Publishers Description Never shared publicly before, Laurie's testimony is one of healing and hope for those ravaged by betrayal of a sexual nature. Her struggles together with her husband-and after his early death, alone-have paved a road of healing from such impossible wounds as Dissociative Identity Disorder and homosexuality. Her husband granted her his deathbed permission to reveal matters not easily broached in church ministries. With a passion to reach those lives shattered and similarly devastated, Laurie is a compelling model of transparency. She has reached out over the years with humor and honesty, using prayer counseling from various Christian models. For anyone dealing with sexual issues and bondage to them, this testimony is a must-read book. It took great courage to write this book but if we are to have a strong enough net for the coming harvest and do a better job of healing our wounded stories like this one need to be told. In a poignant, practical and powerful way, Laurie gives hope to the hurting and valuable insights to those called to heal them. Dr. Dutch Sheets, author and pastor Laurie Morris is a graduate of Christ for the Nations Institute. As an ordained minister with Federation of Ministers and Churches International (FMCI), Laurie has been involved with counseling for the past 20 years, primarily working with sexual abuse victims. Her studies have included Elijah House and Restoring the Foundations ministries. Laurie was married for 21 years to the late David Morris, a well-known worship leader and author. As a result of childhood sexual abuse, David struggled with sexual addiction and he and Laurie walked to healing together while in church leadership. She longs to impart hope to those who are hurting from sexual brokenness. Laurie currently resides in North Carolina with her family.

eye-opening perspective Aug 9, 2008
This book is a personal story of unreal proportions(of pain, honesty forgiveness, faith, healing and wholeness)but all very real! It is an eye-opening perspective of our culture today along with being a message of hope and encouragement. The author states, "The point is: I've been through what I've been through. You've been though what you've been through. God was faithful to me and He will be faithful to you. He is not a respecter of persons! In each and every situation we face He wants to show Himself to us and work His character in us. He is always pursuing us to trust Him wth every single aspect of life."
A Powerful Example of God's Redemptive Nature!!! Jun 21, 2008
I was gripped with Laurie's transparency throughout this book. Her honestly will cause many to open their hearts for the very first time. I can't recommend this book enough. It will be especially helpful to those who have experienced betrayal in their marriages. There are far too few books that show God's redemption in such a powerful way. Laurie is one of my new heroes!

Great Book! Apr 22, 2008
This book kept me captivated the entire read. Laurie Morris eloquently expressed her personal story of how her marital struggles affected her and her family relationships on many different levels, and how God's unfailing forgiveness, mercy, love and power took them from devastation to restoration. I believe the blatant honesty on these "taboo" subjects will arm the reader for their own struggles and prepare the church to help others who are hurting.
WARNING!! Apr 21, 2008
The information in this book will cause you to look at society and our innate ability to live blissfully blind in a whole new way!! It is a true "gut check" of the realities of everyday life for so many silently hurting and wounded people. A "MUST READ" for anyone desiring to be a productive part of changing this world in which we live. This is a message of hope, love, faithfulness and ultimately the healing power of truth.
Laurie's willingness to share such intimate details of struggles in her own life and the lives of those touched by these circumstances will be applauded by many. What a true outpouring of selflessness!!
Thank you Laurie Morris!!
TIMELY Apr 16, 2008
This book is "for such a time as this." Just as David does through the Psalms, Laurie walks you through the secret most places of the heart - through the fears, the anger, the shame, and ultimately through the victory. It's one thing to learn from someone who has book knowledge; it's quite another to glean from one who's been there. This is a must read.
