzes, guidelines, references and Biblical Scriptures to show us how to change our ways to be more like Christ. By admitting that we are not perfect (in mind, body or spirit), we can move closer to God and work on making better choices which will augment our inner spiritual development. Simply put: If you hate your rear end, it means you hate yourself. You can change your attitude to overcome a barrier to knowing God on the most personal level possible.

I really liked that My Big Bottom Blessing encourages healthy spiritual living (and if I become more conscious of my status towards losing a few pounds so much the better). The book functions as a personal tool to allow spiritual breakthroughs and everyone will take something different away from it. These are lessons, life examples, personal stories, anecdotes, funny stories and dialogue which will entertain and teach the reader how to live a more satisfying and more fulfilled life now.

I recommend this book to anyone searching for spiritual development – the lessons inside are definitely worthwhile.
