Bound by Hurt

Free sample

In the face of unthinkable abuse, healing and restoration become equally unimaginable. Hidden scars impact emotional development, and horrific memories pave a path to depression and despondency. As Fabiola Manyi-Orellana declares in Bound By Hurt, however, hope can be found in Jesus Christ, God’s great gift of love to the world.

Born in communist Romania, Fabiola suffered repeated sexual abuse from a young age until she moved with her family to the United States. Although miles away from her abuser, she carried the wounds of her past and soon found herself skipping school and self-medicating with alcohol and drugs. Through a series of traumatic experiences, Fabiola came face to face with God’s love for her—a love she’d rejected for years. Now on a mission to share this love with other victims of abuse, Fabiola prays that Bound By Hurt will be a blessing to many.
