39. Uprooting Diet Culture in The Church with Liesel Maddox
In this sweet episode of the Old School Food Freedom Podcast, host Chrissy Kirkman and guest Liesel Maddox, RDN, LD, tackle a topic that's close to their hearts: tearing down the lies of diet culture within the Church. As they dive into the intersection of faith and food, Liesel highlights the importance of aligning our understanding of food and nutrition with biblical principles and rejecting the harmful message of diet culture for the freedom of God's people. Knowing that our sanctification isn't tied to changing our bodies or pursuing weight loss but rooted in seeking God's truth and honoring Him with our bodies, we can reconcile our relationship with food and restore its place in our lives — where food is not only for survival, but an emotional, relational, and enjoyable part of God's creation. By lifting the veil on harmful diet culture lies that have infiltrated the Church, Chrissy and Liesel share valuable perspectives and tools you can use to help foster a safer, and more God-honoring approach to food and body within your beloved church community. _ LINKS + RESOURCES: ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠oldschoolfoodfreedom.com⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠Donate to FINDINGbalance⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ We love hearing from you!

35. How to Reclaim Christ-Centered Agency Over Your Body with Tracy Brown, RD, LD/N
In this episode of The Old School Food Freedom Podcast, host Chrissy Kirkman is joined by Tracy Brown, RD, LD/N to explore a recent and deeply personal experience Chrissy faced. Chrissy's story underscores the reality that regardless of our progress on the journey towards freedom from food and body image struggles, we all encounter challenges that test our boundaries and growth, even with the right tools at hand. None of us are exempt from these trials, but we don't have to give in to the deception and discouragement they bring. Grounded in Christ-centered reflection and restoration, we can replace fear, shame, and even rage with the liberating truth of God's grace. Tracy's insights throughout the conversation offer valuable guidance for navigating such difficult moments, advocating for reclaiming "Christ-centered agency over our bodies," embracing and expressing emotions in healthy ways, and ultimately moving closer to healing and true freedom. _ LINKS + RESOURCES: ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠oldschoolfoodfreedom.com⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠Donate to FINDINGbalance⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ We love hearing from you!

Okay y’all, we have another fired-up episode of the Old School Food Freedom Podcast to kick off 2024!

22. Hello, Freedom! How Taylor Coote Broke Free from OSFED
In another moving installment of our "Hello, Freedom! Summer Road Trip" series, FINDINGbalance Grant Writer, Taylor Coote, shares how God led her to freedom from the bondage of 'Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder' (OSFED), a clinical category used to describe a variety of disordered eating behaviors that do not meet all the diagnostic criteria for a specific eating disorder. In this episode, Taylor describes how dysfunctional childhood experiences created an opening for the enemy to sneak in with lies about her worth and identity as a daughter of the King. Find out how God showed up for Taylor in the middle of the road, how her college counselor helped her find treatment, the role her boyfriend-turned-husband played in supporting her through treatment and recovery, and the commitment she has made to break the generational curse of diet culture!
