Hello friends! It’s been a wild blur of a week. We are finishing up final edits on the last chapter of Not Forsaken, I submitted an article about finding hope after church abuse for the ERLC (stay tuned for that!), and today I interviewed with the amazing Bryan Kirk over at Houston Patch (stay tuned for that too!).
But my biggest announcement is that, not only has The Good Book Company unveiled the cover design for my book, but it’s now available for Pre-Order!
Not Forsaken, book description:
Jenn Greenberg was abused by her church-going father. Yet she is still a Christian. In this courageous, compelling book, she reflects on how God brought life and hope in the darkest of situations. Jenn shows how the gospel enables survivors to navigate issues of guilt, forgiveness, love, and value. And she challenges church leaders to protect the vulnerable among their congregations. Not Forsaken is not an easy read. But, perhaps today more than ever, it is a must-read.
Table of contents:
There are fifteen chapters covering topics including (but not limited to) understanding depression and anxiety, confronting anger at God, dealing with distrust, overcoming self-destructive behavior, breaking free from guilt and shame, and realizing that as survivors of abuse we can relate with God in a very unique and profound way.
