"During the beginning stages of my healing process from rape, I realized I had been wearing a mask, not dealing with the painful aftermath of sexual trauma. In my book, My Lemonade Recipe: Turning Life's Sour Experiences Into Something Sweet, I recount my incredible healing journey."

"This book brings understanding. This book is small but powerfully packed with truth and personal experience. Can I just say this is a good book? If you are a survivor of sexual childhood abuse, this book will challenge you to greater healing and assist you in understanding more about your experience, and offer hope. You may recognize the similarity of your own personal injury. There is a great benefit in realizing you are not alone in your trial. If you are a close personal friend or family member, this will help to bring perception and awareness to a little of the mystery of what victims of childhood sexual assault endure during the period of assault and how it can follow some into adulthood. Again, though small, it is filled with powerfully packed words that describe the author’s personal experience minus all the usual fluff. What you will find missing here is the extra verbiage that authors’ will sometimes use to pad their writing. This is a straightforward account. What I love is that the author’s spirituality flows from the pages, and The Holy Spirit’s ministry delightfully jumps into the reader’s consciousness. I highly recommend that you read this book, especially if you have been sexually abused as a child."
"Healing for survivors of sexual abuse...As someone that has been in the anti-rape movement since 2003, this book offers a vivid account of the real emotional struggles that survivors of rape and incest undergo. It is not easy to heal after sexual abuse, but the author offers a spiritual tool that survivors can use to heal in a positive form from this doleful experience. The biggest challenge that all survivors face after abuse is to heal from it in a form that causes no harm to themselves nor their loved ones. My Lemonade Recipe provides survivors with the positive tools they need to cope and heal from sexual violence."
"The author is very transparent and poignant in sharing her story. My Lemonade Recipe: Turning Life's Sour Experiences Into Something Sweet is a powerful testimony of the power of forgiveness in overcoming pain and emotional hurts. This book is a must-read for anyone who wishes to be set free from a traumatic past."
