Writing the book The Journey from Error to Heir has created in me the need to continue the journey beyond the book. My purpose in its original writing was to let people know there is freedom from the past which life has given us no matter what the Hurt, Hang-up and Habits are we may carry from it. Now being several months beyond the books completion, I find my journey continues. I am finding more I need to add to the last section of the book–Finding Freedom. This then is my reason for creating the blog site. I will be making daily entries into this (as I learn how this is done)! Even today has been its own mystery trying to figure out where I enter a blog?
Mostly, I’d like to pass along to any reader what God is showing me about my own recovery from the sexual abuse of my past as well as the emotional and physical abuse. Each day in my morning devotional time I end my journaling by asking Christ what He wants me to know for this day I am entering. As I do this and journal what I hear Him saying to me I find I don’t need to panic about whether I am doing what God wants. I can surrender that fear and live in the assurance I am completing God’s assignment today.
My friend who helped me get started with this part of the journey gave me the scripture of Luke 11:33 to assist me with my fears of writing this. It says: “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.” I truly appreciated this insight. My fears after writing the book practically drove me into isolation thinking I had just exposed my life and all it did was tell people why I was such a mess anyway. To promote the book was just something I was paralyzed in doing. Now a few months later I am finally responding to God’s nudges to let readers know the inside struggle and continued recovery.

I have read the book, The Journey from Error to Heir. I commend you for your honesty and courage in sharing something so private. I have a child who is struggling with sexual abuse from a family member. It is not an easy thing to cope with, no matter how one is connected to it. May God continue to be with you and us all.
