The Survivor's Journal: A Woman's Miraculous Journey from Abuse to Freedom . . . One Step at a Time (Paperback)
In a moment of clarity after yet another angry explosion by her husband one Thanksgiving Day, Rose promised her son that she would find a way out of their unhealthy family situation. With the support of her domestic abuse class instructor and the helpful reminders in her little red notebook, Rose made the courageous decision to step out in faith and trust God one step at a time as she walked away from her abusive marriage of eleven years.
Jeanne Jensen understands the hurt and uncertainty of a home situation that doesn't feel safe. Jeanne is Rose, and she knows exactly what it feels like to walk the emotionally painful, often lonely road from abuse to freedom in her own life. Like many women, she struggled with what she should do and when-always trusting that God was right beside her, guiding her through each difficult step.
When Jeanne started writing in a teal leather-bound journal, simply documenting each day of her one-year commitment to tell her story, she never imagined it would turn into a miraculous manifesto of God's goodness and favor as she courageously stepped out in faith.
The Survivor's Journal will encourage any woman feeling trapped in an abusive relationship to listen to their heart, learn from those who've gone before them, and have the courage to leave an unsafe marriage. Whether you are in an abusive relationship yourself, or want to help someone else who is suffering from domestic abuse, this book offers practical guidance, inspiration to trust in our faithful God, and hope that a new life of freedom is possible . . . one step of faith at a time.
