I am not my story and you aren’t either

According to an American Psychological Association article, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says one in four girls are sexually abused before the age of 18. Of those who survive, many still face effects as they reach adulthood. Author Lou Bishop lives to tell her story and others.

In her new book, Lyah! Lyah! Pants on Fyah!, she shares stories from women who are childhood sexual abuse survivors and provides tools for healing and ending the intergenerational cycle of abuse. Bishop’s novel addresses the impact of low self-esteem, codependency, and toxic shame and highlights the power of love, acceptance, and redemption.

“The stories show the long-term impact of childhood sexual abuse,” said Bishop. “I am not my story and you aren’t either.”

As an author and motivational speaker, Bishop has made it her mission to advocate for women’s rights. Her courage and confidence shines in Lyah! Lyah! Pants on Fyah! as she offers advice that can help everyone live more fulfilling lives.

“Even if you have not been a victim, the tools presented in the book can help you rise above hardships through spiritual healing,” said Bishop.
