I’m excited to announce that I am working on a book! The title is still evolving, but the topic is “Wounded By the Church”. Over the years I’ve heard countless stories from women who have been hurt in their church. I think we all have. The church is made up of imperfect people. The stories range from small to tragic and horrific. They all make up our experience of women in the church. I want to collect these stories anonymously and share them with other women. I believe in this way, we can all learn, grow, and help each other heal.
In the meantime, if you would like to submit your stories to be included in the book, please follow the “Contact” link above.
What you should know about submissions:
1. All submissions are 100% anonymous. No real names, locations, or churches will be used. Some telling facts will be slightly changed to protect identities of all parties.
2. The spirit of the book is not to be divisive or to slam the church, but to help in healing.
3. The end goal is to have other women read your story and think,
“Wow, that also happened to someone else, and now I don’t feel so alone.”
“How can I learn from this person’s experience to help my own situation?”
“How can the Church do a better job in these areas for women?”
“How can God redeem the situation, heal our brokenness, and help our Church to become a welcoming and warm place of belonging?”
