About Teresa Shields Parker

Teresa Shields Parker has lost more than 250 pounds, more important she's keeping it off. This is her first book and people love it, skyrocketing it to the #1 Christian Weight Loss Memoir. Her second book, Sweet Change: True Stories of Transformation is also popular in that category. Sweet Freedom: Losing Weight and Keeping It Off With God's Help, though, is the book that will top them all because it tells her deeper emotional and spiritual journey. She has more than 35 years experience as a journalist and publisher only recently taking hold of what has always been her first passion-writing books.. Her books are designed to help those struggling in what she calls "the hell of carrying extreme weight." What she calls her "minor accomplishments" are numerous first-place awards for articles and publications, and then, of course, a bachelor's in journalism and a master's in biblical studies. Her passion is story. If you love true stories, told passionately, you'll love her books. Be careful, though, because in the process of reading her's you just find a pathway to your own freedom!
