I hadn’t eaten in weeks. Then I read your blog and it gave me the resolve to fight again.
I was going to take my life that night. I found myself online and stumbled across your website. I read every blog post on there and was in tears the whole time. I had never heard about how much I was loved or wanted until I read your posts. I didn’t take my life that night. Made in His Image saved my life.
Maura, you are my hero in working towards recovery from my eating disorder. God is truly working through you and I am so grateful. I honestly don’t think I would still be here if it wasn’t for your inspiring story and great love for all women to see their true beauty.
My mom and I have both struggled at some point with disordered eating, as I believe so many women do, and when you’re in it, it’s such a dark place to be. Thank you for your work and the love and hope you are sharing with so many.

“Forgiveness has nothing to do with absolving a criminal of his crime. It has everything to do with relieving oneself of the burden of being a victim—letting go of the pain and transforming oneself from victim to survivor.”
Our Core Values
As so many women struggle to see hope amidst the darkness and suffering they are experiencing, we want Made in His Image to be a beacon of hope for those who have lost it.
It’s common for victims of abuse to remain in a mindset that they are, and always will be, a victim. While any former harm done is a reality, at Made in His Image, we hope to instill in women the courage to live a flourishing life by confronting the many challenges they face.
Overcoming any obstacle takes perseverance. It takes real courage, raw vulnerability and true honesty, and we desire to cultivate and nurture that spirit in all women.
