Exposed: A Book Review

About The Book:



Exposed: Inexcusable Me . . . Irreplaceable Him
EXPOSED is a true modern day love story between God and a girl and the enemy who wants to tear them apart.
Shannon Deitz spent nearly two decades of her life in the darkest valleys of self-destruction, believing she was unworthy of God’s love. After witnessing as a child the sex and drug-induced downfall of her older sister, Shannon turned away from her Catholic faith and upbringing and found herself caught in a wild and carefree lifestyle. She drank, partied, and sought comfort in abusive relationships, only to be raped not once but twice—by two different men. Years later, after an intense spiritual battle within, Shannon found herself at rock bottom, where she finally understood the truth—that her life had never belonged to her. It had always belonged to God. He had given her the gift of free will, and although she had been tied to him since conception, he had wanted her to love him on her own.
Exposed: Inexcusable Me . . . Irreplaceable Him is one woman’s courageous journey down the path of spiritual self-discovery. Not only does this book expose the awful truths of physical and emotional abuse, but it also exposes the truth that, no matter how deeply our wounds may run, we will always be worthy of God’s healing grace.
This book offers faith-based encouragement for teenagers and adults who have suffered physical or emotional abuse. Through the extremely personal, no-holds-barred account of one woman’s journey down a self-destructive path, it addresses such issues as spiritual warfare, the need to be loved, and the need to relinquish control of one’s self to God.

My Review:
What an amazing read! This book takes you on a journey from pain and abuse to the redemption that is only found in the hope that comes from Jesus Christ. With honesty, frankness and pure emotion, I was amazed at the rawness with which Shannon wrote. The healing that has happened in the life of the author was so inspiring. Though much of the book covers issues that many of us have not experienced, we can still learn so much from it. These are issues that no one wants to talk about and fight against, but we need to. I love that through the journey Ms. Deitz went on, she has impacted the lives of so many, and taught them that our worth does not come from the world but from God! 
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
