What happens when “Deeper than the Diet” comes to life? According to Yunetta and Demetris, it turns into a weekend of reflecting and empowerment. Demetris and Yunetta both grew up in the church and understand all too well the deep trauma that is often masked by religion and faith. Their desire to take this message of hope and healing into a religious setting and provide practical strategies for how to move forward in healing process was realized.
During their week off of the podcast, Demetris and Yunetta had the privilege of speaking in Pittsburg at The Lighthouse Church. This was a 3 day weekend which included one night with the youth, another day with the women and their daughters and the final day with the entire congregation. During this powerful weekend, they spoke words of hope, self-encouragement and offered practical strategies to heal trauma and negative relationship with food. They even discussed the importance of knowing and acknowledging subconscious patterns within yourself and your relationships.
