Description:

My Journey from Abuse to Freedom

Every day in America, four women are murdered by their spouses or intimate partners. This statistic does not change in the church. In fact, one reason many women remain in violent marriages is due to a narrow understanding of Scripture and of God’s heart. For these women, Jennifer Faith has a word: it is not God’s will for you to be abused.

For over twenty years, Jennifer lived a secret life—a life of fear and shame—a daily existence marked by powerlessness and oppression. Yet God was always there, long before she was able to distinguish between his loving voice of truth and the lies that kept her captive. If she had not finally allowed Him to intervene, Jennifer would not likely be here today to tell her story and to give Jesus, her compassionate, pursuing Savior, all the glory.

With honesty and humility, Jennifer recounts how she came to find herself in a violent marriage—the red flags she missed, the toxic thinking that made her a victim rather than a victor. With courage, she shares her journey from horror to wholeness. She provides resources to help women answer the questions that keep battered women stuck: Am I in an abusive relationship? What if it’s my fault? Is it biblical to leave? And she offers hope that, just as God made a way for her to journey out of darkness into a life of light and freedom, he wants to do the same for others.
