Today, I am taking part in a book tour for Niki Krauss, who has written a book about her experiences of childhood abuse, which is entitled Little Girl Mended. Many of you out there in the cybersphere have suffered at the hands of another during your childhood. No child should EVER experience abuse.
Niki writes, “I am beginning to understand what might be possible for me. God can restore me. He can make my present life more meaningful than what I lost in the past, and that gives me great hope for the future. I’ve always thought of healing as being at peace with my childhood and forgiving my father. I’m realizing now God can do more than heal me. He can restore to me what I’ve lost. With his help, I can fully be what he intended me to be. I can’t wait!”
If you know of someone who has experienced abuse and needs God to restore the past and heal the present to give him or her hope for the future, then this is for that one.
About Niki Krauss…
Niki Krauss is a Yankee by birth, a Southerner by choice, and a joy-filled lover of Jesus by grace. After twenty-four years of moving around the country as the wife of a Marine Corps aviator, she and her husband of forty years have settled in Charleston, South Carolina. Niki is the former assistant editor for the Marine Corps Gazette, the professional journal of the United States Marine Corps, where she wielded her red pen for fifteen years. As a sexual abuse survivor herself, her most recent passion is leading faith-based support groups for women survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
About Little Girl Mended…
No little girl should ever have to learn about sexual abuse at the hands of her father. But I did, and I survived. This is my story.
Little Girl Mended is both a story of abuse and a story of redemption, spanning more than fifty years. From the loss of innocence at age seven, through ten-plus years of abuse, forty-five years of silence, and finally—well into my fifties—coming to understand that healing is possible. My walk through recovery coincided with a deepening of my relationship with Jesus Christ. Through that relationship I came to experience the Father’s love—a love I couldn’t fully understand while viewing everything through the distorted lens of incest.
In this first-person narrative, I examine painful memories and difficult emotions, allowing myself to feel for the first time in my life. As I grapple with shattering hurt and long-buried pain, I come to realize there can be no healing without surrender. It’s not in my strength that I find healing, but in my complete surrender to Jesus Christ.
The power found in the pages of Little Girl Mended is there for you, too—whatever the circumstances of your own life’s story. Come along and claim it.
Niki is also available for personal appearances and interviews; contact Becki Brannen to schedule.
