Whether we're aware of it or not, our minds, bodies, and souls often seek out what's comfortable. But is it true comfort we are seeking? The answer is so often no. We can be fooled into addictions to false comfort, which lure us away from living in a manner God intends.
Erin Straza has gone on a journey of self-discovery, awakening to her own inherent drive for a comfort that cannot truly fulfill or satisfy. In Comfort Detox she depicts her struggles with vulnerability and honesty, and shares stories of other women who are on this same path. Straza also provides practical insights and exercises to help you find freedom from the lure of the comfortable.
This detox program will allow you to recognize pseudo versions of comfort and replace them with a conviction to embrace God's true comfort. Discover the secret to countering the comfort addiction and become available as God's agent of comfort to serve a world that longs for his justice and mercy.

"Comfort Detox exposes the way our everyday complacencies keep us from seeing and responding to the needs of those both near and far. With compassion and conviction, Erin Straza shows us how we can and why we must break the habits that serve self rather than others."
—Karen Swallow Prior, author of Booked and Fierce Convictions
"Our obsessive pursuit of comfort may be the most acute and least diagnosed malady of North American Christianity. In Comfort Detox, Erin Straza helps readers imagine something more glorious—if also riskier—than a life insulated from interruption, inconvenience, and even anguish. I am grateful for her invitation to keep company with Jesus—and keep watch with a sorrowing world."
—Jen Pollock Michel, award-winning author of Teach Us to Want and Keeping Place
"Erin skillfully captures the nature of our addiction to comfort and its power and ubiquity in modern American life. Weaving personal narratives, Scripture, and practical advice, Straza shows how we can leave behind a worldly, desiccated vision of comfort for the true comfort of Christ."
—O. Alan Noble, assistant professor of English, Oklahoma Baptist University, editor in chief, Christ and Pop Culture
"In an age when the problems of the world are one keystroke away, never has it been so tempting (or so easy) to retreat into our cocoons of comfort. Never has it been more vital that we don't. In Comfort Detox, a simultaneously profound, personal, and practical book, Erin Straza invites us to live for something more than our own comfort—to discover the truer peace that comes from knowing the divine Comforter and extending his comfort to those in need."
—Hannah Anderson, author of Humble Roots and Made for More
"Filled with clear steps and encouragements, Straza's robust program will bring readers freedom and a renewed zest for life."
