Abby Kelly is a Christian writer on all manner of topics relating the Christian faith. Her specific passion is offering encouragement, empathy and resources to women struggling with eating disorders.
Following a fifteen year battle with anorexia, including three inpatient stays and years’ worth of outpatient counseling, she finally found freedom from her eating disorder by the grace of Jesus Christ. Abby’s personal experience has opened the door for her to begin outreach to others struggling with eating disorders. She began her blog, Predatory-Lies, in 2008 and has a strong following. She recently started a YouTube video series to complement her upcoming book, The Predatory Lies of Anorexia: A Survivor’s Story. Within eight hours of its release, she had over 100 views. Abby has written very vulnerably on the topic of recovery from eating disorders. Her work has been published on Haven Journal, She Loves Magazine, Start Marriage Right and Believer Life. She is the managing editor of, as well as a contributor to FINDINGbalance’s blog.
Abby enjoys reading nonfiction and has been selected to provide advance book reviews for Waterbrook Multnomah Press and Icon Media Group as well as current book reviews for Moody Publishers and Influence Resources. She is an active member of the FaithWriter’s community, having been chosen as writer of the month earlier this year.
Abby has led numerous Bible studies at local churches, through Protestant Women of the Chapel and through an online program called Good Morning Girls.
Abby is married to an officer in the US Army, so her writing is seasoned by frequent change. Where ever she goes, she immediately gets involved in the community. Recently, she and her dog, Brave, were certified as a therapy team through Pet Partners. They enjoy visiting patients in hospitals and nursing homes as well as helping children practice reading both at school and in local libraries.
