    About the book

    The night I was raped, my soul was murdered, and I received a lifelong membership to a club I had not sought to join. I tell you my story with raw and vulnerable honesty to help those who are also “club members.”

    Eight minutes of one dark night in a college campus parking garage changed Amanda’s life. After the rape, she spiraled down, battling shame, denial, and the agonizing pain of not being believed. Those eight minutes started a lifelong journey that eventually included forgiveness and walking in freedom and liberty through her faith in Christ.

    Amanda Collins Johnson courageously shares her testimony of going from merely existing to being able to help those who have survived sexual assault know that living an abundant life in Christ is possible. Insightful tools for understanding the survivor’s heart will assist those who love the victims of assault as well as those who advocate for them and minister to them.

    “Amanda’s courageous testimony after the trauma of rape is both profound and insightful for anyone who has experienced rape, anyone who is supporting a surviver of rape and anyone who works with rape victims. As I read this book, I felt as though Amanda was having a personal conversation with me while sharing her insights as she peeled back the layers of the trauma onion. Thus, giving me the gift of better understanding my own experience. This is a story of hope and healing. Thank you, Amanda.”
