Publisher's Description

One week after Wendy Blight’s college graduation, she walked into her apartment to find a masked man holding a knife and waiting for her at the top of the stairs. The man spent an hour physically and sexually assaulting Wendy, leaving her changed forever. After this terrifying experience, she lived for years cocooned in a prison of fear, despair, and hopelessness. Finally, after years of searching and believing she had nowhere else to turn, she fell on her knees before God and poured out her tears, anger, and questions to Him. Wendy’s story is one of transformation from trauma to rebirth through the power of the Word of God.

Through Hidden Joy in a Dark Corner, the reader will experience hope and the encouragement necessary to press forward to healing and restoration.

    Incredible story of Finding Joy

    After being raped in college, Wendy struggles with fears, doubts, insecurities, and anxiety. Hidden Joy is the story of her journey through the valley to find that God had a plan for her pain - He intended to use it for good. While the beginning of the book has some intensely personal and sometimes hard to read sections, I found this book to be filled with Scripture and an incredible amount of hope. Because of her journaling habit, Wendy was able to walk us through her process of finding healing and show us how God was speaking to her through his Word. Her practical chapters on quiet times, prayer and abiding in Christ can apply to every Christian, not just those who have suffered some form of abuse.

    Hidden Joy in a Dark CornerThe Transforming Power of God's StoryWendy Blight2009Moody PublishersReligion/Christian Life/Spiritual GrowthReviewed by Cindy LovenWendy, a young college graduate was on her way. She had just graduated from college, was getting ready to be married and was spending her last few days of vacation before starting a new job, with her friends, when the unthinkable happened. A masked man, viciously raped her, in her own home. Her life would never be the same again.Hidden Joy in a Dark Corner is Wendy's story of her life and learning to live with the after effects of being sexually assaulted. Her questions for God, her raving and anger towards God for allowing this to happen, and her healing and recovery is all recorded in this book. Wendy learns that the Bible is more than the storybook, she had always thought it was. She found life, healing and answers in her Bible. Follow along as she finds the answers to why God allowed this to happen in her life, as she learns the importance of quiet time with God, the power of prayer, and discovers the wonderful life to be found in a personal relationship with God.Hidden Joy is a book that is well written, very easy to read and a book that speaks to your inner being. I highly recommend this book, to any one dealing needing emotional healing in their lives. The end of the book has a chapter by chapter guide for study and reflection. Wendy Blight has written a book that can bring emotional healing to all who read it. 205 pages

    "Hidden Joy in a Dark Corner" is the amazing story of Wendy's journey from a horrible attack to how God has healed her and lifted her out from her dark place. Most exciting about THIS book is the guidance - the step by step process to journey with the Lord. I love how she explains in words what a relationship with the Lord looks like, what quiet time looks like, what prayer looks like. I love the life application. I love that each page is chocked full of scripture. It is a story and a tool box in one.
