Speak The Unspeakable: Real Talk on Sex, Secrets and Being Set Free
In Speak the Unspeakable, Good builds on her work with Real Talk, providing the ultimate key to unlock the spirit of silence and brokenness tearing apart churches and families today. Good guides and supports readers on their journey to trade unspoken problems for unspeakable results, giving them permission to say what they thought they couldn’t, changing the trajectory of their lives, and discovering their purpose for impacting others.
Speaking to the urgent need for this message in our culture, Good says, “This book is part of a biblical approach to spiritual healing that has fallen entirely out of the discipleship process and adult education curriculum in Christian teaching. We talk a lot about spiritual growth, but we don’t talk about purging the hidden, raw brokenness to become whole. Nobody’s telling the whole story.” Until now. “People want an off-ramp from hiding, looking the other way, and staying silent. They’re starving for real and total change by speaking the unspeakable out loud and finally living free.”
With decades of experience in counseling, ministry, inner healing, and business entrepreneurship, Good established The Foundation United, through which she collaboratively brings together other leading organizations domestically and globally to exponentially eradicate sex trafficking, exploitation, and childhood sexual abuse. She uses her Real Talk tools to awaken families, individuals, organizations, and most of all the Church worldwide, guarding it from sexual scandal, creating a space where children and adults can speak up if they feel unsafe, and helping men and women heal from past or present trauma.
Groomed: Overcoming the Messages That Shaped Our Past and Limit Our Future
Someone in your past sold you a false story about who you are and what you’re worth. It has been holding you back for too long. Take control of your future.
A staggering one out of three women in America was a victim of sexual abuse at some point in her childhood. No matter how many years it’s been, if that’s your story, those scars are probably still with you. But even if that’s not part of your story, this book is for you. Women today have been groomed for a lot more than just sex.
Using her own story of abuse, family tragedy, and rebellion, Elizabeth Melendez Fisher guides readers toward an understanding that grooming is oftentimes subtle, but it’s always life-altering. In Groomed Fisher incorporates the language and lessons gained over the past decade working with sex trafficking victims and her work in ministry and counseling before that. She draws out five specific ways that women have been groomed, from physical appearance to spirituality to finances, and shows how those manipulative messages have affected the way we see our worth and how they’ve oftentimes stifled and limited us. From there Fisher offers readers a way to overcome their past, starting with the all-important but rarely explored idea of a selah, or a time of rest and reflection, and exploring active ways to forgive and move forward to a new level of freedom.
No one has to be defined by her past. No one has to live for her groomers. It’s time to take a look back at where we came from to escape the messages of our past and take control of our future.
