In the summer of 2021, Grace signed a contract with Ambassador International for her first book Real Recovery: What Eating Disorder Recovery Actually Looks Like, which is set for release in early 2022.
In Real Recovery: What Eating Disorder Recovery Actually Looks Like, Grace shares the truths that she needed to hear during her recovery from anorexia nervosa. She wants young women to have realistic while still hopeful expectations for their recovery and to know that every small step that they take in the right direction—-whether in their physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual recovery—is significant. She also wants them to understand that recovery may take more time, energy, and effort than they expected but that recovery is still worth it.
Throughout the book, Grace draws on experiences from her battle with anorexia and her much longer recovery process that followed. She candidly shares her past and current struggles with her physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health related to her eating disorder. Instead of just offering tips for how to recover well, she shares the lies that she heard, the feelings that she wrestled with, and the unhealthy habits that God helped her overcome to attain a healthy lifestyle.
This book is purposely transparent and genuine, rather than cliché and feel-good, so it contains difficult but overlooked truths for young women who are dealing with eating disorders or eating disorder tendencies. Each chapter is titled with a false expectation that individuals with eating disorders often have about recovery, but each chapter also includes a “Real Recovery Expectation” that points individuals to more realizable expectations for recovery.
