We start with some of the stories making headlines and then turn to the battle on Capitol Hill regarding the confirmation of several Department of Defense nominees. We will also find out what was the outcome of the National Defense Authorization Act. Lastly, if your time in the Bible has felt tedious and you are longing to revitalize your faith, our conversation today will be very helpful. Join us to learn how you can grow your faith in ways you never have before by reading the Bible for the next 90 days—cover to cover. It may sound impossible, but it's absolutely not. Having briskly read through the Bible for years, our guest knows the profound impact this spiritual reset can have. We all need a reset. This is your invitation to wrest yourself away from the siren call of the world and reorient your heart to worship the One who gave His life for you.
Join us today with your questions as our guest shines a light on the most overlooked area of our relationship with food: emotional and unintentional eating. We will learn to understand why we eat and she will provide strategies to control eating. Be inspired to re-examine the way we think about food, develop a thoughtful approach to eating, and discover how to take control of eating habits.
