Item Description...
Overview
believe, that behind the Parsonage door, their beloved Pastor hid the Ugly Secret - of "deception." His 'emotional battering' stripped his wife, Carol, of her Self-Worth, Identity and Respect. His family "Suffered in Silence" while hiding, ever Darkening Spots, on his "Clerical Collar." Even Dick's Employer refused to believe the pleadings of his wife. * Are You a Pastor's Wife-hiding your shame of abuse behind makeup and an artificial smile? * Does Your 'Christian' Husband-use the Bible to Batter you into believing that you are a failure as a Christian and a wife? Religious Leaders MUST address the Explosion of domestic violence that hides behind the 'protected' doors of the Parsonage and the Christian home. The Church has been Silent and in Denial too long. Robert Coombs MA, In his Chapter, "The Blameless Man?" suggests ways in which Pastors and Christian Men can avoid stress, addictive behaviors and keep from falling into the 'Woman Trap.' He also recommends that the Church and Religious Organizations require accountability for their members and employees who are physically and emotionally abusive. Mable Dunbar, Ph.D., in her Chapter, "The Power of Emotional Healing" shows that "A Broken Woman or Man CAN be Repaired!" You don't need to "Suffer In Silence" anymore. By reading this book you can take the first step to Breaking the Silence. No more hiding; No more shame. You are "PRICELESS-NOT WORTHLESS" "For God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of Power, of Love and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fascinating Story of an Unfaithful Pastor  Jul 20, 2008
Velva Holt, the author of "We Suffered In Silence", lived the story she wrote. Far from being a boring autobiography, the story pulled me in and I read the book in one sitting. It was sad to read how the pastor's wife and daughter suffered emotionally in knowing that he was sleeping with women in the church whom he was supposed to be counseling. The story also points out how leaders of the church seemed unwilling to believe that one of their pastors was being unfaithful, so they let it go on for many, many years.

Happily, through God's healing power, both the wife and daughter eventually found peace. In fact, Virginia Holt-Coombs, the daughter of the author, wrote a chapter with her insight on the topic. Virginia's husband, Bob Coombs, and Mable Dunbar, both professional counselors, each wrote a chapter providing helpful advice to readers who might be dealing with similar trauma in their own lives.

I highly recommend this book.

Emotional abuse is a near death experience. When the abuser is your pastor husband you would rather BE dead. "We Suffered In Silence" is a true story written by Velva Holt who was the victim/wife, goes from pain to victory. Sadly there is not a happy ending for the abusive husband but the wife's victory brings healing to herself and to her hurting readers. Included are chapters written by her daughter and two credentialed christian counselors. Pictures of the family and resource material for victims create a personal touch that draws you into this sad but courageous family.WE SUFFERED IN SILENCE
