"What if your hunger pangs aren't about physical hunger at all but an invitation to develop a spiritual appetite for God? If food is your trigger, this is your opportunity!"--WENDY SPEAKE, author of The 40-Day Sugar Fast


"Whether ministering to moms who are easily triggered with their kids, or encouraging husbands and wives who are triggered in their marriages, Amber Lia faithfully has reminded us that TRIGGERS = OPPORTUNITIES! And now (cue the confetti) Amber challenges us to consider our food triggers, because triggers = opportunities here too. Each time we are tempted to turn to food as our comfort or reward is an opportunity to remember Jesus' invitation: 'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.' What if your hunger pangs aren't about physical hunger at all but an invitation to develop a spiritual appetite for God? If food is your trigger, this is your opportunity!" 

Wendy Speake, author of The 40-Day Sugar Fast and coauthor of Triggers: Exchanging Parents' Angry Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses

"Rather than a quick fix or trendy fad, Food Triggers goes deeper, all the way down to our why. Are you looking for real change? This book will help you start on a lasting journey toward health, inside and out."

"Food Triggers is a must read for anyone who is looking to uncover why they struggle with weight loss and food issues. This book is encouraging, motivating, and will help you discover ways to have a healthier relationship with food so you can live longer, have more energy, and look better."

Dr. Magdalena Battles, Doctor of Psychology 

"Amber's guidance and spiritual support has allowed me to get my life back!"

Janie C., client

"Food Triggers covers many of the mindset and spiritual struggles that Kiersten and I battled when we both had over a hundred pounds to lose. If there's one thing we know, the truth, the practical help, and the spiritual encouragement in these pages is going to help set people free!"

Nick and Kiersten Lavallee, certified health coaches

"Amber is the friend and guide you want as you journey into a healthier life. And this is the book you want on your shelf--within reach when the celebrations, failures, and stresses of life tempt us to turn toward food. There is a better way, and Amber gently leads us to it."
