Hungry For Hope - Restoring Identity: 2009 Remuda Ranch Christian Conference on Eating Disorders

Those living with disordered eating and body image issues hear so many conflicting voices it is difficult to know what to believe. At times they may even wonder who they are. Their identity can feel lost in calories, numbers on the scale and habitual behaviors.
Additionally, as professionals trying to help these men and women, we may find ourselves experiencing much of the same confusion.
How do we help them recover a sense of who they are from a Biblical perspective?
Do we build self-esteem or rebuke dangerous behaviors and outright denial?
Do we encourage them to love themselves or practice self-denial?

As a Christian professional or ministry leader, you need a Biblical foundation to navigate through these issues.

Hungry for Hope: Restoring Identity
is a conference designed to equip you in the areas of body image and disordered eating with a special focus on the role of identity in recovery. Held June 3 - 5, 2009, this event will take place at historic Glen Eyrie, a Christian retreat center and home of Navigators in Colorado Springs.
