Manage episode 302242409 series 2412309
Do you ever run to food for comfort when you are feeling sad, angry, or upset? Do you ever have negative self-talk with body image? Or have you prayed and asked God to give you freedom in this area, only to feel like He’s not listening?
If you’ve ever felt like food has a hold on you or you can’t break free from negative body image issues, you are not alone. In this podcast episode, you’ll be encouraged and find hope for overcoming food addictions and finding freedom in this area.
Our guest, Dr. Rhona Epstein, is an expert in food addictions and she shares with us how to discern an addiction from a bad habit, the importance of separating food from our emotions, and the true answer for freedom.
We cannot separate the issue of our physical health from our overall health, so this is a vital issue for us to explore as Christian women leaders. We wrap up our conversation talking about how the church can play a role in helping people find freedom in this area.
