In today’s image-driven, social-media saturated culture, our kids face a tough battle for a healthy body image and relationship with food. Our own family encountered the destructive force of eating disorders in a painful way. We’re excited to welcome Jennifer Lane to the podcast today. Her expertise and her own personal story give great hope to families facing the struggle of disordered eating:  “It was like God turned on a light on in a dark room and showed me the fundamental lies I had been believing since I was a small child, that had only gained momentum as experiences fed the lies. I was able to see that they were lies and was able to replace them with the truth of his Word… The veil had been lifted.”   Jennifer Lane helps us to understand: The risk factors and causes of eating disorders for our kids. The spiritual, emotional, and physical sides of disordered eating. How to recognize an eating disorder in your child’s life. How a parent can support their child with an eating disorder. How dads can affirm their daughters and build them up. The power of God to set our children totally free from eating disorders. How Jennifer’s personal journey with an eating disorder led to an impactful ministry to girls and women who struggle. For more on this topic, you can find a recent article here on our blog.

Meet Your Host
Rob and Joanna have celebrated over 30 years of marriage and are the parents of two sons and three daughters. They share an addiction to coffee, bookstores, and Christmas music. They debate whether two dogs are enough and who should win “The Voice” every season. Rob and Joanna are a neat-freak married to a mess, an explorer to a homebody, and an introvert to a ‘people person.’ But they do agree that their vows are for always, children are a gift, and prayer is powerful.

Over the years, the Teigens have lived in five states as they made their way to West Michigan. Serving as foster parents, marriage mentors, small-group leaders, and authors, they are passionate about helping couples and moms and dads experience the power of God in their families. They look forward to meeting you here, supporting your pursuit of God and the hearts of your loved ones. They can’t wait to grow together with you.
