Perfectly Broken is a riveting story of my life after my rape. Fear and rage were my closest companions, and I teeter-tottered between the two. Even with my rapist in prison and awaiting the trial, I couldn’t come to grips with my life as a victim.
Spiraling out of control, knowing this was more than I could handle, I handed my situation over to God. I found peace in the stories from the Bible but still struggled with that nagging question of “why me, God?”
A summer foreign exchange program to Spain came at the perfect time. With the court date months away, a chance to be something more than “the raped girl” was an answered prayer. The walls I had spent all year building came crashing down as I learned to laugh again, live again, and dance again.
I realized it wasn’t my situation I needed God to fix. Instead, I was the one who was broken. Piece by piece, He rebuilt me in His image.
