CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE IS A GLOBAL CRISIS OF PANDEMIC PROPORTION
THAT IS PERMITTED TO CONTINUE, LARGELY UNADDRESSED
AND IGNORED IN OUR SOCIETY TODAY.
IT'S MY STORY TO TELL is a debut memoir that is a raw, disturbing, and
thought-provoking truth that many children in homes all across America are
facing every day. It is a personal, detailed recollection of a woman's growth
and reckoning as a child, growing up in a dysfunctional blended family, A
child that was sworn to secrecy regarding the inappropriate behavior she
endured, all in the name of protecting the family image of perfection. Now
an adult with her own husband and children, JoMarie lifts the veil of silence
that has long kept her hiding in plain sight behind the damage of childhood
sexual abuse, at the hands of someone she loved and trusted to be her
protection. Her detailed journey combined with gems of wisdom and
lessons learned along the way are enlightening, defying expectation and
inviting readers to reconsider the secrets kept within the walls of our homes.
Secrets that are permitted to continue, even when inappropriate behavior
In this memoir, JoMarie invites her readers to see firsthand, how this
experience single handedly continues to shape who she has become and
impacts every area of her life years after the fact. She held onto this secret
for decades and if research is true, she is not alone. There are millions of
Adult Survivors of child sexual abuse that have never told their story. Her
hope is that by the releasing of her experience, on her own terms, in her own
way, others will be encouraged to do the same and set themselves FREE.
