“I cried for the little girl lost, I cried for the little girl that I was once, I cried for the little girls no one cries for. I also cried because I finally realized I’m not broken, I’m me. I love you for writing this book, as I truly didn’t realize it would impact and shake me to my core. You are not only a survivor, you are the light to show others they are too!” ★★★★★
“Great read! Ms. Swanson shares her private moments, fears, tears, joy and laughter in a way women can all relate to. Her perspective on her life and faith is from the heart. No one is perfect, but with faith, we can make it and maybe look back and laugh.” ★★★★★

“A beloved member of my family was involuntarily admitted to a psych facility after suicide attempt. She’s doing better, but still has her demons shes battling. I gave her Faith, Fat and Other F-Words. She called me crying saying she had felt so alone, til reading your book she felt connected to you & like she wasn’t crazy, that someone else had same thoughts, emotions. So I personally want to thank you again! Your words, raw feelings has helped my family open up & discuss some of her daily struggles!!!! In case you didn’t already know how amazing you are! You are helping others without even knowing! I love you so much more for that!!!”
