Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a blessing you, your recipes and devotionals have been to me and my family. I have engaged in disordered eating starting as early as the 6th grade. I am finally starting to see victory by turning this area completely over to God, along with the rest of those secret things we cling to without even realizing it. He is soooo willing and faithful to take these areas of our lives and transform them. I am truly overwhelmed by His love for us, and He is truly using Dashing Dish and you as a reminder of these beautiful promises.
However, this email is to share with you what a blessing Dashing Dish was to my daughter and I this morning. My five year old daughter and I are staying home from church this morning due to the lingering effects of cold she had this weekend, so I decided to dive into the 30 day Dashing Dish devotional. I just finished the 10 session study and loved it. I began with Day 1 and was writing the scripture and prayer in my journal when she came up to my computer and asked what I was doing. We, at that moment, began a God-led dialog about food and body image with the help of the scripture and prayer in Day 1. We have had many, many conversations about healthy food choices and exercise but never about what God’s Word says about food, exercise and body image.
We also talked about how to let the Holy Spirit lead us in what we eat and how much to eat. It was the first of many conversations I plan to have with her and her little sister. I am excited and blessed to know that with God’s guidance that they may not grow up with the same distorted thinking that I did, and Dashing Dish is a huge resource being used by God to do just that. God is not only using you to help repair the lives of others, but also spare the next generation of the same destruction. Thank you sooo much for following and embracing God’s purpose for your life and letting you journey bless the lives of others. My girls and I thank you, and may God bless you and your family!!!
