Overcoming sexual abuse is not an easy journey; in time, the soul will heal. In Why Me?, Dr. Tina Medina presents a self-help Christian approach to assist young sexual abuse victims in recovering from the pain of that mistreatment. Geared toward young readers, this guide helps children understand how to overcome sexual exploitation with the help of God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. It encourages abuse victims to become like young David and overcome the "Goliath" of sexual abuse. It introduces the Biblical foundations of forgiveness, restoration, and releasing the pain of the past, so kids know there is hope and a path that leads to recovery. It provides opportunities for reflecting, journaling, and expressing anger and pain in writing. Through scripture and stories, Medina shows how young abuse victims can heal their inner spirit and take control of their life. Why Me? assures kids they are loved and prized in God's eyes.
