Table for Two is the redemptive, compelling, and personal journey of a husband and wife navigating the bondage of an eating disorder to find increased freedom because of God’s grace and his Word. Individuals suffering from an eating disorder—and loved ones walking alongside them—will find practical help, hope, and encouragement in David and Krista Dunham’s story.
Krista Dunham suffered from an eating disorder for over ten years and, by God’s grace and through biblical counseling, overcame it. In Table for Two, she shares her experience, describing what she did, what she needed, and what proved helpful in changing. In conjunction with her insights, David shares what he did, how he failed, and what he learned along the way as a biblical counselor that proved helpful to Krista.
Those suffering from an eating disorder often feel crazy and misunderstood. They struggle feeling alone, afraid, and ashamed to tell those closest to them. Their loved ones also feel helpless and ill-equipped to care for them. Within this dynamic, hurt, disappointment, and neglect often thrive.
By providing information about eating disorders, adding personal narratives, and including interactive exercises for helpers and those suffering from eating disorders to do together, Table for Two fosters a sense of community and compassion for struggling families. This powerful, inspiring book reveals an intimacy beyond personal stories of struggle told through a biblical counseling lens; it highlights the close-knit relationship of husband and wife and a home life where one person struggles with an eating disorder.
