God can redeem a troubled past. Author Mary DeMuth talks about how her life changed when she chose to forgive her abusers.
If you met Mary DeMuth today, her joy might confuse you. Who she has become in light of tragedy is a testimony of Jesus’s ability to transform a broken life. A child of three divorces, a victim of repeated sexual assault at five-years old, with a father who died when she was ten, Mary wanted to end her life in her teens. In the tenth grade, she heard about Jesus, and she knew she wanted to chase after Him for the rest of her life. Thankfully, He chased her.
Mary is the author of forty books, including her latest: We Too: How the Church Can Respond Redemptively to the Sexual Abuse Crisis (Harvest House 2019). She has spoken around the world about God’s ability to transform a life, bringing needed freedom to her audiences. She’s been on CNN and featured in The Washington Post, and she’s spoken in Munich, Johannesburg, Port au Prince, Geneva and Monte Carlo, and planted a church with her family in southern France.
Her best work? Being a mom to three amazing young adults and the wife of 28 years to Patrick. She makes her home in Dallas alongside her husband, an energetic chocolate lab, and a fuzzy black cat.
