Asheritah beautifully lays out a spiritual battle plan for those struggling over a fixation with food. Full is the reminder that your soul was made to crave God above all else!
New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
It just takes a few paragraphs to sense that Asheritah is a friend. I saw myself in her stories and I think you will too. This book will help you become more aware of your relationship with food while driving you closer to Jesus, the true Bread of Life.
Coauthor of Growing Up Social: Raising Relational Kids in a Screen-Driven World
“Wow. She really gets it.” Page after page, I spoke those words aloud as I read this important book. If you have ever struggled with food, this book is for you. In Full, Asheritah thoroughly dismantles the lies we believe about food—and about ourselves—and then points us straight to the truth we find in Jesus. This book will set a lot of women free, and it will stir up within them a holy hunger.

Equal parts practical and inspiring, Ashertah Ciuciu balances the perfect blend of soulful encouragement and real-life application. Diving straight into the heart of the matter, Full is a book any woman who has struggled with a food fixation needs to read.
New York Times Bestselling Author of Living Well, Spending Less and Unstuffed
This is not a simple book on how to eat right and lose weight. Asheritah’s fine research into the psychology of food fixation and the biblical and spiritual roots of this preoccupation is captivating. But she doesn’t stop there. She surveys the biblical perspective of God’s gift of food and how to celebrate and serve others with food. An incredibly uplifting and hope-filled book.

This book isn’t only about food; it’s also about worship. Full is a refreshing guidebook to a help reframe your relationship with food as you draw closer to God. With practical solutions and gentle encouragement, Asheritah reminds us of this truth: food is a gift, and worship happens around a table.
Author of Every Little Thing and One: Unity in a Divided World
After reading Full, I am convinced that it is a vital resource for all Christian counselors to help individuals and groups break free from food fixation and grow deeper in their walk with Christ. Asheritah compels readers to explore and uncover the spiritual and emotional roots of food fixation while also providing practical application steps toward health and wholeness. Full is refreshingly honest and compassionately convicting, addressing a topic that I have yet to hear preached from the pulpit in twenty-plus years of regular church attendance and yet one that every soul is hungry to hear.

If your relationship with food has been a battlefield for you, and if you would like to take a biblical approach in pursuing victory, then you should hit pause on your diet while embracing the mindset shift Asheritah unpacks in Full.

Full is the perfect blend of scriptural truths and practical applications exposing the mental battle we are engaged in. Going beyond food fixations, Asheritah teaches us to embrace the truth and transforming power found in God’s Word. Christian women need the encouragement so carefully penned here. I am so thankful Asheritah wrote Full and grateful for the battle plan found within the pages of this book.

Every now and again a woman is brave enough to shine the light, full and revealing, into the darkest recesses of her own heart, with the hope of illuminating the same sin-tendencies bound up in the murky corners of other people’s private lives.

As readers follow along on her journey to understand each misplaced craving, they can’t help but come face to face with the only One who can ever truly satisfy their own deep hunger!

Have you ever wondered “What is wrong with me? Why can’t I win this food battle once and for all?” This resource helped me to understand.
How many “diets/plans” have you attempted in your life…for those trying to lose and others seeking to be healthier? Yet, there is always another method/process/plan. The bottom line is that we are putting too much weight on the issue. (Couldn’t resist the pun.) In all seriousness, we create in food an idol. Whether we focus on chocolate or kale…there is just too much emphasis, time, energy, and thought placed on something meant to be nourishment. I am praying that “Full. Food, Jesus, and the Battle for Satisfaction” continues to teach me to fix my heart on Christ instead, for He has already won.
In "Full," Asheritah offers solid, biblically sound instruction to help readers learn to lean on God instead of the scale. LOVE the free, interactive bonus features woven throughout the book: videos, lock screens to download for mobile devices, and charts/graphs/journaling pages. They provide great support and encouragement - make the experience deeper.
*I received an advance copy in exchange for my honest opinion...then purchased another on Amazon and seven more from Moody Publishers. * Like potato chips, once you taste one – you can’t stop. Wait. You can stop munching the chips; “Full” teaches you how!
I found chapters 10 and 11 ("Embrace the Grace of Community" and "Serve with Food") to be especially challenging and thought-provoking. How should food be treated in the church? How can we move the focus of our hearts from food to God during times of fellowship? How can we remember and care for the hungry? These are all good questions...and things I need to think about more.
I also appreciate that a chapter is dedicated to fasting, something noted in the Bible but not overly discussed in modern times. It feels like more of a radical or foreign concept, but I don't think it's supposed to be. There's so much I have to learn about fasting, and it's helpful to have some guidance in this book.
When read too quickly, I could see Full being a bit overwhelming...there's a lot to "digest" in the area of eating! But I appreciate that the intent of this book is to direct readers to Jesus and how we can honor Him in this part of our lives that tends to "consume" a lot of our time and thinking. (Pardon the puns!)
Full is an encouraging read that tackles a touchy topic with grace.
