Summary

God's amazing grace lifted Wendy from the dark incestuous world of severe child abuse. The author's factual account of her journey from wounded child to warrior sharing the light and joy that comes from forgiveness and healing through Jesus Christ is emotion-packed and unforgettable.

Wendy describes her five goals in writing GOOD MOURNING.
1) I want to offer hope and comfort to a generation of children, adolescents, and others who are currently the victims of sexual, emotional, and physical abuse and severe trauma. I will show them safe ways to escape evil abusers.
2) I wish to reach out to those who have been victims in the past.
3) I hope to reach out to those who suspect child abuse is occurring and arm them with information on how to identify the facts and, if necessary, teach them how to intervene.
4) I desire to motivate abusive parents, family members, and others to stop abusing, get treatment, be accountable to persons in authority, and seek forgiveness (as my mother eventually did of me), so that hopefully they can be reconciled with their loved ones.
5) I want to reach out to concerned loved ones, counselors, clergy, teachers, and others to better equip them with information and resources that will enable them to be more effective in their vital roles.
