For twelve years my life was dictated by a standard of perfection and by the eating disorder that had claimed and controlled my life. Three years ago I started recovery for my eating disorder and I cannot begin to describe how much more abundant and filled with joy my life has become. I used to struggle everyday fighting this battle with Ed (my eating disorder) but I have and am learning how to live a life not dictated by my disorder. In short, I am now living a life of freedom. I was saved by grace and now I am learning to live a life of grace, which also means having grace on myself. My prayer is that this blog will be an encouragement and provide hope to those whose life has been inflicted with this pain. To those reading let me say there is hope and I am only beginning on a path towards a life filled with grace, hope and joy.
