I was 14 years old spending the night with a friend, for the sole purpose of being in the same house as her older brother who I thought was cute. I knew my mom didn’t want me to spend the night at this family’s home, so my friend and I devised a plan and manipulated the situation.
I would consider my experience to be a date rape, and I never told anyone until 20 years afterwards. I started speaking about this horrible experience on mission trips overseas. Then, to small groups of couples along with my husband. Then, I started hosting women’s conferences and sharing my story.
I find freedom through my faith and my relationship with God. And through my transparency I have discovered that others will share their experiences and healing of the soul-the mind, the will and the emotions can begin.
