And my brave friend, Mary DeMuth, did write it. Because she was tired of what her history with sexual abuse took from her. And she was tired of seeing other people lose large chunks of their life because of the personal aftermath of someone else’s evil decision. And she wanted the 6 out of 10 women and 4 out of 10 men who have suffered from this to know they are not marked, they have never been marked, they will never be marked except by their beloved Creator, God.
The only mark that remains is the mark of Jesus’ great affection for us. Live and breathe there. ~Mary DeMuth
Mary wrote Not Marked to let you who have lived this injustice know you aren’t alone and to cheer you towards a new life. I find this a most awesome thought.
If you’re a survivor of sexual abuse or know someone who is, this is your book.
