About the Book
Author: Janet Lynn Mitchell
Genre: Non-Fiction, Self-Help
Release Date: December 1, 2017
Food for Thought is filled with personalized verses just for you. It’s been written to help you claim God’s Word as your own. The thoughts included within the verses are from fellow dieters. Food for Thought is not meant to be a substitute for actual Scripture, but an addition, bringing you new insight, perspective, hope and encouragement as you move toward and reach your weight-loss goal. Blank pages have been placed in the back so that you can add additional Scripture and/or words of encouragement. Recite these verses and include them when you pray. Then watch as God’s Word rejuvenates and empowers you. Experience your faith increasing, as faith comes by hearing, reading, speaking, and living the Word of God.
In My Opinion (Review)
Can I be completely transparent and a little vulnerable here? I am overweight. According to the BMI charts, my clothing size, the scale, and every other number-driven tool out there, I fall into the “obese” and “plus-size” categories. But my weight doesn’t define me.
Too often I have picked up books from authors on the topic of weight issues that have made me feel like I am lacking in my relationship with God because I’m not a perfect size 6. But let’s get real. How many of us truly fall into that category? While it sometimes may be true, the number on that scale doesn’t always represent my heart for God. It doesn’t always mean I have some unconfessed sin in my life.
So, I hesitated to join this blog tour. Yet, the billion dollar weight loss industry continues to thrive because people are looking for that one thing that clicks for them (and I am not immune).
Food for Thought was a pleasant surprise. This little flip book is simply a collection of Scriptures. Arranged by topics (such as habits, temptation, witness, jealousy, self-esteem, or guilt/shame), these Scriptures can be used to encourage you during your journey to lose weight (or really with any addiction). Sometimes words are bold for emphasis and parenthetical personalization is added, which you may learn to do for yourself with this tool.
Janet Lynn Mitchell has walked in my shoes. She knows first-hand the struggle with food, and she is sharing some of those Bible verses God revealed to her during her own journey.
This collection is something I will turn to often when I need a boost or when I find myself wrestling with a particular issue.
I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including NetGalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
