Silence Broken and Stigmas Shattered — Help for Incest Survivors Is Here

Fans of Erin Merryn's heart-wrenching debut memoir Stolen Innocence were left wondering at the end what would become of an emotionally fragile Erin after her confrontation with the reality of being a child of incest and molestation. In Living for Today, readers find that Erin cultivated the strength to face her abuser and eventually facilitated and experienced relief from years of emotional restlessness, while also igniting the beginnings of a new fearless journey. Living for Todaychronicles that journey, which began with the unearthing of private shame and releasing of ugly memories and letting go of guilt and becoming the mouthpiece of millions of her generation.

Through her compelling narrative, readers will learn how they, too, can:

  • Learn to look forward, in spite of an abusive past
  • Block off any impending guilt from outing an abuser
  • Deal with interfamily strife as a result of incest and molestation
  • Shake off the "victim"tag and replace it with one that reads "survivor"

Living for Today is Merryn's contribution to an audience that has felt victimized, ashamed, isolated, and silenced by its abusers and offers a roadmap for self-discovery, forgiveness, and empowerment to help readers rid the stigma they have attached to their trauma and live fully and fearlessly for today.
