The Story Behind
Broken to Beautifully Whole
“Author Cathy Studer’s story begins with the trauma of years of sexual abuse by her step-father, but it doesn’t end there. Step by step, she takes the reader through attributes that healed her, that are applicable not just to abuse survivors, but to anyone dealing with challenges who wants to move toward healing and wholeness. From encouragement to applying gratitude in your life (because finding things to be grateful for increases our happiness), to learning self-compassion rather than self-criticism, to forgiving in order to establish your own worth and joy, she offers practical advice and encouragement. “You have the choice to live with joy and purpose. You have the choice to not let your tragedy or trauma define you.” Wise words and advice from a survivor with not just a compelling story, but a voice for strength and hope.”
