Sexual Abuse Survivor: How God Can Redeem a Shattered Life

by | May 21, 2019 | Woman

As a victim of sexual abuse in her childhood by a music minister’s son, Wendy Baisley Roche swore she would never walk into a church again. And for nearly two decades, she didn’t.

But when she discovered many years after her own abuse that her second husband had raped her daughter on a continual basis, she realized only one solution for her life that had become a chaotic mess: Jesus.

Not really believing that He could rescue her from her brokenness, Baisley-Roche says she “screamed out to God from the top of her lungs.” It took a while for God to convince her she was worthy to be loved by Him, but eventually Baisley-Roche began to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and the healing process began.

And now as a speaker and author, Bailey-Roche is helping other women to recover from similar circumstances through her own story.

“I was so insecure and such as broken woman, always trying to put on a façade that everything was good,” Baisley-Roche says. “But then, with one call where I discovered a horrible truth about my daughter, my world just came crashing down.

“But my story is not just about the horrific events that happened that took everything in my world down. It’s a story of what God can do in the midst of everything being swept away. God can rebuild, and He can rebuild bigger and better than we can ever imagine. Women can relate to my story because many have lost something, and some have lost everything along the way. But my story reveals how God can come in and heal your heart, no matter what your circumstance.”

For the rest of Wendy Baisley-Roche’s story, listen to the podcast below.
