Health & Holiness: Nifty Ways to Leave Your Blubber

Our physical bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, which means that we are called to take care of them.  Today, Jeff shares his approach to healthy eating and explains his most recent diet plan that brought him closer to the Lord in a surprising way. Please note that this episode is based on Jeff’s personal experience, be sure to consult a medical professional as you decide what eating habits are best for you. 

Snippet from the Show

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


 “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20


Our relationship with food has an important impact on our overall health and our ability to serve the Lord. Today, I share with you my most recent diet changes and explain how eating right has strengthened my relationship with the Lord. Below, you can find one of my favorite juice recipes and also some pictures of Emily’s pandemic menu. I hope this inspires you to take care of the body God has given you!
