Overview

She was a home-schooled pastor's daughter who wasn't allowed to dance or play with Barbie dolls. Her mother made sure there would be nothing that could tempt her daughter to be vain-or to contract an eating disorder. So she went ahead and got one anyway. At the age of nine, Emily Wierenga began to restrict her food intake, and by the time she was 13, she was so severely anorexic nurses were surprised she was still alive.

Chasing Silhouettes is the story of a broken family that finds healing through an eating disorder. It's the story of how even good Christians need redemption, and how eating disorders pervade all homes-even the seemingly perfect ones.

A unique resource, Chasing Silhouettes addresses the whole of the illness: physical, mental, emotional arid spiritual, offering shocking insight into the disordered eater's mind that no other book provides.

In addition to a stirring personal narrative, Chasing Silhouettes is comprised of advice from some of the nation's top eating disorder experts, sample prayers for when yours run out, as well as stories of others who've battled-and overcome-eating disorders.
