Today’s guest is Erin Davis. Erin is an author, Bible teacher, and podcaster who has a new book out on Feasting and Fasting. Today is part one of my interview with Erin where we talk about her own journey with an eating disorder in college. We also talk about how God has touched Erin’s relationship with food through a deep dive through scripture. This led Erin to explore how often God encourages his followers to feast and celebrate his goodness and to fast and seek His face. In this episode, we talk about Erin’s experience with fasting and how God has used it to draw him closer to her and to help her surrender areas of self-focus in her life.

**Disclaimers: If you have an eating disorder or are recovering or recovered from an eating disorder, the fasting Erin talks about in this episode may not be suitable for you at this point in your journey. Please seek wise counsel from an eating disorder specialist if you are unsure. Fasting for weight loss reasons is dieting, not biblical fasting. Though we didn’t mention it in this episode, there are also many medical reasons why you may need to fast differently for the health of your body.
