What Others are Saying about Journey to Freedom from Eating Disorders
*I think this Christian eating disorder book is GREAT! The scripture references are really excellent – I love how each chapter in this Christian book is so focused on scripture, and you relate the words of the apostles and others in the Bible to one’s recovery so closely and so well. It’s really amazing. I also LOVE the “Love from Above” section of each chapter, and the prayers at the end, too.
Jen, former anorexic
*Your work is solid. I will be pleased to put this Christian book on the web resource list and will use some of it in my groups. Good job. May God bless your work in such a needed field.
Kimberly Davidson, MA, PCW, Pastoral Counselor, Coach, Author, Speaker – Olive Branch Outreach
*This Christian book on eating disorders is compassionate, real, and beautifully written as well as inspirational and moving. This book is absolutely amazing and powerful beyond words. From the time I opened the book, I could not put it down. The author, Laurie, who has personally overcome her own struggles with food offers every individual hope, and I also love the fact that Christian principles were incorporated into this because with God, everything is possible. I would recommend this book.

*This Christian book on eating disorders is very well written. I especially like how you give application questions and how you offer a personal twist by giving the “personal messages”. It gives more of a feel of someone walking along beside someone who is in recovery.
Stephanie Lampman, Restored by Love Ministries
*Laurie, your text in this Christian book is amazing! It has helped me (and continues to do so) through so much spiritually and personally. What you mention in regard to perfectionism, body image, the promising quotes from the Bible, and so forth gives me strength! I have your book on my mobile device, and look at it almost daily! “As God’s creation, be careful not to expect any more or any less from yourself than He expects.” This is a quote, by you, which I try and keep close to me each night. This ailment is indeed one that all mankind can horrifically bare, not just women. It is also one that can attack individuals of all ages and descents. However, with God’s help, anyone can defeat this demon! Thank you!
Joshua, recovering anorexic/bulimic
*This is no ordinary Christian book on recovery. Laurie Glass not only shares her experiences and struggles with anorexic behavior, but gives positive support to anyone with similar struggles. This Christian book is very in-depth yet also very readable. Laurie gives constructive and practical advice, all with a generous amount of prayer and biblical support. However, in order to benefit from this book, the reader needs to have the will and desire to change their lives, something the author encourages from the very early chapters in the book.
Written in Laurie’s personal style, the reader is given a sense of encouragement and a positive knowledge that they don’t have to go through the restoration alone. There is a lot of information yet it is not overwhelming. Some details of her memories in this book are astonishing and paint a vivid picture of her world in the midst of her battle to find self-acceptance and respect.
Laurie is clearly well-read in general and in this field in particular. Her delightful talent for poetry writing enriches this book in addition to her beautifully-worded prayers and personal messages to the reader.
If you want to find freedom without the fear of rejection, Laurie’s book is a great starting place. This Christian book can be read as daily or weekly readings by chapter.
