A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

 JULIE ALLEN

Thank you all so much for your support of Mary Rose and our mission to help ALL bodies feel beautiful. At the heart of our boutique and our foundation is self-love and empowering women to finally see their worth and their beauty. We know that beauty does not come from a number on the scale or a clothing size. It comes from your eyes. Your ability to have overcome and your ability to keep going. We are all fighting a battle and I encourage you to be thankful for your struggle because in the end, we cannot know joy without having known pain.

My book, "The Courage to Hope" has officially launched! I dive into my 15 year struggle with anorexia/bulimia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder all while giving the reader a clear pathway on how I was able to recover. How I was able to finally find the Courage to Hope. 

Thank you all again. And please, if you are struggling, know that you are not alone and you are worthy. Just as you are. You deserve your own love, acceptance, and compassion.

FINDING COURAGE

Love your scars; they have made you beautiful. Love your flaws; they are what make you unique. You are beautiful beyond measure, and you deserve to feel that way. The Courage to Hope is my story of how I overcame. My goal in writing it was not only to share my struggles with an eating disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, self-injury, and rape but also to provide tangible pieces of advice on how to overcome such obstacles.

Everyone has a story. This is mine.
