Sexual abuse is an extremely difficult topic to discuss. Whether you have survived it or know someone who has survived it, it can bring much in the way of challenges. Even after the abuse occurs, many men, women, and children walk around haunted by the event. It impacts their ability to trust, their ability to form relationships, their ability to love, and even their ability to live forgiven. They struggle with guilt and shame. They doubt themselves. They feel unworthy, disconnected, isolated. And so many just don’t know how to move forward.
Well, now there is hope for those who are willing and ready to heal.
Today marks the official launch day for Not Marked: Finding Hope and Healing After Sexual Abuse by Mary DeMuth.
Phone Tree Review: Not Marked: Finding Hope and Healing After Sexual Abuse is a powerful, heart-wrenching book that dares to tell a truth that needs to be talked about and heard. What DeMuth has done in this book is nothing short of courageous. She presents a survivor’s story with such clarity and authenticity, sharing hope and communicating grace to those still searching for understanding, deliverance, and unconditional love. This book is so uniquely done that it is hard to describe and yet it speaks in such a way that people will get it. I encourage those who are survivors, as well as those who love, live with, and/or know and care about survivors to read this liberating book.
