Amanda Jane Cooper

Amanda Jane Cooper had the perfect life on the outside and war on the inside. She regularly stood in front of thousands of cheering people as a star actress playing Glinda in the hit Broadway musical, Wicked. She’s won film roles opposite Ellen Page and Thomas Haden Church. She even found success in television with guest and recurring roles on Glee, Bones, and CSI. By any outside measure of success, Amanda had it.

But inside, she was all doubt, unease, and trouble. She struggled with her self-image, comparing her body with everyone else’s in the entertainment industry. Then came an eating disorder and the destructive cycle of self-hate that followed.

“Why am I not okay?” she wondered. “I have everything.”

Her dreams on stage, television, and film all continued to come true, but satisfaction and peace eluded her. Then she met a woman who offered something she didn’t think was even possible.

    Amanda, thank you for being so vulnerable & open to share your story! I am hosting a girls event at my church called GROW- Girls Realizing Our Worth and I’m so excited I found this video as It hits exactly what we are talking about so now I can use it in one of our sessions! Praying God continues to use your story to inspire other girls struggling to find their true worth and that they see it really only comes from seeing themselves through God’s eyes!

    Always wonderful to hear the testimony of one who recognizes that they are loved by God, and has had their heart changed by His love for them. ❤️
