Abuse, Forgiveness, And The Journey Into God’s Love
This story isn’t just my story; it is His. I am His!
I was born into a life of physical and sexual abuse, sadness, fear, depression, desperation, and hopelessness. With Jesus Christ, it became one of love, forgiveness, healing, freedom, and life eternal that began the day I met Him, but it has been a journey.
Even after I became a believer, I’ve wrestled with questions that still challenge and grow my faith.
- Does God really love me?
- Will I ever be able to trust Him?
- Is He really powerful—or really good?
- Is healing from so many years of painful abuse and suffering even possible?
The answer to all of these questions is a resounding yes!
The Lord has been writing His story in my spirit for many years. I am sharing it with you as an intentional act of worship of Him.
Love and hope and healing is found in Jesus. Not in the Christian religion. Not in the church. Only in the person of Jesus Christ.
My prayer is that, as you read about my journey, you will see Jesus and realize that He passionately loves you.
“Whether you’ve experienced the trauma of abuse, divorce, miscarriage, or the task to forgive the seemingly impossible, His will be a kind and gentle hand leading you to the Savior—the only place where true healing is possible.”
