Overview

"This morning I feel rested—
ready to face the day…
I will BEAT this thing."

Millions of girls struggle with eating disorders. And most American women are unhappy with their bodies. Christie Pettit was one of them. Christie started college as a healthy, competitive athlete. But soon her perfectionism drove her to take fitness to the extreme. As she became more and more obsessed with what she ate and how much she exercised, thoughts about food and working out controlled her mind, her habits, and even her relationships. Christie was finally forced to admit that she was losing her battle with her own body. She was starving—but she didn't know it.

Empty recounts Christie's story through her personal journals, showing you how she turned to the Bible and counseling to find the strength and encouragement to overcome anorexia.

If you or someone you know might be struggling with anorexia, you'll find hope and great advice in Empty.
