If your life is out of control and you feel hopeless, you haven’t read this book yet. The seemingly insignificant desire to lose a few pounds can quickly become a powerful, addictive eating disorder. Maybe you’ve already tried to escape but failed. Or maybe you’re just now willing to admit that you have an eating disorder. Is there any hope for breaking free?

Author Nancy Alcorn says yes, you can find hope and freedom if you apply the principles in this book. Nancy combines deep compassion with practical knowledge, insight, and guidance from God’s Word. The lives of thousands of young women who have experienced the life-changing program of Mercy Ministries, which Nancy founded, are proof that these principles work.

As a father of two girls in their late teens, I certainly know what girls face today. I have watched Nancy Alcorn and Mercy Ministries bring hope and healing to struggling young women for many years – young women who are completely without hope. The Mercy for . . . series reveals the Mercy Ministries difference and offers great inspiration, hope, and a way to true healing for all who want to be free.

If you have a daughter, work with girls, or are a young woman struggling with these issues . . . you want to hear what Nancy has to say. It is sure to change your life.
