“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”Toni Morrison
Journey Pink – The Journey of a Princess In Need of a King is my memoir of healing from Childhood Sexual Abuse. For years, I hid painful secrets behind a fake smile. I wanted everyone to think I was fine, but I was full of panic and shame on the inside. Several years ago, Jesus led me to a Christian Counselor, where I began my journey to discover the answers to the questions that burned inside of me for years:
What does it look like to heal from Childhood Sexual Abuse? How is it even possible?
As I started my journey to discover the answer to those questions, Jesus radically changed my life.
- He gave me the courage to tell my story.
- He gave me hope by reminding me of His love through the color pink.
- He gave me freedom by shining His light into the darkest parts of my story.
My chains are gone. He set me free.
I am Michelle Viscuse, and my passion is to inspire women who have been sexually abused or violated to have courage, hope, and freedom in Jesus Christ!
And you? Maybe, you’ve been on your journey for a while, or perhaps you are just starting. Maybe you are not even sure what it means, but you are tired of pretending, and you need something real.
Jesus is real, and He is worth it.
No matter where you have been, no matter what has happened to you, no matter what you’ve done, He’s right there whispering, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me, and you will recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me, and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly” Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
Freely and lightly was the desire of my weary heart. What about you? Grab a coffee or Diet Coke (or both if you are like me), and let’s journey together, princess. Our King is waiting with open arms.
Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who has promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:22-23 NIV
