…but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. -Romans 12:2


The mission of Hungry Hearts is to provide Christ-centered support and biblical resources to women on their journey to recovery from eating disorders, chronic dieting and body image issues. Our hope is that each woman would experience victory in this area of their lives and become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

…but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Romans 12:2

Hungry Hearts seeks to fulfill this mission by providing:

  1. A Resource and Referral process that provides materials, resources, and  professional recommendations on disordered eating and related issues for individuals affected by disordered eating.
  2. A structured Support Group for women in recovery from eating disorders, chronic dieting and/or body image issues.
  3. A Peer Coach Program that matches women who are currently struggling with eating disorders, chronic dieting and/or body image issues with a woman that has recovered from a similar experience and have a heart to help other women through prayer, encouragement and empathy

Hope Statement:
“Hungry Heats is an answer to a prayer I never knew I had.  I had no idea what to expect from a support group, but what I have received is more than I could have ever asked or hoped for.  God has used this group in my life to show me what it looks like to be healed.  Being with other women who have shared similar experiences, who understand your struggle, who care for one another in a way no others can care, is such an amazing blessing.  Each woman bring something different to the group and through our shared experiences, we can celebrate successes, empathize with struggles, and encourage one another through prayer.  Hungry Hearts helps you to learn how to put on the Amour of Christ to fight the spiritual battle that rages within…” -excerpt from support group member’s testimonial about the ministry
