Grace in the Shadow of the Cross is a creative autobiography about how one little girl's unspeakable abuse became one joyful woman's testimony of healing. This true story is told in three voices: Ann's first-hand experiences are described through the character of Grace (who begins with the name Prophet). Accompanying her voice are those of Father God and Deceiver. Father God speaks mainly through Scriptures but also through private prayer conversations actually experienced by Ann. Deceiver's cruel voice will be all too familiar to abuse survivors. This book is for those who have known abuse as well as those who love them. It is for the broken, the beaten, the humbled, and the humiliated. Ultimately, it's a story of hope that will encourage you-no matter your past pain-that God loves you and desires to heal your heart. Ann Jorgensen is president and cofounder of The Word of Our Testimony, Inc., a ministry devoted to sharing individual stories of God's deliverance. She writes from her home in San Antonio, Texas, and is available for speaking on topics related to abuse and healing.
