Overview

Healing in the Hurting Places is a personal experience story and outreach for victims of childhood sexual abuse, and those who want to help them. It sensitively focuses on the healing journey—how to recognize symptoms of abuse and offer help. Victims often feel alone, they don’t know where to turn or may believe no one will understand. Author Karen Riley speaks to that place of pain and takes you on the healing journey that transformed her life.

“This is not about the tragic event, but about where to go now. I want them to know that they are not alone, and there is One who can heal their broken hearts,” writes the author.

Others who will benefit from this story of hope and healing: those affected by alcoholism, drug abuse, domestic, and other physical or verbal abuse—and those who are involved with them.

 

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,

 will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).

 

Many victims share similar characteristics and traits as a result of abuse, which often manifest in the same behavior patterns—Healing in the Hurting Places is a springboard to empowerment and better understanding.

    A Healing Journey That Leads to Transformation

    "Healing in the Hurting Places" is drawn from Karen F. Riley's personal experiences and the lessons she learned as a victim of childhood sexual abuse, working through a manipulative home environment, the hurtful impact of bullies throughout her high-school years, and her ongoing ministry of restoration, hope and healing to other victims of sexual abuse. Karen is a gifted communicator. As I scanned the back cover of "Healing in the Hurting Places" I knew I was in for a memorable reading experience. I was drawn into Karen's story before I had finished the first two paragraphs of her opening statement. Her writing is personal, intimate, and candid. I appreciated her willingness to make herself vulnerable. She tells of her active faith without being judgmental or preachy. Well chosen Scriptural references illustrate her faith-walk as well as Biblical principles, illustrations, and applications. I was personally struck by the power of the illustration from the Old Testament book of Jeremiah which describes the process of the potter's wheel and the impact this had on Karen's healing. "Healing in the Hurting Places" is must reading for sexual abuse victims, for anyone caught up in the cycle of addictive behaviors, and for those concerned loved ones attempting to provide help and encouragement. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's guidelines. As reviewed for Midwest Book Review.
