When my friend Emily was your age, she struggled with a disorder called anorexia. Anorexia is an emotional disorder in which people become obsessed with losing weight, and they refuse to eat. As you know, we need nutrients from food to keep us healthy. If a body doesn't get nutrients, a person is at risk of dying, and this is what happened to Emily. Emily almost died.
See, Emily didn't feel good about herself, and she sure didn't feel beautiful. However, Emily fought against this disorder, and now, one of Emily's passions is educating others about anorexia and the beauty that comes from God.
Today, Emily agreed to a short interview.
As Christians, it can be tough walking the line between following God and living our day to day lives. Secular music (non-Christian music, in other words) and television are especially tough topics. It’s true that we must protect our eyes and ears from things that can harm us. After all, images and the spoken word can have a powerful impact on someone. But how do you know what to watch and what not to watch? What to listen to and what to tune out?
