Hello, my small amount of readers.
I have finally, almost, pretty much decided on a topic for a book. And I need your help to write it.
If you have read my story, you know I went from a place of being a self-righteous Christian, to the place of understanding true Christianity.
I know the idea of a domineering male figure, and “forgive your brother 77 times” and “love your enemies” have all been taken out of context to confuse those in an abuse situation.
I want to write a book exposing what it really feels like to be abuse. Or raped. Or in a depression. Or addicted to alcohol or drugs. Or to become homosexual. Or lose a loved one. Or have PTSD. So many of those go together, and feed off each other.
I believe that love is a huge concept. But to truly love those in one of the above situations, we must first truly understand how they feel. That’s where I need you.
I also want to write what would be the most helpful to those in these situations. People used to try to cheer me up and help get my mind off of depression. Or quote a bunch of encouraging verses. Those really didn’t help at all. I felt like they were basically saying,
“God isn’t OK with you being this way. You need to snap out of it. And it’s not that hard. Come on and get normal already.”
What I really needed was, “Hey, I think where you are is just as important as who you want to be. What do you need me to listen to?”
I want to write a book that’s a collection of these thoughts. Separated by situations (alcohol, grief, depression, etc.).
Would you all help me? Either send me a message on Facebook, contact me here:
or just comment below! The book is still in the formation stage, so the format may change some. I would love input! Thanks!
