For 16 years, Paula Neall Coleman served as assistant to the president of Scope Ministries International, a biblical counseling ministry in Oklahoma City. After moving to Kansas City, Missouri, she founded Weight of Grace Ministries in 2001. Paula currently leads women's small groups and writes, speaks, and teaches about how, for the Christian, 'being yourself' is the answer to the painful struggle many women experience with overeating and overweight.
Paula contended with overeating and overweight from the age of eight and felt horrible shame and guilt over her constant defeat in this area, especially when in her 20's and 30's she worked at a Christian counseling ministry. When a friend was hospitalized because of an eating disorder, Paula felt she was headed in that same direction. After months of Bible study, prayer, and reading about non-diet approaches to overcoming overeating, Paula began to experience total freedom from obsessions with dieting, weight, and food. This freedom has continued since 1986.
After leading Weight of Grace small groups since 1991, Paula published The Weight of Grace: Experience the Freedom from Overeating that You Already Have in 2008 (2nd edition in 2011) with the hope that women everywhere would be encouraged that they too can experience the complete freedom that Paula and many of the women who have attended her groups enjoy.Review:
We would like to recommend The Weight of Grace by Paula Neall Coleman. Rebekah recently went through this workbook with two friends and was impressed beyond words. This workbook not only dispels the lies and gives you an accurate perspective on your body and food but digs deep into your belief system and brings a deep healing into your soul. The truths taught empower you to experience total freedom from controlling diets. --Tim & Rebekah Royal, Royal Life Ministries, Newnan, Georgia
We've enjoyed using The Weight of Grace for women's small groups and have been very pleased with the content and how the book has ministered to those who have participated. I would highly recommend The Weight of Grace to churches and discipleship ministries because it helps women with far more than overeating; it leads them to the root of why they overeat, helps them learn to process their emotions in a healthy way, and deepens their dependency upon the Father and His Word. --Bill Ewing, Christian Life Ministries, Rapid City, South Dakota
The Weight of Grace journey was an encouraging and heart awakening opportunity. It is exactly what I needed to 'dig deeper' into what is motivating my behavior. --Weight of Grace small group participant
