About the Author
Sheryle Cruse began her journey through eating disorders when she went on her first diet as an overweight 7-year-old. She suffered through anorexia, bulimia, and yo-yo dieting until she was an 80-pound, 5’4” 19-year-old. After running the full gamut of eating disorder experiences, she found healing with the help of therapy, Christian community, and—most importantly—God’s patient love.
Now a poet living in St. Paul, Minnesota, she writes of the spiritual significance of eating disorders as a way of ministering to other sufferers. Her poems have been published in several journals and newsletters. She has also written several dramatic pieces that have been performed in churches and theaters in her area.
