Overview

Whenever Christa Black looked in the mirror, she was waging a war with herself. Her hatred of her face and body drove her, as a young woman, into frantic overachievement, addiction, and an eating disorder that landed her in rehab. A preacher's kid, she'd grown up imagining God as a "thou shalt not" tyrant. It was only when she miraculously discovered God's unconditional love for her--physical imperfections, moral failings, and all--that she finally began to accept herself. As she tells her story, Christa shares the tools she uses to combat the self-rejection that harms so many people's lives.

In this raw testimony, Christa Black takes women on a step-by-step journey of faith and positive belief to reveal that if God loves ugly, then we can too.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Black, a violinist and singer who has toured with the likes of the Jonas Brothers, has written this brief memoir as a companion to her new album of the same name. Black writes with appealing, blog-like immediacy of her troubles with overachievement and an eating disorder, but there seems to be an underlying narcissism that her faith never touches. VERDICT Many fans of Christian music will enjoy this book, as will Black's followers.

I got the chance to meet Christa Black in person a few years ago, and she told us about this book. She also has a song under this same title that everyone should listen to.

This book has helped me deal with all of my internal struggles around food, body image, control, and depression. Christa was able to give a voice to all of my feelings and emotions that I've never been able to do before.
