Lake Mary, FL – In their first-ever, jointly authored book, Breaking the Stronghold of Food, Michael and Nancy Brown share the inspiring, practical, and humorous story of their journey from obesity to vibrant health. They skillfully take aim at the unhealthy American diet that so many have become addicted to, and they offer a new approach to a healthy lifestyle.
Their story began in July 2012 when Nancy braved the journey to her bathroom scale to discover that at 5’2” she weighed 195 pounds. She decided to completely change her lifestyle, and she started eating a healthy, plant-based diet. One year later Nancy was 114 pounds, which was less than she weighed in high school.
Subsequently in August of 2014 Nancy’s husband, Michael, had a similarly life-altering revelation when he weighed in at 275 pounds. Less than eight months later, after he began a new lifestyle of eating a healthy, plant-based diet, he weighed 180 pounds and had lost more than ten inches around his waist. Both Nancy and Michael have radically changed their lives and now share a passion to see others do the same.
“I’m not talking about some kind of dieting gimmick or fad,” Michael Brown writes. “I’m talking about transforming your life and totally changing how you relate to food. I’m talking about being a disciple when it comes to eating, about taking on a whole new way of living—a wonderful way. And the great thing about it is that when you make the change and renew your mind and reprogram your habits, you won’t feel deprived at all. You’ll thrive.”
In this insightful and encouraging book the Browns cover topics such as:
· Setting your sights on the goal
· Reprogramming your mind
· Holiness principles for wholesome eating
· Ten recommendations for a healthy lifestyle
“Yes, food strongholds are powerful, but isn’t the power of the Spirit greater than the power of doughnuts?” Michael Brown asks. “Isn’t the life of Jesus inside of you—the life of the resurrected Son of God—greater than any food addiction? When God says you are an overcomer in Him, yes, even more than a conqueror, doesn’t that include victory over potato chips?
Michael L. Brown is the founder and president of FIRE School of Ministry, a leadership training institute birthed out of the fires of revival that is called to equip authentic and devoted disciples of Jesus. With a PhD from New York University in Near Eastern Languages and Literatures, he is recognized as one of the leading Messianic Jewish scholars in the world today. He hosts the nationally syndicated daily talk radio show The Line of Fire and is the author of more than twenty-five books, including The Real Kosher Jesus and The Grace Controversy.
Nancy Brown came to faith in Jesus as a nineteen-year-old Jewish atheist. She and Michael have been married since 1976 and are the parents of two children and four grandchildren. A great lover of nature and photography, Nancy is known for her clear and direct communication and her uncompromising spiritual standards. Michael credits her with being the number one influence in his life outside of the Lord Himself.
Breaking the Stronghold of Food is available now at all major retailers, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, Christianbook.com and local bookstores.
Lacey Buchanan's 'Through the Eyes of Hope' Debuts January 10, 2017

LAKE MARY, Fla., Nov. 1, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- From a combined birth defect so rare only 50 other cases exist in the world, Christian Buchanan was born without eyes. Now, in her new book, Through the Eyes of Hope, Christian's mom, Lacey Buchanan, tells the gripping story of how God helped two parents see the worst circumstances radiate with glory.
"When we choose to love others despite their differences, we glorify God in His creation," Lacey says. "Instead of hearing people say, 'I'm sorry,' as if Christian had died, I want to hear, 'Congratulations! Christian is learning to survive and thrive in this world.'"
Married to her childhood sweetheart at 21, and pregnant at 23, Lacey was a joyful expectant mom. Working in rural Tennessee, she also was about to start her first year of law school in Nashville.
Then Christian arrived, diagnosed with Tessier cleft lip and palate, a syndrome in which a baby's skull fails to knit together in the womb. Most visible were his severely cleft palate and missing eyes.
For his first four weeks, Christian's parents visited him in the neonatal intensive care unit. When he finally came home, all life intensified. Work, school, care for a severely challenged son, and a labyrinth of medical and insurance complexities also strained Lacey and Chris' marriage.
Meanwhile the Buchanans fielded remarks from well-meaning but uninformed friends, rudeness from strangers, and the vile comments of Internet trolls on Lacey's Facebook page.
The low point, as Lacey relates in Through the Eyes of Hope, was a woman's post: "You are selfish for letting him live just so you could have a baby. You are a pathetic excuse for a mother. He will have a miserable life."
On the contrary. Doctors worked wonders on Christian's cleft palate, and today he thrives at the Tennessee School for the Blind. Christian is a joy to his parents and inspires the millions around the world who follow his story.
"The most crippling disease is ignorance," Lacey says. "One day when Christian is old enough, I'll say to him, 'I loved you too much to give up on you. I love you too much now to give up on you. You are an amazing person who God chose to be my son, and I am thankful.'"
Through the Eyes of Hope is the arduous but uplifting journey of Lacey, Chris, and Christian-the years of medical procedures, battles with an often-indifferent health system, unexpected kindness and help, a viral video with six million views, a healed marriage, and most of all the unfailing love of parents for their child and God for His children.
"God doesn't guarantee a trouble-free life or a stress-free marriage," Lacey says. "But our experience has taught us that when life takes a dramatic turn, He is unchanging, even in the worst of circumstances."
From Charisma House publishers Through the Eyes of Hope debuts January 10, 2017.
