    I noticed that you didn't have any content under eating disorders or self harm… I have a ministry called Everything Beautiful http://www.everything-beautiful.net that has some resources and info on it. The ministry is all focused on how women and girls see themselves. I would love for you all to post the link if you would like to use it. My email is ashley@everything-beautiful.net

  2. I read "Every Heart Restored" (A Wife's Guide to Healing in the Wake of a Husband's Sexual Sin) when I was single with a group of women and still pulled TONS from it. Hurt + sin happens, I'd recommend it to any woman! http://www.amazon.com/Every-Heart-Restored-Healin

    When I was recovering from my eating disorder, I found this book (http://www.amazon.com/Life-Without-Ed-Declared-Independence/dp/0071422986) to be practical, encouraging and extremely helpful.

      Jenni Schaefer is a good friend of mine, Laura, and has been a great encouragement to me. I am a recovered anorexic, and have written a book with my family which just released, called Chasing Silhouettes: How to help a loved one battling an eating disorder (www.chasingsilhouettes.com). Bless you, e.

    • Hey Natalie,

      I've been researching resources on this topic for a while & sadly there are few out there. BUT there are some out there!
      What type of resource are you looking for mainly? Book, sermon, article, blog, etc?
      I might be able to help you find something that's helpful for you.

      Blessings,
      Courtney

    No Stones by Marnie C. Ferree is a phenominal book for recovering sex addicts

  8. Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life by Emily P. Freeman for basically ANYONE. Totally changing my life. Basically for anyone who feels/acts like they have to earn grace (which would then make it not grace) or struggles with where the line between "God does the change in you" and "You have to work at it" is.

    Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    Please please add a section on Sexual Assault and Trauma.

    One excellent book is call Rid of My Disgrace by Justin and Lindsay Holcomb.

    The Resurgence has some good resources too.

      I wholeheartedly agree – that section is needed, and that book by the Holcombs is SO powerful and helpful. I would strongly recommend it to anyone.
