This New Dawn

Providence  - $8.25

Authored by Laurel Hall 
Edited by Karin Cox

At age four, Emma was sexually abused by neighborhood boys—abuse that continued for four years. With no one to tell, not even her parents, her life was filled with pain, shame and misery. She handled her emotional anguish the only way she knew how: by making plenty of mistakes, giving in to anger, suffering mental illness and anxiety attacks, and living a life devoid of joy or self-love. This is her story. A story of survival, and of overcoming emotional, physical and sexual abuse to find happiness in marriage, family and God. She hopes her story will help others who have suffered similar abuse find peace.

Betrayed   -  $8.25

Authored by Laurel Hall

Abused as a child, Emma Johnson spent most of her life trying to overcome feelings of guilt, shame, and worthlessness, and working through those damaging emotions with therapy. When the Penn State scandal broke, she realized just how little the public understood the pain that abused children endured. Often, the victims of sexual and physical abuse carry that emotional turmoil with them into their adult lives. Knowing that something had to be done, Emma made it her mission to educate others about the tragic consequences of abuse. Using Emma's own experiences and the stories of seven abused women, each of whom reveal their pain and their pasts in an effort to heal, author Laurel Hall aims to break the silence about abuse and to demonstrate the havoc such violence inflicts on people's lives. These are their stories.

One Soul's Journey   -  $7.99

Authored by Laurel Hall

"One Soul's Journey" is really an addendum to Providence, the story of Emma who was repeatedly abused sexually as a child beginning at the age of four and lasting over four years. The overwhelming guilt and shame she felt, feeling it was all her fault, filled her with fear that when she died she was going to Hell. Longing for His forgiveness, she searched for God for years and could not find Him. There was always a void in her heart. As an adult, Emma attended a church retreat just for women and there she read a book "God Calling". She thought if God spoke to these two women, perhaps He would speak to one lone woman in search of Him. She decided to follow their path. Alone, in the morning in a quiet space, Emma said her prayers and waited for God's response, writing it in her journal. "One Soul's Journey" is an excerpt of the responses she received along with poetry she wrote during that period.
