Hey friend! Is it hard to put down your phone, even when you realize you’re numbing out? Is distraction really a bad thing? And what can we do to get back on track after it’s gone too far?
Today’s episode is a great conversation with author Amy Seiffert about all the things we consume that are filling our minds but starving our souls. Amy and I get super practical in our discussion on how we can replace spiritual junk food with things that will nourish the center of who we are.
Listen in as we talk about:
Amy Seiffert is a speaker and author of two books, including her latest, Starved: Why We Need a Spiritual Diet Change to Move Us from Tired, Anxious, and Overwhelmed to Fulfilled, Whole, and Free. Amy lives with her husband and their three children in Ohio.

“I will be consuming and taking in various things but it is starving my soul. We need a spiritual diet change.”
“How often because of the noise and the distractions, we can’t even hear what God might be saying.”
“Start with silence and put the phone down. Practice looking outside and sitting there and not producing or pushing just letting yourself be loved.”
“What would it look like to take a whole day and everyone you encounter, you practice saying to yourself, “I see an image bearer.” You begin to restore dignity, value, and worth to every person in front of you.”
“It is a small shift but that very small shift is going to have a phenomenal impact on our spiritual health, emotional health, and mental health.”
“What would it look like every time we meet to think in your brain when I show up part of my job in our community is to encourage?”
