In the United States alone, around 30 million people will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. One of those 30 million people was Marion Reeves. Perfectly Imperfect chronicles Marion’s struggle with an eating disorder and depression.
Recovery from an eating disorder is a long, hard process full of ups and downs. While many people think that someone should be able to “get better” just by eating normally again, that is not the case. There is so much more to the process than just food.
Perfectly Imperfect shows how Marion was able to find freedom through relying on God, receiving help from professionals, and by being loved unconditionally by family and friends.
Her story reminds us of God’s unrelenting pursuit of His children and His faithfulness even in the darkest times.
