More Than Conquerors
Kristyn Schott pt 2
In today’s culture of “image is everything,” many people, especially women and most especially, young women, fall into the devil’s trap of eating disorders. This can be deadly. I’ve known people that have had eating disorders. They are constantly in denial. It is not an easy addiction to overcome on your own.
Because this addiction is so prevalent in our society today, I wanted to bring our guest on for an interview to give you hope, encouragement and some examples of how she was able to overcome her eating disorder. How did she do it? With God’s help. Amen! Now, she has a unique calling to help others as well.
Kristyn Schott says her faith is now the most important thing in her life. Her passion is writing and she has been writing, what she says is, “recreationally” for 15 years and professionally now for more than four years.
After battling her eating disorder, Kristyn felt a call from God to use her Spiritual gift of writing to spread hope to the millions of others that are affected by eating disorders and to help them move forward in Faith. In her free time, she loves hanging out with her friends and family and, get this, lifting ALL of the heavy weights she can at the gym!
She is the author of a great book titled, “More Than Conquerors,” available on Amazon. And, as Kristyn says in her book, “God can turn your mess into a message.” To share how God can give you a clearer understanding of that phrase, help me welcome to the program, Kristyn Schott!
“Recovery” is the next section. Obviously, someone does need to recover and get back to good health physically. How can this section also help them to recover spiritually?
Overweight eating disorders deal with comfort foods, etc. Your book can help with people suffering from this disorder as well, correct?
Finally, we get to “Freedom.” Share with our listeners about this section of the book and how they can apply it to their lives…
One part I really liked in your book, is how you insert the problem people are going through directly into scripture. For example, for “weakness” you have the reader write out what their biggest weakness is – at that moment. Write it down. Then, insert that weakness into 2 Corinthians 12:9 that says, “But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in “weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about (Your Weakness), so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
That is a very powerful tool that can be used by almost every person listening to us right now and it does not have to be directly related to eating disorders. It can be any form of weakness we are experiencing. This is very powerful! How has God used that revelation that you are now using to help others, how has He used that to help you?
Now, you’ve had a few stumbles along the way. And that is not to be unexpected. The devil always tries to discourage us. How did God help to restore you when those setbacks occurred?
Explain what you mean by the terms redefine your identity, rebuild your Faith and rediscover your relationship with God?
How can someone do that? What are some practical steps that will help someone accomplish these things?
This is all great information, Kristyn. And it is all inside your book, “More Than Conquerors” available on Amazon, correct?
Kristyn, this is so interesting and you are so engaging. I can feel your passion for what you are doing coming through this interview. If someone wanted to get in touch with you, to ask a question or maybe to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can they get in touch with you?
Folks, eating disorders are so prevalent in our society and culture today. Odds are, you know someone who is going through and suffering from an eating disorder right now. They may not admit it to you. But you are sensing the Lord is showing you this might be the case. You need to pray and ask the Lord to give you favor in talking with this person so they can get the help they need to overcome it. The Lord will provide! Amen!
I believe one of the ways He will provide is by having you purchase this book from Kristyn Schott, “More Than Conquerors.” This book will give YOU the background for helping your loved one, your friend, maybe even – yourself. This book is inspired by God and is full of scriptural references to bring you, or the person you care about, out of this eating disorder and into a deeper relationship with God.
