Spring Cleaning

*Starting fresh with eating clean on Monday
*Extra time on the treadmill to burn away last night’s feast
*Purging via vomiting

Are these ways you might be cleansing yourself? We all have different forms of cleansing ourselves. Some are more harmful than others. Some are more culturally acceptable than others. Read more on my new blog post below

Worship during Negative Emotions

New Blog Post featuring Mike OBrien!!
"I never heard my friend Josh sing a single note in his life until he was on his deathbed. A few weeks before he passed away he was singing the hymns of his childhood, even in his morphine haze. Our worship is never discounted. If we are not 100%, that is a perfectly acceptable to God. Jesus perfects our prayers."

Master Plans and Baby Steps in Recovery

Are you on par with Leslie Knopp when it comes to planning?

Have any of you pictured what recovering from your eating problems might look like and ended up somewhere completely different from what you expected?

Perhaps you were motivated and excited to receive a meal plan from your dietitian, but instead she chattered on about intuitive eating without giving you any concrete instructions.

The Fear of Lack in Eating Disorders

It’s a lack of trust in the body. It’s a fear of “not enough.” It’s an attempt to control, fight for what we need, and “take matters into our own hands.” This might not just be about food. This might be a little deeper…what do you think?

'To the Bone' walks fine line of depicting eating disorders

The article shares examples of how the film is being sensitive to the eating disorder population...trying to avoid numbers and prejudices. I'm glad they took some of these things into consideration.

We'll see on Friday how effective these precautions are for viewers!

washingtonpost.com Writer and director Marti Noxon struggled with anorexia and bulimia for 10 years. It’s her story, albeit a fictionalized version, that she tells in “To The Bone,” a feature film coming to Netflix on Friday about a 20-year-old artist whose eating disorder has reached a dire point. Lily Collins, who h...

"The protagonists in movies are typically very likable and oftentimes we want to be like them. Remember these are fictional characters. Remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, you have value as you are, and you were created to be you, and only you."

New post is UP about the new Netflix movie, To the Bone. There's quite a controversy surrounding the movie. I'm not hear to tell you whether or not you should watch it, but I will give you some important points to consider at www.recoveringwithgod.com

Tomorrow's the day my first blog post comes out! Horray!

I know the suspense if killing you...what's the name of the blog??

Recovering With God means walking with him in your struggles and using HIS strength to conquer and overcome your eating disorder. Does this mean you don't seek formal treatment? Absolutely not! God created treatment and therapists and dietitians and doctors, etc and gives them wisdom and compassion to walk with you as well.

Blog update: the topic of the new blog is about eating disorders and God. I want to make a space for you to meditate on god's truth as it relates to eating disorders.

More later!

What's the new project? It's a blog!

Details to come...

I'm back! And excited to be working on a NEW PROJECT that I'll tell you about soon!!

I haven't been posting much in the past several months because I've...sold a house, moved to Missouri, bought a house and had another baby! This is me with my 2 kiddos when the baby was just a couple weeks old.

I'm not starting the private practice back up quite yet, but I'll be communicating with you more in the coming weeks 😊
