Starving is a memoir by Blue Egg Brown Nest founder, Christen Bensten.

Christen tells the difficult and intimate story of living in a constant state of fear, managing her anxiety and depression and what it took to find love and healing. Christen takes the reader through her childhood trauma and daily act of purging, growing up in a cult-like evangelical church, and the public punishments of the private school she attended where children were tied to their chairs. However, instead of caving into depression and the temptation of self-harm, Christen sought help and healing at all costs.

Christen Bensten is the founder of women-owned business Blue Egg Brown Nest/Furniture & Interiors blueeggbrownnest.com. She been published in The Washington Post , Cottage Living Magazine , Arlington Magazine , Romantic Homes Magazine , freshstyle Magazine and several other publications including the book publication of Southern Style. She has shared her YouTube Tutorials to millions of people on her Blue Egg Brown Nest Channel.

Christen is a mom of three, a writer, painter, avid reader and Jesus-lover.

She also fosters loads of homeless kitties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend
By K. Schultz on April 12, 2021
If you know Christen Bensten’s blog or her artwork, you know of her exceptional talents. This book is a raw and rare private look into her beautiful soul and a testament to the strength and vulnerability that brought her to be who she is today. I read this book and felt like I had experienced a deep and beautiful conversation with an old friend. A deep connection with someone based upon her brave decision to allow us to share this personal with her. If you are as impressed as I am with her abilities to paint, create and design... you will certainly not want to miss the beauty of her words. Highly recommend.
