Why, when we live in a sexually obsessed culture, do we hide our sexual brokenness?

So many children are emotionally abandoned after abuse and left to navigate their way alone through life, struggling to find sexual wholeness. It takes a great deal of courage to confront an abuser. The shame, along with the lie that we are not good enough, lingers long after the abuse. I believe it is what fuels the secrets. If victims were able to tell their stories safely and freely, I believe they would be able to heal far more easily from childhood abuse.

“What a great example of ‘You have to live it if you’re going to give it.’ Caren has helped all of us live it better.”

Stephen Arterburn, Founder of New Life Ministries

“I Lost My Marbles is an authentic, vulnerable look at a journey no one ever signs up to take. Written with courage and honesty, Caren Dillman’s story reveals the abuse that many suffer at the hand of a trusted loved one. Her book is also a humorous and candid love story, and a narrative of faith that is developed in the midst of the storm. The powerful conclusion will take your breath away.”

Gayle M. Samples, PhD

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | Executive Director at Emmaus Road Counseling

“A powerful read, presented with honesty and hope. Caren Dillman’s unflinching narrative of trauma strikes deep in the heart. We feel her pain, her shame, and her confusion. We cheer her victories. Most of all, we come away with a profound appreciation for the author’s story and her willingness to bring it into the light.”

“Everybody's got a story to tell and everybody's got a wound to be healed.” The first time I heard those lyrics sung by the artist Plump, I wanted to declare, “Yes we all have a story to tell and we all have wounds to heal. A light needs to be shined on the truth and our stories need to be told!” Imagine what could happen if we believed we were safe to share our stories without consequences of judgment or rejection? Our freedom and path towards healing would be liberating. When I first heard that song I was in the middle of writing my own healing story and I was again facing another roadblock. The fear that kept hindering me were questions such as, “how will other’s respond to my story, will it make a difference to anyone else? Can I risk being real enough so that my story will offer hope to others?” When I faced those roadblocks I reminded myself what I had read from the Bible: “You must be very careful not to forget the things you have seen God do for you. Keep reminding yourselves, and tell your children and grandchildren as well.” Deut 4:9 (CEV) It would be years after struggling through my own recovery before I would take the risk to share what God had done for me. Like many people I felt isolated in my pain. I worked hard to hide the parts of myself that I believed would be rejected. I had repressed most of the sexual abuse from my childhood. I was unable to make the connection that the abuse had done damage which made it easy for me to believe that I was unworthy of love and acceptance. Childhood sexual abuse results in long-term side effects. One of them includes the risk of re-victimization. It creates serious problems for the individual, their family and society. Adult women with a history of childhood sexual abuse are more likely to suffer from depression, eating disorders, poor self esteem, and suicidal thoughts as well as other problems. Although the heightened anxiety I’ve lived with has been challenging, the most significant effect was my inability to be comfortable in an intimate relationship with God. I had to learn that the shame I had lived with did not belong to me. It belonged to those who were the victimizers. And as is often too common, out of the shame and subsequent secrets I was left feeling confused and unworthy. At times in my life, when it was obvious that I needed to work on healing from betrayal and hurts I was unaware how extensive the plague of childhood abuse is in our society. Twenty-five years ago I learned that one out of every three girls will be sexually abused before the age eighteen. The statistic is nearly the same for boys will be abused? With increase awareness and knowledge, along with advances in education and treatment, the epidemic hasn’t decreased but rather increased. Who would have imagined that in America we would be faced with sexual slavery and trafficking of young girls? However, the stats don’t tell the extent of the problem. How many children, teens and adults have never told anyone their story? So why, when we live in a sexually obsessed culture, do we continue to hide our sexual brokenness? I know that so many children are emotionally abandoned after abuse and left to navigate their way alone through life, struggling to find sexual wholeness. I’ve heard and read their stories. It takes a great deal of courage to confront an abuser. I discovered that shame, along with the infamous lie that we’re not good enough, lingers long after the abuse. I believe it is what fuels the secrets. If victims were able to tell their stories safely and freely, and were believed, I believe they would be able to heal far more easily from childhood abuse. Through my own therapy work and as a psychotherapist to many others I began to recognize that there are many other factors that contribute to a child growing up without self-esteem and without confidence. Even an environment without overt sexual abuse can still be invalidating. I knew I couldn’t pass onto my children what I did not possess. I couldn’t teach them to love themselves if I secretly hated who I was. I had to find a way to parent differently than was role modeled for me. We all make mistakes as parents. The mistakes alone are not what contribute to hurting our children. It’s the unwillingness to own them and seek to do differently. At any point in time either one of my parents could have chosen to respond differently to me. They chose to reject me over seeking conflict resolution. It was left up to me to navigate through the tricky path of forgiveness. It was a slow process that happened gradually in stages. I hung onto the hope that one day they would come to me and ask forgiveness. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I’ve heard individual’s stories all the time. Someone would come into my office and one of the first things I wanted to know was, “what is your story? What were you hoping to gain by coming here? Can I walk along side of you and help you on this journey? All of the stories I hear are as unique and original as the individual client. I have learned to love the process of hearing these stories because I know how healing the telling of them is. Some of what I’m told has been difficult to hear. At times I have been shocked and stunned with what I’ve heard. I am amazed at how they have survived. For many of these clients, I am the first one they risked sharing these stories with. I have shared my personal story in my book, “I Lost My Marbles.” I pray you will find an opportunity to share yours. You can email me at Caren_dillman@hotmail.com.

