• Are You a Member of The Chubby Church?

    Answer the questions below to see if The Chubby Church is worth your time and energy.

    Have you tried diet after diet only to still struggle?

    The Chubby Church addressed weight and eating from a holistic perspective to support your body, soul, and spirit. It is NOT a diet book. It is a book you can use with any nutrition and fitness plan for maximum results. Chapters such as Chubbology help us understand weight and eating psychology. For example, if we don't feel safe in our souls, we will use weight to self-protect or we will create drama in the form of a cycle dieting behaviors.

    Have you lost and gained more than 20 lbs more than once in your life?

    If you've struggled with weight for many years, from childhood, or for along time in adulthood, there are factors at work that are not your fault including the Standard American Diet of processed foods. While this book is not a diet, it does support the art of being healthy for life. In the past, diet books missed real realities that face those of us who have struggled for many years. Both books address overcoming permanently to release the weight for good, for life. If you've had gastric bypass or have done other things it's time to deal with the soul in the matter of weight loss.

    Are you embarrassed by your eating behaviors?

    Emotional eating, binge eating, or doing weird stuff with food like hiding it from your spouse or family further promotes shame and guilt in our lives. We can end this cycle by getting Emotionally Fit! Jendayi shares how to really end emotional eating that's based on past trauma and heal the Inner Glutton within using her 5 Step Emotional Fitness Workout. This workout helps so you can't eat the same if even you wanted to! And more importantly, heals the reason you used food to stuff down emotions in the first place.

    Are you at risk for diabetes, heart disease, or cancer?

    Millions of people are being diagnosed with chronic diseases every day. 117 million Americans have at least one chronic disease, many have two. Sadly, many diseases are preventable with proper body stewardship and adherence to God's Life Abundantly Standard over the Standard American Diet. You'll learn how to Habitize Body Stewardship to increase your chance for freedom from disease!

    Are you plagued with constant self-criticisms about your body image?

    Did you realize that the first attack on our identity is through the body? Body image concerns proceed poor eating! And studies show that those who obese or worry about their weight, are more likely to be overweight or obese in years to come. Our unique looks and features are a gift from God that we must embrace for our best healing. More depth on this topic in Book 2, but build the foundation in Book 1. Many Chubby Church members, aren't chubby just mentally bound to weight, food, body image, or eating frustrations.

  • Prevent Unnecessary Health Problems

    Stats and Facts to Motivate You to Get Knowledge [Hosea 4:6]

    38.9% of Americans are Obese

    Americans struggle with weight and eating like never before. This stat is worse for African American females and growing for all children. God is using weight and eating struggles to heal the whole person in Body, Soul, & Spirit.

    20% More Overweight

    People who attended church were more likely to be 20 percent more overweight than non-church members. By all means we need to attend church, but we also need to deal with our eating behaviors and problem foods because it's costing unnecessary prayer lines and lives.

    16% vs 70% God to Man made foods

    16 percent of our plates is what God said to eat in Genesis 1:29. We fail to eat whole, clean, sun-raised foods and we're seeing the fruit of it in poor health, low energy, and early death. 70 percent is processed or highly processed foods.

    Obesity Likelihood increased by 50%

    Young adults who attended Bible study weekly increased their chances of obesity by 50 percent. We need the Word of God, but we also need grow in Body Stewardship and better food choices. There is great confusion around food and what to do with health. The Chubby Church Books 1 & 2 clear up this confusion.

    95% of Dieters Regain Weight

    Diets don't work. The Dieter's Mindset is a form of bondage. When we start and stop diets we don't actually create lasting change. Health happens inside out and over time. Our mindset can be elevated with the Freedom Mindset to support real health transformation and lifestyle change.

    117 million Americans

    Americans are the sickest and heaviest we've ever been. 117 million suffer from at least one chronic disease with pricey prescriptions that create more problems. We're struggling with health care costs, Obesity is $147 billion alone. Yet, an estimated 40 to 95 percent of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity is preventable.

    Excerpt from Introduction to The Chubby Church Book 1

    Why I Relate to Moses

    I flipped on the television to the Day Star network. The anointed Bishop T. D. Jakes of The Potter’s House Church in Dallas was preaching. The next thing I knew I jumped out of bed and started praising God, like never before.

    Overtaken by the glory of His presence in my bedroom, I fell to my knees with my arms spread wide.

    “Hallelujah!” all of my heart, mind, and soul yelled out, in adoration. “Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!” A hundred times.

    The Lord had spoken to my spirit. He said, “You are called to lift the bondage off the people and establish the kingdom of God.”

    My soul vibrated as glory intensified in the atmosphere. A powerful surge of His Spirit moved through me, and it held my arms in the air. TV church was still on in the background, but a full-on revival was happening right there in my bedroom in Denver, Colorado.

    I felt the call. I felt it in every fiber of my body. I was called to lift bondage! My purpose of why I was here on the earth, why I had read countless books on psychological growth, and why I went through deep healing and agonizing pruning to heal my past, my character, personality, and my pain like my life depended on it. Why I’ve been trained in a wide variety of areas in life like health, business, finance, family, single life, and marriage. And why I have testimonies for days on end.

    Now, it all made perfect sense why anyone would have to do that depth of soul work. It was because I’m a believer on a mission to equip the body of Christ with practical and psychological wisdom. I’m to provide practical strategies and advice to do life in Christ well.

    I knew my calling would manifest itself as an author to write books that help free people from their bondages—all kinds of bondages. But I had to start by overcoming my own biggest, hardest, most grueling, and primary battle—the one I call Weight and Eating Bondage.


    This inkling to write was already in me. But like when the Lord called Moses to free the children of Israel out of their Egypt, I too felt incredibly inadequate, flabby, and not good enough. I relate to Moses because I’m far from perfect, but my answer is always, “Yes, God!”

    As you turn the pages of this book, know that I care deeply and resonate with the struggle with food, body image, weight gain, dieting, and binge eating.

    I know what it’s like to feel absolutely hopeless that my weight would ever change, that my mind would be forever held hostage by its obsession with my next meal, or that I’d ever really like kale. I know what it’s like to be a slave to food, a slave to cultural body image, a slave to the scale’s report, and a slave to fear.

    You too are an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb and the testimony of Jesus Christ (Revelation 12:11). Are you willing to do what it takes to overcome your weight and eating battle for good? Will you commit to your freedom? Just go ahead and tell the Lord, “Yes!”
