“Forgiving God”: a vital book addressing the questions of abuse victims toward God. “Forgiving God” is the creation of published author Patricia Schultz, a mother and licensed clinical social worker from small-town Wisconsin who has also assisted advocate groups to combat human trafficking.

Schultz writes about spiritual abuse: “The primary thing she taught me throughout my childhood was that I was her mistake, her punishment from God. I was the result of an affair, and even though she never verbalized this with me, I was well aware that I did not matter to her in any way. I was taught to believe in Christianity, and God was used as a weapon to teach me how he should be feared. Teachings were focused strictly on the law of the Bible and the grace of the Gospel was nonexistent. Church was primarily for weddings and funerals, except I needed to attend Sunday school and had to be confirmed within the local church as this was what looked appropriate to others within the community. But even with these forced teachings, I would be condemned. It didn’t matter how I lived my life; God didn’t love me or want anything to do with me. He simply used me as his tool, and no matter what I did, I would never be saved. I don’t know if you have ever heard of ‘hell on earth,’ but I honestly believe this is where I was.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Patricia Schultz’s new book is a heart-felt memoir of childhood trauma and abuse that leads the author to an understanding that helps her heal just not herself, but others.

Schultz transcends her troubling experience, guiding the reader on a path towards forgiveness and rebuilding their relationship with God by healing the hidden, underserved aspect of trauma: the spiritual.
