Some 95% of eating disorder sufferers are girls between the ages of 12 and 25. The teen and college years are a crucial time for girls, when positive or negative views about their bodies often become manifest.
Written to eating disorder sufferers who are at this critical age, this book provides hope that, through faith and trust in God, they too can rise above the living death of eating disorders and arise as God?s daughters, full of life and with a promising future.
The author tells her personal story of struggling with and defeating her eating disorder. She shares about her overweight childhood, her family-directed diets, the thrilling sense of control she got when she lost weight, and her spiral into anorexia and bulimia. When she left home to go to college, she looked forward to being on her own but fell into even more destructive eating behaviors. After she was confronted by her loved ones and hospitalized, she began the recovery process that led to the day when she could at last eat a normal meal and feel that it was okay. She highlights her relationship with God and the security that eating disorder sufferers can find in God as their loving Father, the one who created them and loves them as they are.
Each chapter includes a prayer for the sufferer, asking God?s help. This book will help sufferers feel less alone, see the extreme results of uninterrupted eating disorders, understand and correct their wrong thinking, and learn to connect with and trust God while they are moving toward recoveryPublishers Description

|Inspiring. Nov 22, 2009|
|For anyone struggling with an eating disorder, or struggling to recover, I highly recommend this book. The author clearly illistrates her shared struggle, but in no way glorifies her struggle. There is a journaling component to the book, which is very useful for recovery and understanding one's eating disorder. This book is extremely encouraging.|
|Love ordering from Amazon!! Sep 22, 2009|
|This is a very good book on ana...easy to read and understand..the problem is discussed thoroughly and the character was interesting. She used her roots in Christianity to help with her problem..although she did not rely solely on it.|
I was extremely pleased with the processing of my order. Everything was done very professionally. Easy ordering and quick shipping!
|Easy reading Sep 21, 2009|
|Reads fast. Gives good insight into the extremes some of these poor women put themselves through. Good book. Would recommend.|
|Christian workbook for Anorexia Jan 6, 2009|
|This is not a novel to read. It is a Christian-based workbook for those suffering from Anorexia. That said, I think it would be a good workbook for those who are very Christian and trying to figure out if they are, indeed, suffering from Anorexia.|
|Religious Enough! Oct 7, 2008|
|Although my heart goes out to the author, this book was of no help to me. It is completely prayer based. Why buy a book if you can go to church or read the bible for free?|
