The Joy {Eating Disorder Testimony, Part 4}

“You need to know your identity in Christ.” The moment I heard those words proved to be life changing.

Welcome!

Welcome!

Hello, friend, and welcome! I am so glad you're here! One day after teaching a Women's Bible Study, a woman approached me and said, "This might sound weird, but can we be friends?" I actually didn't think it was weird at all; I had wanted to be her friend as well! Soon thereafter we met for coffee and shared our stories: our testimonies of coming to know the Lord, what He has done in our lives...
