WELCOME!

If you’re familiar with my background, you might think this is the website of a lawyer.  But I was a writer long before I ever became a lawyer.

Before that, I was for years a victim of child molestation.  That fact doesn’t define me.  It’s just the springboard I’ve used to propel myself forward.

And that really is my point.  We are, all of us, more than our labels, more than our circumstances, more than the pain we may have endured.

This website is a way for me to make that point, to comment on abuse-related issues, and to share my faith.

I hope you’ll join me…and find your own voice.

  2. Thank you for being a voice. Many are blessed by your blog, I am sure. Especially those who may be trapped in circumstances or silence, but at least have access to the Internet. Praying for you and your blog. God loves you!

  3. 100 percent behind you Anna xo

  4. Anna, I have great admiration for you, for having the courage and the voice to share the atrocities that you’ve been through. You serve as an inspiration to so many. Thank you. And, your faith is a testament to your inner strength.

  5. Anna, you’re truly a saint for the suppressed, the underprivileged, the abused—- in a time that literally worsens by the day. Your pen is mightier than sword. With your drive, your words serve as a hope, a glimmer of light for a failing society. With each post, it’s an outstretched hand for everyone seeking help. Thank you for all that you do and say and believe in.

    • I wish I deserved such high praise, Lance. But thank you for the encouragement. This world of ours can be a sad place. No one of us alone can change it. Together though we can make a difference, can shed light in dark places. The temptation may be to despair. God, however, remains sovereign. In the end, He will prevail. We can rely on that.

    Hi Anna, I read your book: An Evangelical on the Left loved every second of it. I can relate to your views and I happen to have survived mild child abuse myself. In my culture, it is considered normal to hit kids…

    • Thank you for your feedback on the book, Leo! Though great minds can differ on the subject, there is a distinction between mild corporal punishment and outright physical abuse. Children need discipline in some form. This can, however, be taken to an extreme. It is not appropriate to inflict physical injuries like burns or bruises on a child. It is not appropriate to deprive children of necessary food or shelter, by way of punishment for an infraction. All discipline should be tempered with love.

  7. God bless you for taking the things you’ve been through and using them constructively to help others. God can use our brokenness, and those most greatly used often have stories of great life battles they have come through only by learning to lean heavily on the Lord. While developing depths of empathy beyond the norm, they develop another kind of strength drawn from tapping into the Lord’s power. As you said He can turn anything to the good. God bless and keep you sharing hope and love for those who struggle under those weights.

  8. thank you for doing justice, loving mercy and walking humbly with God –

  9. Dear Anna, you have dedicated yourself to a noble cause. Just writing about what’s wrong with the societies lands one in trouble, and here you are physically performing. Kudos to you and your team.

  10. It takes incredible courage to do what you’re doing! So glad I came across your blog.

  11. We are definitely more than our label, and that fact shall never define nor take control of the person you chose to become

  12. I am still exploring your site. Thanks for being so open about your experiences. Keep up the good writing and the good work.
