Without question, child sexual abuse is a selfish, hidden, and ugly act that leaves the lives of victims shattered; not knowing where to turn next. The effects of child sexual abuse are long-term and severe. The branches of its poison are profound and rooted in traumatic childhood experiences, tainting the understanding of how healthy human relationships are formed. The saving grace is that healing from abuse is possible with the proper support, faith, determination, encouragement, and support.
Living Beyond the Silence is a powerful tool that will help victims come to terms with their past, while moving courageously and powerfully into their future. We can’t always control the things that happen to us, but we can control how we allow those events to direct the course of our lives.
Inspired by stories of courageous survivors who have broken free from their past and have taken steps to live beyond their silence, Sharon R. Wells-Simonson passes on a gift of hope and resources, helping others to move beyond the place of victim to becoming victorious.
