1. I LOVED the book, Full! It was just what I needed at just the right moment. I have been struggling with my weight gain since the birth of my first child and could never figure out what was wrong. I had never been overweight in my life. Quite the contrary. But this baby weight that won’t leave had me ashamed. Until I realized that I’ve been looking at the problem all wrong. And this book really opened my eyes to the root. Food fixation. Before kids, it was avoiding food. After kids, it has been about indulging myself. But both have been rooted in the fixation of food as a sort of control. Plus, I now have a plan to combat it. With Jesus at the center. I need to hunger more for Him than control over my own life. I cannot recommend this book more strongly.

  2. I have been listening to the audio book for Full, and cannot agree with you more about how encouraging, honest, and insightful this book is! I thought I was going to be able to just listen to it, but I’m finding that I want to buy the book, sit down, and read it with a highlighter in hand and a pen & journal next to me. There is so much to glean from this book!

  3. I am loving both of these books. I agree with your review on Full. It is making me look at food very differently. I love that her advice can be applied to more than just food. I have found myself asking, “Am I running to my phone instead of Jesus? or “Am I turning on the TV instead of reaching out to the Lord?”
    Food, and phones and TV are not bad in and of themselves but I am holding onto the truth that only Jesus can really satisfy me.

  4. I really enjoyed the fresh perspective on how to eat and how to think about what I eat. I was challenged by comparing my hunger for God with my hunger for food. How easy it is to transpose my hunger for God and try to fill it with things that will never fill it like eating, shopping, etc.
