Honest Hope Oct 19, 2004
I read your book last week and it was very good! I was impressed not only with the undertaking of writing the book itself, but with the real, honest, open and straight forward way in which you talk about your struggles. It is an inspiration to anyone who struggles with an addiction of any kind. I don't often get to discuss bulimia with my patients because most young girls won't admit to it. But when I do find someone struggling with an eating disorder, especially if they are Christian, I will recommend that they read your book. Your personal journey of recovery, as the subtitle calls it, reads like a companion talking to the reader. I think this approach would be very helpful for a young person struggling to admit and accept their disorder to realize that it is a real problem, they are not crazy and there is hope. Thank you for the gift of sharing your story! I am certain many people will benefit from your courage.
Powerful story Oct 2, 2004
The author's story is powerful. Her struggling from the depths of despair and self-loathing to confidence and being able to help others is inspirational. Any man or woman fighting against an eating disorder should gain hope, strength and "techniques" for survival from this book.
amazing insights! Aug 16, 2004
I have struggled with an eating disorder for a long time and read many books on it, but this one really broke through to the core of my being. I'm going to read it over and over. It gave me a lot of hope and I think it'd help anyone with not only any addiction but just whoever is struggling to grow closer to God amidst life's "stuff".
