Sarah Shaw looked in control of her life. She had a successful career as a manager in retail business. But she came to a point when she could no longer keep up appearances, by controlling her tormented inner world. So explosive was her inner pain, and so damaged was she by the consequences of childhood abuse, that she was eventually put on a lifetime’s incapacity benefit. Her consultant psychiatrist was at a loss how to help. This story is not, however, about the horrors of abuse, but is an extraordinary testimony to the triumph of God’s healing love.
So many abused, hurting people are stuck in the tormenting symptoms of guilt and self-hatred, multiple fears, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, eating disorders, and even self-harming and suicidal tendencies.
This book is a powerful story that has emerged from a background of extreme abuse and journals Sarah’s road to healing.
The author writes:
“So many abused, hurting people don’t understand their brokenness. They are stuck, as I was, in the tormenting symptoms of guilt, self-hatred, multiple fears, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, eating disorders, self-harming and suicidal tendencies. The book gives insights into the Christian healing ministry I received and offers hope to victims of abuse, without negating the reality of the desperate inner conflicts and struggles.”
