Tonight's special guest is Sherri L Board from Rancho Mirage, California, a survivor of childhood sexual, physical, and emotional abuse and author of book-length non-fiction, critically acclaimed novels, and numerous articles for magazines with a national distribution. A survivor of childhood abuse herself, Sherri blogs and advocates to help and support her fellow survivors. In her book “What We're Afraid to Ask: 365 Days of Healing for Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse” Sherri and her co-author Anna M. Jones ask 365 tough questions about child abuse. These questions are answered from a biblical perspective and from a psychological perspective. Sherri's a Certified Temperament Counselor and a clinical member of the National Christian Counselors Association. In childhood she experienced years of sexual assaults, violent eruptions and mental abuse from her pedophile stepfathers. "As I grew older I knew that I needed to get some help with my very low self-esteem and other issues like anxiety, dissociation, and learning how to untangle myself from the lies of abuse," Sherri says. She goes to explain that, "Looking back I believe the way in which I coped with what happened was to become a workaholic." We're glad she decided to devote herself to recovery. "I really didn't start healing until a psychologist started talking to me about my spirituality. I became interested in Christian Psychology and went on to get my master's in Christian Counseling." We welcome Sherri to the NAASCA family!
