Sexual Abuse: Abuse, Rage, Redemption

Abuse, Rage, Redemption

Some studies conclude that one in three people will experience some type of sexual abuse in their lifetime. But the studies don’t begin to describe the lifelong impact of such abuse. The long term affects of sexual abuse affect victims in ways often do not realize. In this transparent resource, Jules and Terrie describe how childhood sexual abuse of Jules (by his Scout Master) coupled with the emotional and physical abuse of his father helped shape the simmering rage that impacted every part of his life. Unbeknownst to Jules, the rage he thought he had in check had created fear and insecurity in his wife of over thirty years. In this moving interview, Jules and Terrie describe how bringing sexual abuse out to the darkness into the light is the first step toward redeeming the impact of such betrayal.
