- This book breaks the silence. by Tara Joy on 10/11/2015
From Pain to Power, by Mary Ellen Mann, is a book that breaks the silence of sexual trauma women face and the emotional and spiritual repercussions there after. She gently uses her own past full of sexual trauma to help other women heal from the things that for years have been a stigma of shame for the victims. Even within Christian circles. Shame they feel that interferes with relationships and their own self worth.
However, Mary Ellen Mann brings the love and healing that Jesus provides to the forefront - identifying that sexual trauma is a tactic of satan that Jesus Christ came to heal. Jesus doesn't want women of sexual trauma to feel shame, he wants to free and heal them of their afflictions.
How do I know this? Because I am a victim of sexual abuse who held it in secretly for 15 years. I was so full of shame that I refused to tell anyone - which ultimately prevented my own healing. It wasn't until this year that God opened my eyes to the lie that satan fed me, convincing me people would think of me as disgusting if I shared. I was trapped in my own cell until Jesus set me free.
From Pain to Power allowed me to identify with others on what I have gone through. Things that I have thought that no one else could have experienced we poured out onto the pages as if I had written them myself.
Not only was her book written so we know we are not alone, but it reminds us that we are Gods daughters, his Warrior Princesses, who hold a unique worth and gifts that satan is afraid of being used against him. It also provides things to add into our daily routine to combat satans ploys.
Mary's book is a true guide to healing on a subject that no one wants to talk about.
Thank you Mary for answering Gods call to speak out for the sexually abused while others just sweep in under the rug.
