You may have seen ads, in the mall or on TV, for the new Style Network show "Ruby," a reality show about the experiences of a morbidly obese woman from Savannah.

I listened in to a portion of an interview by Lisa Hendey (of fame) with the star of the show, which premiers Sunday, November 9.

What first struck me when I checked out Ruby's website is how authentically lovely she is -- despite her size, some would say.

Lisa's interview revealed that Ruby is in fact a Christian who considers her walk with God to be the most important journey she's on. She says that she insisted to the show's producers that her faith be incorporated into the program, and she explains that her attempts to now lose weight and regain her health are motivated in part by a recognition that she was "made in God's image."

Something we can certainly agree about!

I think I'll check out the program. If you do, come back and tell us what you think.
