This week Ashley and I had the privilege of speaking with author, blogger, speaker, and abuse victim advocate, Mary DeMuth. Mary shared about her childhood abuse story, gave intimate marriage advice, and told us why surrounding herself with strong women is important to her.
“People who get married who have not been sexually abused, but they grew up in a Christian subculture, they’re starting at 0 and suddenly they have to be at a 10. They have to be really excited about sex. But if you’re starting at -28 [as a sexual abuse survivor], where you can’t even see it as beautiful and all you can think of is violation, then it’s very, very hard.”
