I am recommending this book not just because it's written well--which it is. I am recommending it because the compassion and insight and vulnerability scattered throughout its pages have been excavated from places both deep and dark and have the power to change lives.
(Note: Getting to read the perspective of Mary's husband concerning her journey is a wonderful bonus as it powerfully illustrates the fact that sexual abuse never affects the victim only. Everyone who loves the victim is deeply impacted and most especially the spouse.)
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I already have plans to share this book with clients and use as a study guide for therapy groups focusing on sexual abuse.
Never has there been a book with such raw vulnerability, such honest courage and truth. It's like Mary stepped into your very soul & saw where you were hurting and spoke directly to that pain. A voice from experience. A voice that not only says healing is possible, but that it is on-going. Mary shows us that the unseen stain we feel has marked us for other predators, can be removed through the truth of Christ and healing can begin. She shows us that healing is fluid ~ that it's not a once and you're done event, but that it moves & changes as we begin our journey. New healing comes when we begin to trust, to forgive & find new joy & hope in Christ. Mary places the emphasis on the restoration healing of God, who is the lifter of our head. The redeemer, the one who chose us & called us His own. Mary shows us a Heavenly Father whose heart breaks when His child is abused. Who wants us to receive healing & wholeness.
Together, Mary & Patrick provide an invaluable resource for anyone dealing with the effects of sexual abuse, either personally, who loving someone who is walking that journey. They so tenderly & lovingly walk you step-by-step from brokenness to restored.
They bring you through forgiveness to living healed & full of Joy, through God's truths. This book is a must read for anyone.Read more ›
