Behind the harrowing statistics are faces, names, and stories that humanize the numbers and justify the need for the Christian community’s acknowledgment and assistance to those suffering from stolen choices or choices they regret.
Delaware, Ohio Jan 7, 2024 (Issuewire.com) – Laurel Burns’ debut self-help book A Purely Wrong Story: Escaping Sexual Shame, Exposing a Game-Changer, and Editing Your Life Story without Changing the Facts introduces a Christian initiative to support girls and women of all ages who suffer from traumatic or regretful sexual experiences. Thanks to growing global media attention, the world can no longer ignore the depths and heights this social issue reaches, the economic levels it spans, and the continents it crosses. Awareness is promising, but for millions of women, the solution is paramount. Anyone hiding this type of pain is guaranteed to need help. However, some women cannot hurdle their embarrassment, and other women’s circumstances demand inconspicuous help.
A Purely Wrong Story accommodates many hindrances to healing by providing women with tailored ways to obtain support. Beginning January 16, 2024, A Purely Wrong Story will be available in print and e-book versions on Amazon and other major online book retailers and for audio download on ACX. The print version’s bonus materials also provide study questions applicable for individual or social group use.
Though a longtime Christian, Burns struggled to understand how God factored into the sexual trauma and regret that stained her life. Since healing managed to elude her for years, Burns questioned the likelihood of others finding God under these circumstances, given the Christian community’s nearly exclusive focus on abstinence. Therefore, A Purely Wrong Story utilizes an unassuming, nonjudgmental approach, respecting any starting point of believers and non-believers alike. Each page testifies to firsthand experience with situations that many consider too awkward to address, shame that eclipses the future, and the pain of feeling disqualified or ruined.
Until now, millions of women have shared a common problem because it’s been uncommon to discuss the solution from a Christian perspective. Now, the conversation can open up to all.
Author Laurel Burns appreciates that hurting women’s receptiveness to help hinges on trust. As a fellow survivor, Burns boasts a unique position secured through decades of battling shame and a refusal to allow her healing to go to waste. She embodies the answer for any despairing soul needing hope from the trenches rather than a pedestal.
