Sexual abuse is one of the common sources of emotional and psychological suffering for millions of women across the world and this pain has paralyzed some of them, making it exceedingly difficult for them to generously give and receive love. In When the Woman Abused Was You: A Guide to Healing from Sexual Abuse, author, survivor, and preacher, Dawn Scott Damon, talks about this pain and helps readers discover that they have the key to unlocking the door to inner healing. Sexual abuse can make a woman lose her sense of self-worth and dignity, and in many cases, some women find themselves lingering in the shadow of shame, unable to get free from the overwhelming sense of guilt.
In this inspirational and enlightening book, the author shares her personal experience of abuse in a way that is raw, and with utter honesty, allowing readers to understand how the phenomenon affects them and the kinds of thoughts it drives in. Then she moves on to offer powerful tips and insights on how to claim one’s life back, embracing the path towards freedom.
Dawn Scott Damon’s book is a gift that will speak of peace and wisdom to many hearts that have been hurt and that still wallow in the confusion of guilt and shame. The writing is fluid, with well-chosen words that pithily convey the author’s message. I loved the parts where the author shares her own story and it comes across beautifully, in a clear and compassionate voice. Readers will appreciate the reassuring tone of the writing, the logical offering of ideas, and the truth buried in these pages. This is a book for any woman — and any man — who has been made to feel small, dirty, and less human through the painful acts of sexual abuse. When the Woman Abused Was You: A Guide to Healing from Sexual Abuse offers hope and shows readers how to reach out for it. This is another gift to share with those who have been hurt both emotionally and sexually. In these pages lies their path to freedom.
