Choosing God - not food behaviors - to satisfy our innermost needs

“Taste & See” Encouragement Conversations

 

OVERVIEW

You may not be ready or wanting to participate in a longer study right now. If you’d like a short tele-meeting for individual help dealing with your pattern of extreme food behaviors, you are warmly invited to register for a “Taste and See” Encouragement Conversation.

I’m offering 90 minute one-on-one phone calls, with a Christian spiritual focus, to explore God’s life-changing goodness and strength from his own words – the Holy Bible.  The inspiration for this has been my own experience with the encouragement in Psalm 34:8  Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him”. We can experience God’s goodness when we “feed” our souls on His truth. And He longs to be your refuge from these harmful eating behaviors.

PURPOSE OF THE CONVERSATION

The purpose of the “Taste and See” is to stimulate your desire for letting God’s power be the strength in overcoming harmful eating behaviors.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE CONVERSATION

  • Get acquainted, including my listening with compassion and without judgment to your story.
  • Discuss the nature of your relationship with God, through Jesus.
  • Delve into the attributes of God contained in a handout document and read corresponding Bible passages.
  • Discuss the connection between His attributes and changing your eating behaviors.
  • Determine what elements of your relationship with God you are willing to change and how to do that.
  • Agree if we will speak again.
