MY STORY

I am a survivor of physical, verbal and sexual abuse that began at a very young age.  It is only recently that I have been permitted to speak about it.  And I wish to use my newly acquired consent to confirm that regardless of experiences and/or time passed, there is always hope.
 
I love reading and have an affection for words.  It began in grade school with the Little House on the Prairie series which led to Stephen King and every genre in between, including biographies and true stories.  
 
Currently I am working on my next book.  And when I am not writing, I support my reading habit as a massage therapist.  I grew up north of Cincinnati, Ohio and continue to live there with my husband and our rottenly spoiled and beloved dogs.

MY STORY

I am a survivor of physical, verbal and sexual abuse that began at a very young age.  It is only recently that I have been permitted to speak about it.  And I wish to use my newly acquired consent to confirm that regardless of experiences and/or time passed, there is always hope.
 
I love reading and have an affection for words.  It began in grade school with the Little House on the Prairie series which led to Stephen King and every genre in between, including biographies and true stories.  
 
Currently I am working on my next book.  And when I am not writing, I support my reading habit as a massage therapist.  I grew up north of Cincinnati, Ohio and continue to live there with my husband and our rottenly spoiled and beloved dogs.

While everyone yearns for freedom, many live silently bound by chains of secret shame. Molded from past experiences, these chains become evermore restrictive as a victim’s story remains untold. In her new book, Stacey Workman powerfully models how honesty and vulnerability can unlock needed healing and transformation.

LATEST BOOK

Giving Back the Shame

Nonfiction

I spent the majority of my life in a dark cloud of shame—shame of my own making and shame bestowed upon me by others. Shame that arose from the physical, mental, and sexual abuse I experienced. After exhausting all known outlets to try and rid myself of the shame, I was down to my last option. And I took it. And it worked.

The final step in the process is to not be ashamed of my shame. To do so, I have to let the shame out and expose it to the light. That is why I am sharing the story of my shame and how I gave it back.

Someone once wrote that the unexposed is the unhealed. This deeply honest book is about exposure, both the dark side of the word and the hidden promise of redemption and restoration. Sadly, too many of us will identify with Stacey’s story and hopefully we will find solace and healing through it as well.
