From the Back Cover Would you give up sugar to experience the sweet presence of God in your life? Many of us think that if our bodies become healthier, then we'll be healthier. But a healthy body doesn't do us a lot of good if we are spiritually malnourished. Welcome to the 40-Day Sugar Fast, a process that begins with us giving Jesus our sugar and ends with Jesus giving us more of Himself--the only thing that can ever truly satisfy our soul's deep hunger. On this journey you'll learn how to - stop fixating on food and fix your eyes on Christ - pinpoint the triggers that send you running to sugar - lose weight as you gain faith - turn to the Most High instead of the next sugar high If you run to sugar for comfort or reward, eat mindlessly or out of boredom, feel physically and spiritually lethargic, or struggle with self-control, this fast will help you discover not only freedom from your cravings but an entirely new appetite for the good things God has for you. More than anything I want to be able to say with Jesus, 'My food is to do the will of him who sent me' (John 4:34). And traveling with Wendy and the 40-Day Sugar Fast community was the beginning of that journey for me.-- Lisa-Jo Baker , bestselling author of Meet Me in the Middle , Never Unfriended , and Surprised by Motherhood Wendy Speake is a trained actress, Bible teacher, speaker, and writer based in California.
