Description

Fourteen-year-old Ann Cassidy is struggling with her past. She has a secret that she has kept for a long time -a secret not even her parents are aware of. Ann's friend Heather has a hunch that something isn't right - Ann's nightmares are evidence of that. Heather doesn't know what to do when Ann tells her friend about the years of sexual abuse she has suffered.


Do you know any students like Ann who have been abused by people they should have been able to trust? What can you say or do to help? What do they need most right now?


Perhaps more than any time in their lives they need a 17:17 friend - "A friend is always a friend, and relatives are born to share our troubles" (Proverbs. 17:17 CEV).


Through the aid of a heart breaking true-to-life story, Josh and Ed, offer biblical insights and practical instruction on what your friends can do to resolve past sexual abuse in their lives.


But more importantly, you will discover how to become a true source of encouragement and support to them during their struggle. This book is designed for you to read first and then give to others.


And if you are that person who is facing abuse, you will learn how to face the issues of false guilt, shame and helplessness and discover your self worth once more. But more than that, you will discover how to experience the comfort, encouragement, and support you need from both God and a friend - most likely the friend who gave you this book.
