Writing: Lee’s book Table in the Darkness – A Healing Journey Through an Eating Disorder was released in November 2013 (and has hit the Amazon Best Seller List many times) in the Crescendo line of books by InterVarsity Press. Lee writes frequently at Finding Balance and at her blog on Gurze.com. Lee hopes to eventually publish her second book called True Companion, which is co-authored by her husband of eighteen years, Chris Blum. Chris, a high school strength and conditioning coach and personal trainer, was a keynote speaker at the National Eating Disorder convention in 2009 and served on the advisory board for the National Eating Disorder Association. Chris and Lee are frequently asked to speak at conferences together sharing their inspirational story. They are writing True Companion together sharing their struggles and joys along the journey of Lee’s recovery targeting the book to husbands, spouses, and loved ones of those struggling with an eating disorder. Lee’s third (un-published) book is titled Yes. There is Hope.- A survival guide for those struggling with an eating disorder.
