Other credits include Chicken Soup for the Christian Woman’s Soul, Cup of Comfort Devotionals and Momsense Magazine. She also serves as president of the recently formed SistahFaith Communications, LLC.

Raped at the age of thirteen and a first-time mother at age fourteen, Marilynn was all too familiar with secrecy and shame. But after becoming a Christian and marrying a good man, she now encourages women to lay aside the shame of secrecy and shares a message of hope and healing.

I'm loving my SistahFaith. I am blessed to be a contributing writer of two stories included in SistahFaith. Confession is Good for the Soul and Amazed by Grace. I'm a proponent of Revelations 12:11, We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. As I'm reading through my sistahs' stories, I see that's yet another thing we all have in common. It feels like home! The masks are going, going, gone! Excuse me while I shout GLORY!!!!!

Finally! A book that women all over the world can relate to. Finally a book that I can relate to! No cover ups, no pretenses, just pure thoughts and words of the pains and joys of being a woman. I would recommend this book not only as a healing process but as a life long process in understanding that through brokeness comes restoration!

SistahFaith shatters the thoughts that we as women often have,which is to feel alone in our suffering. This book reaches out to us all in allowing us to surrender that thought process and to embrace that we are indeed not alone and we do not need to suffer alone. Rise up my sisters! Restoration is on the way!

Format: Paperback
Author Marilyn Griffith, along with other sisters, in search of sisterhood, healing, unconditional love and deliverance, have come together in SistahFaith to share their stories that glorify God, lift one another, and other women who will be encouraged and enlightened, and can ultimately experience all that God has for them divinely through their testimonies.

Each story in Sistah Faith is true, as these women of faith lay bear their hearts to help not just themselves, but other women who may have gone through what they have, or may be in the midst of the same pain...the truth is, they can experience triumph despite their horrific circumstances. Stories detailing the pain and the poetry that flowed beautifully within the chapters were wonderful and uplifting. The structure of each story was woven drawn from the Biblical character, Tamar. Readers are taken on a journey from the pain, the shame and the scars to forgiveness and healing.

The poem, Let Me Laugh, by Wanda J. Burnside asks the Lord to laugh no matter what we have been through or may be going through. Dr. Gail M. Hayes's chapter, Perfection, touched my heart, yet she shared how God intervened in her plans to end it all, comforting her with the promise that He will perfect all that concerns her. Stephanie L. Jones shared, What If... I Had Never Been Sexually Abused? It is not unusual to ask, "what if" questions, but God answered with love, forgiveness and His Word.

Sistah Faith begins with the search of sisterhood, something I believe most women consider to be valuable in their lives, and so Author Griffith takes us through the selection process, making suggestions so that we can experience God's precious deliverance together as sisters in Christ.

By K.Allen-Smith on January 7, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is a good book for any woman who has been living a life filled with pain or shame after experiencing abusive and traumatic encounters.

The stories of each woman reveals the depths of her suffering and healing path. Inspirational poems will bring to a safe haven where you can release your burden, be encouraged and continue on the path to enlighten your life.

With Sistahfaith, you are empowered to initiate a support system with other sistah survivors. You are not alone and don't have to go this road by yourself. In this sacred healing space you abide in the presence of others who have a common bond with you: being a child of God.

The most beautiful thing about this book is that scripture in all up in it. This is a wonderful confirmation that God seeks to heal you and free you from the burden of victimhood. Every sistah is invited!
