About the Book

White as Snow.  Can a person truly experience freedom from the guilt and shame left in the wake of sexual abuse and adultery?  Can women and men alike be free to talk about these topics without the need to hide or cover up the truth?  Can we come to grips with the definition of a “wolf” as Jesus defined it?  White as Snow: Recovering from Sexual Abuse and Adultery is a relevant, open, and honest look at the effects of abuse from both perspectives of the abused and abuser, and how it is possible that God redeems and offers freedom to both.  Women who have been sexually abused and/or have committed adultery desperately need to hear from other women who have not only survived these circumstances but experienced miraculous healing.  Here is a woman who understands.  This book provides an open door for small-group discussion and healing through fellowship with other survivors.


About the Author

Shelly Clearman Blank is a graduate of the University of Idaho, and earned her master’s degree there as a Wright Fellow in the field of curriculum and instruction.  She is also a national board-certified teacher in early childhood literacy.  Additionally, she has led adult and young women’s small-group Bible studies.  She and her husband have been trained in and lead small groups in various marriage mentoring capacities.


The book ties directly to national statistics but also to her personal experiences as a sexually abused child, teenager, and the aftershock results of unhealed abuse in her adult life which led to an adulterous relationship during the course of her twenty-two-year marriage.  These scenarios are all too common, yet left highly undisclosed.  Shelly believes it is time to unlock the doors on this common struggle and open hearts to the love and freedom in Christ, who longs to heal the wounds left long after the relationships are over. 


Shelly is a native of Montana and resides in Idaho with her husband and children.  She continues to teach, write, and lead women's study groups.
