The ‘B’ Word
by Katrina Wilkie
A young woman’s struggle from the torment of Bulimia to freedom in Christ
The ‘B’ Word is the story of a young woman’s struggle with an eating disorder known as Bulimia. As she fights a losing battle, her determination and strong will both sustain and start to wreck her.
Through circumstances Louise can’t ignore, she is introduced to the idea of God being the ‘great healer’. Is Jesus the answer to her getting well? It seems to Louise that she is the only one in the church who isn’t perfect, so it’s unlikely Jesus would want to know about her.
Louise also faces some other complications in the return of an old boyfriend, and a best friend who seems to have it all.
The ‘B’ Word is my story. I’ve written it down for you, so you can read the words I most needed to hear. Beautiful one, don’t give up. There is hope. There is healing and a whole new life for you that is yours to claim. This nightmare you are going through is not your forever. Just hold on and take one tiny step at a time.
