Description

Someone in your past sold you a false story about who you are and what you’re worth. It has been holding you back for too long. Take control of your future.

A staggering one out of three women in America was a victim of sexual abuse at some point in her childhood. No matter how many years it’s been, if that’s your story, those scars are probably still with you. But even if that’s not part of your story, this audiobook is for you. Women today have been groomed for a lot more than just sex.

Using her own story of abuse, family tragedy, and rebellion, Elizabeth Melendez Fisher guides listeners toward an understanding that grooming is oftentimes subtle, but it’s always life-altering. In Groomed, Fisher incorporates the language and lessons gained over the past decade working with sex-trafficking victims and her work in ministry and counseling before that. She draws out five specific ways that women have been groomed, from physical appearance to spirituality to finances, and shows how those manipulative messages have affected the way we see our worth and how they’ve oftentimes stifled and limited us. From there, Fisher offers listeners a way to overcome their past, starting with the all-important but rarely explored idea of a selah, or a time of rest and reflection, and exploring active ways to forgive and move forward to a new level of freedom.

No one has to be defined by her past. No one has to live for her groomers. It’s time to take a look back at where we came from to escape the messages of our past and take control of our future.

Commentaires

"In Groomed Elizabeth shares a raw, heart-wrenching story, digging deeply to save others - a vital education, a sad tale, and a miracle of truth. Stopping sex trafficking and helping young women thrive is only possible through the education this book provides. And, ultimately, the sad realization that it could have been any of us!" (Dina Bair Maher, WGN-TV, Chicago, anchor/reporter)

"Groomed is a captivating must-read for empowering women to take time to reflect on pervasive areas of our pasts and begin to step out and move beyond what we were groomed to be. As I read this book, I could feel the weight of my past lifting off. Elizabeth gives riveting, action-packed steps on how we can truly grasp a future full of freedom to be all we were created to be, walking stronger in the light of our new day." (Valerie Ellery, international inspirational author, speaker, and human trafficking education specialist)

"Groomed provides both women and men with insights and observations to help them increase their self-knowledge. With that knowledge their eyes can be opened to the influences that have shaped their lives for good and for ill. With that knowledge choices can be made to restore their lives and strengthen relationships as they were meant to be." (Quin Frazer, Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP partner)

Very useful information!

I developed my own sexual abuse recovery program and have been working with women in support groups for ten years. I wanted to read/listen to this book to review it as a potential resource to recommend to the women once they complete my program. Little did I realize how much it would actually help me in the process!

Revealing and unsettling

I didn’t think this book was going to be about me. I thought I was just going to learn more about the sex trafficking epidemic, but after sharing her traumatic story, the author turns her attentions toward me, the reader, to walk me backwards into the deep recesses of my mind to uncover the ways that, yes indeed, I have been affected by one or more or the types of grooming she listed. I feel unsettled after listening to the end, however, because I lack the instructions for what to really DO next now that these dark things have been revealed to me. Recognize them. Check. Now...what? Probably need good therapist, I guess.

Good definitions but no answers

She does great identifying and explaining the 5 types of grooming. Unfortunately, she does very little to explain how to move on and transform leaving this abuse behind.
