Healing Anorexia: Learning Acceptance by Embracing God's Love

 

"For someone not familiar with anorexia, this book opened my eyes to the struggles and emotional burden that anorexic girls and women are facing.By sharing her own story, the author helped me to realize how emotionally fragile are even the children who grow up in a good family environment. And how easy it is to damage the emotional balance of a self-confident child, with drastic effect on her well-being and adult life. Yet, this book is a proof that anorexia can be healed with self-love and the right support...turning the tough experience into a powerful lesson learned that enriches the person's life. A great read for those who deal with anorexia, or know someone who does. Also for parents, to understand how even a gesture, word or small phrase can damage the self-confidence of their own children."

"Healing Anorexia is a remarkable book with a profound perspective. While many books focus chiefly on the throes of an eating disorder, Kandi’s offers something different, and that’s a shift in perspective. Are you viewing yourself through a dirtied lens, handed down to you by a society that’s driven by vanity and self-image, or are you viewing yourself through the lens of perfection, the lens through which God sees you and created you?

 

As someone who has recovered from anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, I relate to not only what Kandi is sharing her personal struggles, but also to how she has found peace with herself through the lens of who God says she is, who we all are. Regardless of how you define your eating habits, learning to embrace this perspective is critical to having a healthy relationship with food, with yourself, and with your body. The insights Kandi is sharing in this book apply themselves even further, beyond food, and into overall self-image:  Who are you in the world? How do you see yourself? When you begin to change the way you think about yourself, you will find that the rest of your world changes as well.

 

So no matter what you’re struggling with right now, take a gander at these pages and see what value they might have to add to your life. You might be surprised at what it sparks in you!"-
