    A Journey to Balance Food, Emotions, and the Soul with Danna Demetre

    A Journey to Balance Food, Emotions, and the Soul with Danna Demetre

    Many women struggle with emotional eating at some point in their lives. It can become easy to turn to food when we’re sad, lonely, angry, or bored. In today's episode, I chatted with Danna Demetre, author and registered nurse, who helped us unlock the secrets to a healthier relationship with food. 
    Listen in to discover how to gain control over emotional eating and liberate yourself from guilt and self-condemnation. We dive into Dana's transformative study, "Beyond Emotional Eating: Spiritual Steps to Gain Control Over Food," and learn how integrating our faith can be the key to wholeness in every aspect of life. Shame can be a shackle, but this episode is about breaking free from habits that keep us stuck!

    What to Do When Another Person Dismisses Your Thought, Feeling, or Concern

    Ever felt like you're talking, but no one's listening? 
    You're not alone! It can be frustrating and even hurtful when we feel like our concern, opinion, or perspective is dismissed. So, what do we do when we find ourselves in situations like this? 
    Our latest episode is here to arm you with the tools for transforming those frustrating encounters into opportunities for growth and connection. 
    Join me as we explore the nuances of conflict resolution, drawing wisdom from the pages of "Healthy Conflict Peaceful Life." 
    We're delving into the heart of misunderstandings and peeling back the layers to understand why your words might fall on deaf ears. Discover how to discern whether someone's dismissive attitude stems from confusion, indifference, or something else entirely. 
    And remember, this conversation doesn't end here—join the ongoing dialogue on social media and my website, where your journey towards mastering the art of peaceful conflict continues.

Finding Hope and Joy in the Midst of Hardship

What an encouragement! It is so important as believers to not give up on sharing our personal testimonies of how God shows up. Love your podcast, thank you for being faithful and providing a platform that leads us to Him and His Word in the midst of our dark valleys.

Mrs. Futch ,

Ever so Thankful

Donna is an absolute inspiration for me. Her Bible knowledge is amazing and so practical. The scriptures she teaches on are so powerful and yet perfect for the day or season I’m walking through. I have cried, laughed, and rejoiced listening to this podcast. I encourage everyone to put on God’s word daily and this is a great place to start!

BreaLynn16 ,

Best way to start the day!

I listen to this podcast every morning and it feels like I’m getting advice from a motherly friend. I got my mom into this podcast and it has been changing our conversations and has brought us closer. I have learned to be a better wife, friend, youth leader, and person. When I finally listen to all the episodes, I’ll definitely be starting over! Can’t recommend this podcast enough!!
