As a young woman, Sarah came to such a dark point in her life that all she could do was cry out to God. “I was overweight, depressed and felt very disconnected from God. My mother had done Weigh Down when I was younger, and I decided to try out the principles. My mom reconnected me at age 21 with the classes offered by Weigh Down Ministries.
“I decided to put everything I had into focusing on God, reading His Word and eating within hunger and fullness. I learned to look to God instead of turning to food for comfort. I found so much joy from turning to God for the emptiness in my heart instead of the food. As a result, I was able to lose 40 pounds!”
Sarah explains, “The concept of Weigh Down is absolutely amazing. Being obedient to hunger and fullness has to be done every single day. It is THE perfect way to stay connected to our Amazing Creator! I have so much further to go and so much to overcome. But I am beyond thankful for all the teachings and resources we have at our fingertips through this beautiful ministry.”
“Through taking the Change series, I was able to overcome greed, depression, self-focus, self-pity, jealousy, envy, over-drinking, and gained a TRUE PURPOSE for living! I have had the weight off for over four years now. I have so much JOY and ENERGY! I am truly at peace with God.
Sarah now resides in Brentwood, TN with her husband Dan Purdy. Dan also lost significant weight thru Weigh Down!
