The Food Fight Inside Us: Sneak Peek Into My New Book Part Two [Episode 237]

The Food Fight Inside Us: Sneak Peek Into My New Book Part Two

Share with a woman who needs hope!

I’m finishing up a new book chronicling my relationship with God through years of spiritual lies and emotional abuse. Today I’m sharing a little bit of part two, this time written from the perspectives of different parts of me during my adult years. You’ll meet Freaked, Rosie, Melancholy, Rude, and more. If you’ve ever felt like part of you believes one thing and another part of you believes something completely different, rest assured, you aren’t alone!

"I had no idea that what I experienced for years in my marriage was abusive. I thought yelling was normal, I thought name calling was to be endured, I thought my husband should be in charge and in control without question, I thought marriage was forever regardless of how I felt, I thought this world is not my home thus you just live through it, I thought my life was normal. I was heavy into exercise, running, and doing everything for my 4 kids, and working full time. Looking back, I was keeping busy to avoid interaction with my spouse as much as possible. Until 2020. Life stopped. My oldest daughters continued to tell me I didn’t deserve how I was being treated. They saw it long before I did. But I refused to believe it. 2020 gave me time to research and think. I discovered Leslie Vernick and read about my life in her book. I got myself a counselor that further verified my thoughts and feelings. I moved out of my house in Feb 2021. I Discovered Natalie and this podcast shortly thereafter. Her podcast and the Flying Free program gave me the strength I needed on a daily basis to keep going. I fear I may have gone back had it not been for the Flying Free program. I listened to podcast after podcast, I listened to workshops within the program. Emotional abuse IS A REAL PROBLEM IN CHRISTIAN MARRIAGES and I had no idea prior to 2020. This podcast and Natalie’s sisterhood was a lifesaver for me. Highly recommended!"

    I second what Colleen said! I LOVED when you spontaneously broke out of character and let your laughter out! I laughed out loud along with you. This whole episode was classic! You broke down IFS in such an easy to understand, relatable way. I imagine so many women were nodding their heads and saying, “yep!”, identifying with those parts we all have inside us. Thank you Natalie for putting words and context to what we experience. SO helpful!!!

    Where is the transcript for the Food Fight? I am a reader, visual learner so I always look for the transcript versus the audio version. Thank you, Leah Hess

      Because this is an excerpt from an upcoming book, there is no transcript!
