From the introduction: “Weightless is not only for women like me who have faced an eating disorder but for any woman who is trying to spackle God-shaped holes with thinness, physical beauty, youth, or food.”
Even though I’m currently reading about half a dozen books, I dove right in as soon as I’d opened the box. Is there anything better than a new book? Oh yes, reading new words from a dear friend.
Isn’t that cover just delicious? I’m in love with it. Even more though is the book itself. I’ve known Kate online through her blog and in email conversations and I was granted the great joy of meeting her in person in April when she came to Massachusetts for Mom’s Day Away. Kate’s friendship has been a great blessing in my life. I think her words here will bless many, many women.
I’ve never had an eating disorder and I think I’ve generally got a pretty healthy body image. But I do have scars from my own battles with body image. i suspect that we are none of us unscathed in our womanhood. All of us bear these wounds. Kate shows us where to find the balm we need to heal those wounds.
