Publisher's Description

Current statistics reveal that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. Jennifer Kostyal became one of those statistics. Jennifer’s story reads like a Hollywood movie. The blonde, blue-eyed beauty pageant winner was raised in a religious cult, molested for ten years by a family member and later became involved in abusive relationships as an adult. Finally, on the verge of mental collapse, she made the decision to end her own life and would have except for a miraculous intervention. It was the turning point to Jennifer’s eventual healing in every aspect of her life.
    
Finally Free is more than just a miraculous testimony of God’s grace as Kostyal shares teaching and insight that helped set her free from rejection, fear, anger, low self esteem, and the host of issues common to those who have experienced sexual, mental and physical abuse.
     
Finally Free: How to Live in the Present by Letting Go of the Past is more than a story of survival. It is your step-by step manual to walk out of the darkness of your pain and enter into the light of hope and healing that leads to your destiny. God wants you to realize that when you are Finally Free, you are no longer defined by your painful past, but rather, the peace and joy of your future.

    "Finally Free" is Jennifer Kostyal's story. It is written with passion and understanding, purpose, and resolve. As a child Jennifer Kostyal is convinced that her birth was a mistake, that she is ugly and therefore worthless.

    Jennifer candidly reveals her experiences of self-preservation as a victim of verbal abuse, curses, beatings, molestation, and rape. She relates how she met the onslaught of attacks by demonic forces, reliving nightmares of the past. She tells of a longing to sink into oblivion, thoughts of suicide, and the wounds of her heart. In strong descriptive words Jennifer tells of the feelings of guilt, betrayal, and abandonment that followed broken relationships, family confrontations. She describes the impact of the restrictive confines of the cult like religion of her family.

    In the midst of her conflict and confusion Jennifer experienced a divine intervention, an experience of indescribable power and love, as for the first time she understood the simplicity and reality of the message of Jesus' love. As she searched answers from the Word of God and claimed the promises she found restoration and healing. She experienced the compassion of Christ. Trauma turned to victory - sorrow turned to joy. Jennifer offers encouragement, hope, peace, and freedom to victims of abuse still in bondage.

    The book also contains important instruction and information helpful to family members and victims caught up in the repeat cycle of abuse, with unhealed festering wounds, results of the poison of the past. She provides tools from the scriptures for finding break through and deliverance from the bondage of abuse. She exhorts the reader to take note of behavior changes in your child. It is important to be sensitive to the following symptoms of victims of abuse:

    • Attention problems and the ability to focus

    • Anxiety and extreme fear

    • Emotional wounds

    • Broken relationships

    • A constant need to be affirmed

    • A posture and lack of eye contact as a result of shame and guilt

    • Feelings of depression, despair, and distrust

    • Overly introverted

    "Finally Free" is an engaging emotionally charged page turner demanding to be read. Jennifer's story is absorbing leaving the read with a lingering impact.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
