Forgiveness is the first step to freedom.
Mended Faith: A Life of Abuse, Pain and Redemption
"For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, Your heavenly Father will also forgive you." — Matthew 6:14
Mended Faith shares Cornelia Jude’s struggle to understand why she was the target of repetitive sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, and how unhealthy coping mechanisms―drug and alcohol abuse, reclusive behavior, and self-mutilation―didn’t heal her, but added more brokenness to her already shattered life. Her story mirrors the accounts of many women today living in the shadows of their abuse and who watch its remnants affect their marriages, damage their parenting, and cloud their judgment. Jude builds a case for faith in Christ as the only way to find peace, forgive abusers, and live a life of joy beyond the shadows of pain.
Cornelia Jude Author of Mended Faith: A Life of Abuse, Pain & Redemption.
I'm an entrepreneur, wife, and mother of six who was born and raised in Germany. Despite enduring years of sexual, physical, and mental abuse, which led to a PTSD diagnosis.
With the help of God, I've come to terms with the pain of my past and look forward to the plans He has for my future. My goal is to share with you through my life and my book how I turned my most painful memories into something positive through the strength of Christ.
I believe that we can make the choice to shed the victim label and to clothe ourselves in the love, grace, and forgiveness found in Christ. It gives us the power to move forward in power. Our job is not to right the wrongs, but instead to disturb the silence. We are survivors, not victims.
