Do you ever wonder why so many of our best memories and most cherished relationships involve food?

When my kids are going to come home, they will request their favorite meals and desserts. Making it for them warms my heart as their mom!

Why is that? Could it be a design decision rather than a default one?

There are numerous references in the bible to food, feeding and nourishing God’s people, and the feasts God wants to prepare for us. 

God’s gift of food is to be enjoyed in every sense, in our home’s environment, in preparation, and in bringing family members together.

“God never just fills our bellies. He fills our homes. He fills our hearts.”  – Erin Davis

But with every gift that God gives, the enemy will attach shame to it. 

In this episode, I will talk with Erin Davis about her new book Fasting & Feasting, 40 Devotions to Satisfy the Hungry Heart.

She will show how God’s Word celebrates food as a gift while inviting us to surrender our lives in every area. 

Instead of yo-yo-ing between loving and hating food, Erin invites us to accept Scripture’s invitation into a different, nourishing, and refreshing rhythm.

Erin’s approach to Fasting and Feasting will change how you experience and cherish the voice of God!
