We believe our testimony reaches beyond the countless survivors of sexual abuse; everyone has been through something difficult in their life

Dawn Compton and Amanda Schrader

People all around the world are beginning to break their silence from the hold that sexual abuse has had on them

Dawn Compton and Amanda Schrader share their testimony of experiencing the restoring love of God through their journey as nurses and Christ-Followers in Dawn Compton and Amanda Schrader’s new book, Nursing the Wounds: Two Nurses’ Extraordinary Story of Faith and Overcoming Sexual Abuse, ($15.49, paperback, 9781545629918; $7.99, e-book, 9781545629925) readers will discover the authors’ powerful true story of surviving childhood sexual abuse. After first meeting at a backyard Bible club in rural Mississippi in 1999, these two survivors serendipitously crossed paths again as nurses with a God-given purpose, together recounting their stories of healing in Jesus Christ.

“We believe our testimony reaches beyond the countless survivors of sexual abuse; everyone has been through something difficult in their life,” states the authors. “This is a reflection of Romans 8:28 and how God truly can use those difficult times to change your life!” With Nursing the Wounds, Compton and Schrader aim to encourage those affected by abuse or other adversities to begin the journey to healing and wholeness. “People all around the world are beginning to break their silence from the hold that sexual abuse has had on them. Many have stayed silent for years and are just now beginning to process their experiences. We've been there; ours is a message of hope!”

Dawn Compton holds a master's degree in nursing and has worked as a registered nurse for over fifteen years. Amanda Schrader is a licensed practical nurse and is currently working toward becoming a registered nurse. Both are wives, mothers, advocates, and Christ-followers, and they are currently working on their second book, Jumping Ship, which will be a devotional book.
