In my mind,
80 pounds was too fat...
As a young girl, I hated my appearance. Becoming thin soon became an obsession to me, while food became a drug. Binging and purging became a vicious cycle and my parents were desperate for help so they enrolled me into Teen Challenge. It was here that working with God and staff, I truly decided to lay everything down.
Teen Challenge taught me how to work with God toward change and day by day I became more and more free from that vicious cycle. I began to see myself as God always intended, beautiful and whole in Him. I graduated the program and high school in November and I am now an intern. I am also pursuing my college degree but most importantly, I have been given the opportunity to give back to other girls who were just like me.
Thank you for all your support!
