Product Description

Millions of girls struggle with eating disorders. And most American women are unhappy with their bodies. Christie Pettit was one of them.

Christie started college as a healthy, competitive athlete. But soon her perfectionism drove her to take fitness to the extreme. As she became more and more obsessed with what she ate and how much she exercised, thoughts about food and working out controlled her mind, her habits, and even her relationships. Christie was finally forced to admit that she was losing her battle with her own body. She was starving--but she didn't know it.

Empty recounts Christie's story through her personal journals, showing you how she turned to the Bible and counseling to find the strength and encouragement to overcome anorexia. If you or someone you know might be struggling with anorexia, you'll find hope and encouragement in Empty.

Publisher's Description

More than five million adolescent girls struggle with eating dis-orders, and more than 80 percent of American women are unhappy with their bodies. Christie Pettit knows these statistics firsthand. As a college student with a tennis scholarship, she found herself eating less and less, compulsively exercising, and spiraling downward in a dangerous battle against anorexia. She was starving--but she didn't know it.

Now with a two-color interior, Empty recounts Christie's gripping story, incorporating new statistics, reflections from her journal, and biblical insight. Her candid retelling of her experience shows the spiritual dimension of eating disorders and describes how Christie turned to the Bible as a source of strength and encouragement to help her overcome anorexia.

Pastors, parents, counselors, and those battling anorexia--especially teen girls--will find hope and wise counsel in Christie's compelling story.

    This review was written for Empty: A Story of Anorexia.
    I read this book as a nightly devotional with a teenage girl with anorexia. Christie's book exposed/challenged the lies that those with eating disorders are controlled by and gave us hope for full recovery. Christie uses her original journal entries and then explains what was going on, the good and the harmful; many times, it was as if Christie had written what was going on in my friend's life. Scripture is used to encourage and challenge but does NOT overwhelm, so everyone should enjoy reading this book.

    This review was written for Empty: A Story of Anorexia.
    This book is about how an athletic girl fell into anorexia & recovered. It is very readable, scriptural, & helpful. It would be especially helpful to those in a similar scenario - to the anorexic & those who love her.
