Publisher's Description

In her moving spiritual memoir, Mary DeMuth traces the winding path of “thin places” in her life—places where she experienced longing and healing more intensely than before. As DeMuth writes, “Thin places are snatches of holy ground, tucked into the corners of our world, where we might just catch a glimpse of eternity. They are aha moments, beautiful realizations, when the Son of God bursts through the hazy fog of our monotony and shines on us afresh.” From losing her earthly father to discovering a heavenly Father who never leaves, from singing Olivia Newton-John songs to the sky to worshiping God under a French sun, from surviving abuse as a latchkey kid to experiencing the joy of mothering three children, DeMuth’s story calls readers to a deeper understanding of their own story. With unusual spiritual wisdom, she looks for God in the past so that she might experience him more profoundly in the present. Her powerful words invite readers to know God in a new way—a God ready to break through any ordinary day or extraordinary pain and offer a glimpse of eternity.

Author Interview

I'm willing to share my story because I believe in the healing power of telling the truth. Sometimes when I have gone through some pain in my own life and I care about someone else having that kind of pain, it makes me feel not alone anymore. So, I write to help people know that they are not alone.

When I was 5 years old, neighborhood boys came to my babysitter's house, and every day they would take me to the backwoods or to their bedroom or various different places around the neighborhood, and they would rape me. That sexual abuse changed my life in a very negative way. Constantly fearing me, constantly fearing that the next person trying to get me was going to get me. And that kind of trauma was difficult to overcome. I didn't talk about it until I was 15 years old, and then at that point then I was able to share it and start down the road of healing.

I think people do not heal because they keep family secrets. They don't say things out loud, and it harbors inside for years and years and festers and becomes a bitter wound. And then they can't figure out why they're getting a divorce and they can't figure out why they're yelling at their kids or they can't figure out why they're running to this and that and everything else for help. It's because they've been pushing down all those secrets for all those years and not let them out. I am here to tell you that if you share your secret and you let it out, you will find healing. And that's why I'm risking sharing the stories of this book, so that other people might have the courage to share their own stories. My passion is to just turn on the light to those family secrets, to turn on the light to the pain that happens in people's lives and just say this is the reality, this is the truth. Now I'm going to walk forward from this and heal.

My name is Mary DeMuth, and I'm the author of Thin Places, A Memoir.
