Marjorie McKinnon author of "Repair Your Life"

Author and wonder woman Marjorie McKinnon joined me on Page Readers to discuss her book "REPAIR Your Life: A Program for Recovery from Incest & Childhood Sexual Abuse."

I say wonder woman and once you hear Marjorie's story you will understand.  At an early age she was raped by her own father.  After suffering years of abuse she finally ran away from home only to find herself in a deadly cycle of abusive relationships.  Only after years of self discovery and relying on her own desire to overcome her past has she at last found peace.

It was during her years of trying to find that peace that she developed her own recovery system.  REPAIR is actually an acronym for her program = Recognition, Entry, Process, Awareness, Insight and Rhythm. 

Also out of all that tragedy, Marjorie has reached out to other victims by establishing The Lamplighters organization.  With over 90 chapters world wide, Marjorie is able to touch the lives of so many, helping them find the way out of their own dark circumstances.

People like Marjorie amaze me.  She turned a horrible experience into something good.  Even more, she's taking that good and working miracles in other people's lives. 

Yes, she gets a wonder woman award from me!
