What an inspiring story you have to share! I have been a reader of you website for several years and have directed many individuals to your recipes after testing them out myself. I am a Registered Dietitian, wife, mom and follower of Jesus. My passion is to help individuals who are seeking solutions for weight loss and health, to encounter the Healer and only one who can deliver freedom and renewal. I have worked in private practice but most recently a surgical practice where I was 1 of 3 dietitians working within our bariatric program (my husband and I moved recently and I am currently a stay-at-home mom to our 8 month old daughter). So many of my patients had forms of "eating disorders" (or severe disordered eating patterns) although not formally diagnosed and had toxic thinking that had contributed to hopelessness, loneliness and unrest... always searching but never finding that which would soothe their soul. I have directed many people to your website for recipes, but hoping that they would also come across your testimony as they searched. Thank you for your ministry and being a willing vessel, for openly sharing your story and for being unapoligetic in your blog posts. You don't water down your message but instead share truth in its purest and most loving form. In my devotional the other day, Spiritual Java, Beni Johnson stated, "He wants the stories of our lives to reflect His presence, which means that they will also reflect His rest." I think that people not only want to thrive but experience peace in walking out their victory, not feeling exhausted and worn trying to hold on to victory. My prayer is that when people visit your website they leave hungrier than when they arrived and have been introduced to Jesus, the only one who can satisfy. Blessings in your mission and vision to be a world changer.
