"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.
