    In this episode, FINDINGbalance Executive Director, Chrissy Kirkman, has an inspiring discussion with registered/licensed dietitian and co-founder of the Peace With Food app, Amy Carlson. Listen in to discover new knowledge and ways of thinking that will help equip you to become who God wants you to be– no matter where you are in your journey with food and body image.

    In this episode, FINDINGbalance Executive Director, Chrissy Kirkman, talks with the founder of Eden Therapy Co, Angelica Gonzalez, about her experiences and several practical tools we can use to recover from trauma and learn how to hear God's voice in our journey to freedom.

    3. Diet Culture Soup with Dr. Alisa Shanks

    Full eating disorder recovery is possible! Even in the midst of an eating disorder, God is the God of hope, healing, and restoration. Be encouraged today as FINDINGbalance Executive Director, Chrissy Kirkman, chats with Dr. Alisa Shanks, a clinical psychologist and FINDINGbalance board chair.

    A marinade infuses flavor. Unfortunately, we live in a diet culture infused with toxic messages about size, shape, body image, worth, value, what is and isn't "okay" to eat, how our bodies are "supposed" to look, and other lies from the enemy. Be filled with hope as Dr. Shanks exposes cultural lies and replaces them with sound, biblical truth.
