Program #3552 "Ellie McBride" Sunday, February 10, 2019
3552 “Ellie McBride” (Eating Disorder, Abuse, Depression) At an early age, Ellie witnesses the brokenness and violence of her parents’ relationship. Her mom’s next boyfriend is no better and Harvey cruelly abuses Ellie and her siblings; forcing them to dress in such a way they get made fun of and complete hours of work without letting them shower. She is eager to escape to high school and college, but it is at university that the failure of her family catches up with her. Ellie is drowning in despair, losing a battle with her eating disorder and barely keeping up at school. Through the persistent love of two Godly women, she eventually comes to know God and begin a path toward healing.
