If we're honest, most of us can remember eating more than we need. More often than we might care to admit, we finish a meal knowing we've had too much. Why do we push the limits of our food consumption? Does God have anything to say about this struggle?
Physician and counselor Michael R. Emlet walks us through the many reasons we may overeat and reminds us of biblical themes that should guide how we think about food and the way we eat. He reminds us that our use of food is not morally neutral, but reflects many layers of heart motivation.
Instead of experiencing guilt or shame over this struggle, however, he invites us to see that our identity is in Jesus, not in our weaknesses. Readers will be encouraged to consider new thought processes and practices that will bring new freedom to mealtime.

When you turn to God, your pain may not disappear, but fear, anxiety, and despair can be replaced with a simple trust in God's understanding, care, and love.

Dr. Michael R. Emlet offers you help to think biblically about your struggles and the struggles of the person you are caring for. Then he shares useful strategies for avoiding social, physical, and spiritual caregiving burnout.
