What a special episode full of deep reflection on the power of the gospel to change our lives and our health. Kara shares how God has journeyed her through challenge to realize the need for more resources that direct women toward Jesus rather than the next fad diet. And now she's doing just that - helping to change the narrative for young women who are seeking to change their bodies when their greatest need is centered in the heart <3
Kara Stockton is the founder of Bibles Bodies and Brunch, a program that focuses on both the spiritual and physical aspects of our health. With a scripture informed approach, Kara creates resources that encourage young women to target the root of the choices we make, not just what’s on the surface. Well versed in this area through her own journey with long Covid, Kara realized how damaged her view of health was. As God took her through a journey of undoing her own disordered health habits, He gave her the desire to share these revelations and help other women undo their disordered habits as well. Uplifted by the spiritual truth that God can heal, her approach helps women to find where their spiritual health is suffering in order to nurture those places with the truths of Jesus.
