Here is Part 2 of my story that I shared for the Shattered Sermon series at Pantano Christian Church. Thanks to some help, I figured out how to finally post this to my blog.
Oh, and a fun little tidbit – the journal you see me writing in in both parts of my story – that is “my journal.” The journal in which I copied the letter I wrote to my rapist. The journal I wrote in for the following two years whenever I was struggling or I found something that encouraged me. That journal is the reason I can revisit this season of my life in such depth and detail. Why my journey toward hope and healing is so well documented.
