Author, speaker and educator Michelle Stimpson wants to help people release the stronghold food has on them.
“Speak to Your Food is quite a revolutionary approach to breaking the stronghold to food. It’s written specifically for believers who are struggling with food,” Stimpson said about her book. “By taking a look at the life of Jesus (who actually spoke to many things), we can discover principles and spiritual insight for powerful, purposeful, Kingdom-focused living.”
Stimpson believes that we need to get back to basics and once we gain power over food, it will give people power in other areas of their lives.
“First of all, we’ve gotten away from ‘blessing’ our food while, at the same time, we (as a society) are consuming a great deal of processed/synthetic foods. Blessing our food sanctifies it for our bodies.
“Secondly, those of us who are quite productive, determined, and disciplined in several areas of life but seem to be powerless when it comes to food need to learn to take authority in this area by the power of God. His grace is sufficient for us—it’s a matter of skillfully applying the weapons He made available to us through Christ.
“Winning the battle over food is just the beginning. By learning to speak to food, people will also come into an understanding of how to identify and speak to other addictive elements and practices we call ‘bad habits’ that are actually strongholds.”
“Don’t believe the lie that you can’t stop overeating at certain events, when you’re around certain foods, or (for women) that you’re out of control for a certain number of days on the calendar. Jesus is the same everywhere at all times. We can learn to walk in His power—and it’s actually a lot easier than one might think!”
“Being focused on food—eating it, preparing it, buying it, overeating it, lamenting it, avoiding it, feeling guilty about it, eating more thanks to condemnation—quite frankly, it’s just exhausting! I want readers to be able to focus on what God has called them to do instead of living from meal-to-meal and regret-to-regret.”
