Overcoming the Struggle from Within: A Collection of True Short Stories for the Battered and Abused Everywhere
ISBN: 1462720919

CrossBooks. 2012

In 1968, in a small rural town on a hilltop in Vermont, one three-year- old girl was aware of the turmoil and sadness in her house. Her experiences are at the heart of Overcoming the Struggle from Within. She was the subject of abuse by her family members, school bullies, and even her teachers. Living constantly in fear, she shook and was not completely in control of how she responded. Feeling invisible to the world, with no one to turn to, the little girl wondered if there was more to life than her scary experiences. Fearing that her mother would die early and that she would have to take her own life to escape the pain, she fought daily for answers and relief from her troubles. Friendless and feeling hated by family and schoolmates, she is introduced to church, which begins to shape her life. She experiences the redeeming love of Jesus Christ. Overcoming the Struggle from Within presents a collection of true short stories for battered and abused individuals. Author Penny C. Bibbs offers Scripture passages, encouragement, and prayers to those who are afflicted by bullying and abuse.
