Not Forsaken will hit US bookstore shelves on August 20! The debut book by Jennifer Michelle Greenberg chronicles her recovery milestones following 20+ years of child abuse and domestic violence.
This past week, Jason and I finished watching the third and final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones. It’s a dark show, and certainly not one I’d recommend for kids or anyone who might find the subject material (including sex scenes, violence, and alcoholism) triggering. However, as an abuse survivor and an author, I find the writing, philosophical and ethical conundrums, and the psychology of the characters to be fascinating.
While I’ve seen the viral video, I haven’t seen anyone ask: Why is a 12-year-old girl sexually active? Why isn’t he getting her medical care? Is he angry because he loves his daughter, or because he’s failed as a dad and blames her? Who’s filming this and why?

I had the humbling honor a few months ago of being asked to contribute to the Caring Well Abuse Report, which was being developed by the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), and the Sexual Abuse Advisory Group. That report was released this past Sunday! My contribution is on Page 19. Whether you’ve survived abuse …
