In writing Freedom in Truth: Memoirs of Deliverance and Restoration from Past Abuse and Scandal, Michaela Maria Marshall (pseudonym) shares her account of being a victim of rape and incest in her early years, also the witnessing of a murder of a friend by one of her perpetrators who was attempting to molest the murder victim's little sister. Ms. Marshall also experienced years of physical and emotional abuse.
Freedom in Truth is divided into three sections. The first section deals with Ms. Marshall's past traumas and losses. Part Two will cover what she considers protective factors in her life. Part Three will include therapeutic letters written by Ms. Marshall but that she never mailed to offenders and victims in her past, as well as to God.
Her purpose in writing Freedom in Truth: Memoirs of Deliverance and Restoration from Past Abuse and Scandal is to follow the Holy Spirit's direction to enable the principles expressed in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 to be lived out in her life. If by sharing what happened to her will spare other victims experiencing similar incidents from having to be further victimized by families trying to cover up similar tragedies, more concerned about family reputations than the feelings and needs of the victims involved, then her mission has been accomplished.
