Twenty-nine years, 7 months, 14 days, and the battle still rages.
Jena Morrow has an eating disorder. It can kill her. Jena Morrow has a Savior. He came to give her abundant life.
This is not a polished tale of victory but an honest, true story of fragility. Hollow recounts Jena's daily struggle with anorexia and the God who is able and willing to reach down into the dirt. A central theme of Hollow is the surrender of control to Jesus Christ. His Word is interwoven throughout the story as rebuttals to the lies that besiege those engaged in any addiction.
In addition to her point of view, Jena includes those of her friends, family, and former therapists providing an undercurrent of hope.
Written in an easy conversational voice, Hollow will resonate with those in the midst of a struggle and those who stand beside them.
JENA MORROW chronicles her journey with an eating disorder in her debut book, Hollow (May 2010). She studied music education at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, and currently makes her home in Crest Hill, Illinois with her son. For more information, visit jenamorrow.blogspot.com.
