Thanksgiving can bring many stressors. Between fear of calories to fear of family members we may see, anxiety and stress levels run high this time of year.

In this episode I share strategies to keep stress levels low and reminders on focal points so that you can have a thanksgiving worth remembering.
So often we do the sin we do not want to do even though we know it is not good. Part of this is because the sin has become a negative pattern in our life. From binges every three days to that daily stop at the gas station for a few candy bars, we participate in our patterns like clockwork. In order to break down our negative patterns, we must begin to create healthier ones. Part of that is by focusing on who we are in Christ, owning our worth through him and putting away the self doubt that draws us to poor food choices.
In this episode I talk about how food obsession becomes our "kingdom" that we dwell in and rule over. I share ways to turn it back into God's kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy (Romans 14:17) so that we no longer feel the temptation to hold onto our own obsessive patterns, behaviors and fears but choose the Holy Spirit that lives inside us as our leader and caretaker. By understanding how to let go of the negative behaviors, we can then move forward and experience the peace and joy God has waiting for us.
