Living by a moral standard, Stacha’s conservative, “good girl” lifestyle led her to suppress her struggle with same-sex attraction. The guilt and shame that came from concealing her sin eventually turned into an eating disorder and self-injury, as a means to control the state of her heart. While at The Village, Stacha learned that her greatest problem was not a moral failure but a failure to honor Christ.
