I would like to encourage you to listen to a brilliant musician – Marie Miller! I’m sure many of you already know her, but just in case you don’t I wanted to share her music with you today.
I believe it’s exceedingly important to support artists who carry and present themselves with dignity and modesty. I couldn’t think of a better role model for young women then Marie in that regard. Marie comes from a wonderful Catholic family in Virginia. Marie began performing when she was eleven, performing at local churches and bluegrass festivals with her family. Marie is a complete musician that not only has an incredible singing voice, but also writes her own songs and plays multiple instruments. Curb Records recognized Marie’s potential and signed Marie to an artist and publishing deal. Their faith in Marie paid-off when her first single Cold enjoyed a four-month run on the Christian charts. She is now back and forth from Nashville, TN and Shenandoah Valley area Virginia.
Check out some of Marie’s amazing talent.

Pretty incredible huh?
During the past few days I have received several questions from young women about eating disorders and I really want to encourage you to listen to the following song by Marie. It speaks into the life of an eating disorder and the dignity that each woman has being created in the image and likeness of God. Marie describes beautifully how God is waiting for you to come to Him, so He can heal you. I want to encourage you to surrender all to our Father in Heaven, so He can transfer you.
If you can’t envision that, or if you don’t know how it will feel, let me tell you something that will be published in my book this winter. At my lowest weight in high school at 5 feet 8 inches I was 35 pounds lighter than I am today. The fact that I am alive today is a gift, it’s a miracle. The day I surrendered all to Him, is a day I’ll never forget. I can’t even compose a string of words to describe how scared I was when I did surrender it all over to Him. Was I going to gain 100 pounds? Blow up? What was this going to be like? No, none of that happened, He simply wanted me to be healthy and return to my pre-eating disorder weight.
What God has done with my life is mind-blowing to me. He wants to do that for you too. Take that first step, surrender your life to Him and let Him work through you. Tell Him you want to be the weight that He wants you to be. I know it’s so hard, but I’m vulnerable with you today because I desire you to have the same freedom. Listen to Marie’s song and let her words speak to your heart.
