Carried by Grace – A Guide for Mothers of Victims of Sexual Abuse
“My twelve-year-old daughter had put a chef’s knife to her chest and threatened to kill herself. Her step-dad was sexually abusing her. I felt swallowed by darkness — like Jonah in the belly of the whale. This can’t be happening.”
A family member… a friend… someone you know has sexually abused your child. Tumultuous emotions buffet you from all sides. You’re feeling lost and confused. Where do you turn for help? Part memoir, part devotional, author Debra L. Butterfield offers…
• comfort for your heartache • practical guidance for daily needs • a biblical path to healing, and • encouragement and hope along the way.
Let yourself be Carried by Grace as you journey toward restoration.
