Can the Bible help me with my food struggles? Have you ever felt stuck in a seemingly endless cycle of overeating, yo-yo dieting, and obsessive thoughts about food? Whether you feel defeated by your lack of self-control or overwhelmed by thoughts and longings for food, the answer to our food fixation does not lie in the $500 billion global diet industry. This is not a diet book and it’s not a healthy eating plan. Because at the core, our problem is not really what we eat. It’s why we seek fullness in something that will never satisfy. Join Asheritah Ciuciu as she shares honestly about her own battles with food and reveals the path to freedom. You’ll discover the joy of living free from food fixation so you can experience deeper satisfaction in Christ, gain a renewed sense of purpose, and yes, even enjoy good food (without regret). A healthier relationship with food through a stronger relationship with Christ—that’s the goal of Full. Includes a quiz to help you find out if you have food fixation, plus practical strategies for overcoming it.

What would you be willing to give up to experience the presence of God in your life again? Many of us sign up for a physical detox program, thinking that if our bodies are healthier, then we're healthier. But a healthy body doesn't do us a lot of good if we are spiritually malnourished. Welcome to the 40-Day Sugar Fast, a fast that begins with us giving Jesus our sugar and ends with Jesus giving us more of himself--the only thing that can ever truly satisfy our soul's deep hunger. On this 40-day journey you'll learn how to stop fixating on food and other things you use to fill the voids in life and instead fix your eyes on Christ. Anyone who runs to sugar for comfort or a reward, who eats mindlessly or out of boredom, who feels physically and spiritually lethargic, or who struggles with self-control will discover here not only freedom from their cravings but an entirely new appetite for the good things God has for us.

The Paradoxical Commandments have been quoted around the world for decades. It all started when Kent Keith first articulated the ten timeless principles when he was a college student in the 1960s, and then put them into book form in the classic Anyway. His modern credo for finding personal meaning in the face of adversity became a sensation. Now the author returns to present an important and inspiring new book illustrating the Paradoxical Commandments through Bible stories and verses. In Jesus Did It Anyway, Keith draws from the Old and New Testaments, the teachings of Jesus and the apostles, and personal experiences to demonstrate how the Paradoxical Commandments are grounded in Scripture and the Christian faith. Each chapter offers inspiring stories that illuminate the Paradoxical Commandments by examining how Jesus and other biblical figures lived their faith—they faced tremendous adversity, but always knew they were divinely blessed. Keith reveals how answering Jesus’s call to live a paradoxical life can lead to the deepest personal meaning and spiritual fulfillment.
This work reviews significant Biblical texts and presents a traditional perspective on the meaning of Christian marriage and the celebrations of weddings in the church. The book provides a thought provoking examination and practical applications for premarital counseling and marriage enrichment.
