Summary
Like millions of other women, CNN's Headline News and truTV's In Session anchor Christi Paul blamed herself for the emotional abuse heaped on her by her first husband, whose violent, profanity-laced tirades left her feeling as though she had no value, no self-worth, and nowhere to turn for help. Then one day, when Christi was taking refuge in a church parking lot, the verse "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding" popped into her head. In that moment, she realized she did have someplace to turn after all. Holding fast to her faith, Christi began the arduous process of rebuilding her self-image and regaining control of her life. Now happily remarried and the mother of three girls, Christi feels called to share her story in the hope that other victims will find courage to seek the help they desperately need and deserve. Written with great candor and poignancy, Love Isn't Supposed to Hurt chronicles Christi's personal experience of dealing with emotional abuse and shows how-with God's help, some unconventional therapy, and the support of family and friends-she was able to break the cycle of abuse, regain her sense of self-worth, and discover what true love is really all about
Summary
The television news anchor recalls how her faith helped her rebuild her life after being in an abusive marriage, and provides advice for others in similar circumstances
