The author writes from personal experience with overeating / using food for comfort, pleasure, etc.
While I don't relate to her specific struggles (I struggle with anorexic behavior), the underlying truth and wisdom of this book was still quite relevant to my heart.
Some of the practical applications may or may not be helpful to you, depending on your personal struggles. (I took some of her disciplined eating strategies that are designed for those who overeat and "flipped" them to apply to me) If you are able to take what is helpful & disregard what does not apply to you, then it's a Biblically sound, hopeful resource!
This is how I want to think about, deal with and live my life in regards to food.
In my eating and drinking am I glorifying God?
now we can do this.....
The author points us to the God who loves us so much that He paid for our sins on the cross, the God who gives us power to change, and the God who provides hope beyond this life. She asks us to look at our hearts before looking at our bodies. She shows us that living life God's way is much better than living it our way. And she gives us practical advice for giving food the proper place in our lives, relating to food the way we were designed to.
Highly recommended for those who need help w/ honoring God in the way they relate to food and physical appearance.
