Charisma Media, Jun 28, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 384 pages
Based on the author’s compelling true story of being freed from years of sexual abuse by her brother and forgiving him, Scars Don’t Hurt chronicles Davidson’s battle and ultimate victory over tragic circumstances. 

Born into a Mennonite family and defiled from the ages of 4 to 13, Davidson writes: “The greatest gift God has ever given me in my life is a healing so perfect, so miraculous and so complete, that I can rejoice that my abuser’s been forgiven…There are many people in the world who would wish someone like him a spot in the hottest of hell, but I am glad to know a God who will forgive sins as grave as this.”

Written in an easy-to-read style, Scars Don’t Hurt is not only the author’s story of redemption from sexual abuse, it also tells the stories of three generations’ victory through faith in Jesus Christ over broken relationships, financial ruin, and emotional upheaval.

Scars Don’t Hurt is a must-read for anyone who has faced sexual abuse, childhood trauma or insurmountable odds and looked to overcome them through the power of forgiveness and redemption.
