Trading Fathers: Forgiving Dad, Embracing Godby Karen Rabbitt

"I couldn't breathe. I wanted to scream, but I couldn't breathe. I stared in horror at his expressionless eyes, fixed on me-but not in love."
Karen Rabbitt was four years old when her father molested her the first time. She did not understand what was happening. She felt dirty, unclean, and terrified. She hated it and she grew to hate him. For twenty years Karen wandered in a wilderness of depression, shame, and fear. Still, she carried on: college, marriage, motherhood. But a father's violation warps everything, especially our relationship with Father-God.
Karen's memoir invites you to grapple with her most gut-wrenching questions: "What kind of God are you, who stood by without rescuing me?" and "Where were you when I was abused?" In the end, God blessed her with faith to call him "Papa." Her story will open your eyes to the abundant life Papa-God desires for you.
