    The War for Our Girls (Children) featuring Yvette Hampton

    The War for Our Girls (Children) featuring Yvette Hampton

    Five minutes online and you can see what our girls are up against. It seems like, from every angle, their identities are under attack. From the hyper sexualization of young teens to gender dysphoria to the all out war on biblical truth--girls (and really our boys, too) face more challenges than previous generations. Today my friend Yvette Hampton and I talk about what's really going on with our girls, what they're being taught about their identity in schools, and how parents can intervene to help girls find their true identity and purpose in Jesus Christ.
    I timed this episode to intentionally help parents who will get the opportunity to spend more time with their children over Thanksgiving break. Dig in, moms! Find out what your children are being taught about their identity and purpose. It's never too late to change the conversation.
    Yvette Hampton is the producer and host of the documentary, Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution and The Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast. As a mom who is concerned for the future of this generation, Yvette has a deep desire to see a culture shift by encouraging people through God’s Word. She and her husband, Garritt, have a passion for strengthening and equipping families and the homeschool community by teaching parents how to live out their convictions and point their children towards Christ. Her greatest joy is being a wife and mom. Learn more by visiting SchoolhouseRocked.com.

    -Sarah's new book, Transforming Your Thought Life for Teens and how it can be a great resource for any teen you know.

    Navigating Holiday Eating & More: Featuring Megan Hadley (Part 2)

    Navigating Holiday Eating & More: Featuring Megan Hadley (Part 2)

    This is Part 2 of an interview with Megan Hadley, MS, RDN, LDN -- a non-diet dietician whose advice you will really enjoy. In the first episode Megan talked about why we tend to overeat in the afternoon or evening (or whenever we get home) and how we can alter our habits to avoid brain fog and that "I must eat all the things" feeling at the end of a day.
    In today's episode, Megan shares more about this and how restriction will always lead to over-doing it. We talk about the impact of restriction, how a non-diet approach helps, and we talk about why you should absolutely  never tell yourself that your diet starts January 1st. (Unless, of course, you want to eat more during the holidays!) There's so much good stuff in this interview. Share it with a friend!
    And make sure you listen to part 1 of this interview first!

    In today's episode, Megan shares how she started working with eating disorder patients, how she struggled with obsessing over clean eating and wellness, and how she helps clients learn to fight fatigue and get comfortable with food again.

When she’s not working, Megan enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. She loves cooking, traveling, long naps, good wine, and french fries. Megan finds her strength, both personally and professionally, rooted in her deep faith in Christ, as she knows she was created to live a life of abundance and to help other women believe and discover that, as well.

Awesome podcast

I found Heather when I heard her on the Intuitive Eating for Christian Women podcast. I really enjoyed listening to her and quickly found her podcast which has become my favorite. Hearing anti diet information from a Christian perspective has been so helpful to me in overcoming years of disordered eating. Thank you for doing this wonderful podcast!

Can I give 6 stars??? I want to!!

Love this! So helpful in overcoming comparison struggles (particularly body image) with a non-fluffy Christian perspective. Keep up the good work, Heather!!!

Miracles through Google

I googled body idolatry after promptings from the holy spirit and found Heather. My miracle started as I reviewed the prayers and received healing from body image idolatry. I love the practicality and loving tone that Heather provides in every podcast
