the tragedies of life can be used for good

Recently Jerry Sandusky was found guilty of 45 counts of child sexual abuse charges. According to the organization Darkness to Light, there are more than 39 million sexual abuse survivors in America. In her new book “My Favorite Cashew” (published by WestBow Press), C.B. Anderson breaks the silence and shares both the trials and the triumphs of a man who endured the physical, emotional and psychological repercussions of a debilitating childhood experiencing molestation, writing of her husband Tom Anderson, MD, sharing with readers a story of pain, but one of great love and laughter.

“This is my husband’s story,” Anderson explains simply about her new book. Tom was a well-respected family physician who cared for others while carrying his own burdens and running from his own demons.

“He was a brilliant, compassionate physician, who was loved by his patients and his community in spite of his personal struggles with the repercussions of childhood molestation and with adult onset of manic-depressive disorder.”

Through Tom’s powerful story, Anderson hopes readers will see that just because a person is deeply scarred by life, it does not limit God from using that person to show His love and compassion to others.

“My Favorite Cashew” reveals how, with love, even the tragedies of life can be used for good.
