Buy Not Marked & Get Free Healing Resources

Feb 10, 2014Find joy today, Heal from the past, Not Marked

Today is the day. The official day Not Marked releases. I’m full of fear and excitement and a little heartburn (if you want true honesty). The book started from a viral blog post, morphed into something I pitched to publishers (they said no), became a crowdfunding campaign (you said YES), and is now a book I can hold in my hands (and now you can too).

Today is also my birthday. I’m 23-24, for anyone who needs to know. 🙂 As I write this, I  am profoundly, deeply aware of God’s purpose and healing in my life. I give Jesus so much glory for the way He has walked me through my adulthood as I’ve processed the past. I’m less afraid today. I’m more compassionate. I’m less broken. I’m more hopeful.

In six more days is my husband Patrick’s birthday. He has walked me through this healing journey on so many trails, during so many trials, up and down mountain peaks, through many valleys. He has also graciously contributed to Not Marked. Watch what he has to say:

Let’s be honest here: This book (the writing of it, the funding, and now the promotion) is KICKING my behind. I’ve battled more insecurity, feelings of being totally overwhelmed, and fear than I have ever experienced in all my book launches. I know this book will bring light into a situation Satan would like to keep firmly in the darkness. The battle is real. But the warfare I’ve experienced has been much more inside me, wanting to give up this writing journey.

Spending myself on the page like this has spent me. {Prayers appreciated}.

I’m grateful that folks are beginning (muddling in the middle, finishing) their healing journey because of Not Marked. Here are some recent testimonies:

“I’m hooked up to low dose chemo right now, but I couldn’t let another moment pass. Your book Not Marked is life changing! You have gone places I thought only existed in my head! I love you and your courage to bleed on these pages.” Angie

“My husband read Not Marked in two evenings. He was, in his words, ravenous for it. His heart broke, but he was filled with hope. Both he and I were sexually abused. There’s more to it — there always is. But suffice it to say, he was reading it with two perspectives — survivor and married to a survivor. He has never really been able to understand my struggles with intimacy and your book has opened his eyes in a new way. Patrick’s words of encouragement were powerful and encouraging to him.” Anonymous

“I took advantage of the cold weather and dug into Not Marked tonight. I could circle, highlight, underline, and stain each page with my tears. This book is powerful! Thank you for writing a book that has the Holy Spirit’s fresh breath of love and healing woven through each page. Joining you in prayer for healing to all who will pursue it from God. God knew I needed this and I believe I am not alone with the need.” Anonymous

So, I’m really excited for YOU to have a copy. This book has two audiences:

  1. The person who has been sexually abused.
  2. The person who loves a sexual abuse victim.

Which means, Not Marked is for nearly all of you reading this. In an effort to get it into the hands of many who need it, I’m running a little special this week until next Monday–a full week of blessing.