Diamonds and Perils is about the life of World War ll Navy veteran Johnny Cantrell of Bremen, Georgia, which started when his fellow Navy vet urged the author to write a newspaper article about him. Johnny spent little time in the Navy compared to career veterans due to the crushing toll taken on his diminutive body by the world’s most horrible conflict. Despite a hearing loss and a long recovery from battle fatigue, his legacy as a faithful member of what Tom Brokaw called The Greatest Generation is assured. Johnny joined in the capture of Iwo Jima, Okinawa, the Marianas, and other Pacific islands, witnessing the hoisting of the Stars and Stripes over Mt. Suribachi. His strict Methodist upbringing, the Boy Scout skills he learned, and family work ethic in the agricultural south of the twenties, thirties, and forties stood him in good stead as Quartermaster on a landing craft, without which the U.S. Marines could not have functioned. Johnny tells in a riveting fashion how milking cows, church life, camp experiences, hard work, and even funny happenings all helped facilitate his military competence and character when bombs and bullets started flying. Although he was never shot and never killed an enemy, he faced the deafening noise and fear produced by war. He came home a nervous wreck with a severe hearing deficit, but because of his innate abilities and the mentorship of his older brother, he became a highly successful businessman, dealing in diamonds and pearls; hence the title Diamonds and Perils.

I have tried to recall the tragic events happen in Ten years span from 1985 to 1995, in my life 
Some of the events:  I call it ‘Wake-Up Calls’ because those calls were an indications, a gesture, a warning to change the path I was following with the blinkers on my eyes. Call after call to awake me and put me on the right path. First call was a near miss accident where I would have been….. The second call, my elder brother died in a car accident and four weeks later my mother passed away. The third call, the three D’s, friends Devdutt, Damian and Dominic had an accident.
Three warnings are norm but I had the fourth and final warning……….. when I had to ‘Wake-Up’.

The book covers actual experiences and reflections through the diaries of a UN Staff Member stationed in the Green Zone/ also called the International Zone in Baghdad-Iraq. The original staff’s mission was planned for 180 days, yet it was extended later to cover a longer period from January 2006 to September 2007.
It is a story about the daily life of the author, colleagues, and counterparts, national and international staffs working with the UN, other International Agencies, Diplomatic Missions, as well as officers, parliamentarians and employees of the Iraqi Government during tough times in an unstable country.
While all international staffs were not allowed to leave the well fortified and safe grounds of the Green Zone, except in very limited cases and when given prior security authorization always escorted with heavily armed professional military force, the author had the advantage and flexibility of residing inside the Green Zone, yet having at the same time the freedom, as an Iraqi national, to leave unescorted to the dangerous Red Zone. Therefore, he was in a position to reflect the tough and risky daily life of suffering Iraqis bearing the brunt due to security deterioration as well as other hardships and lack of basic needs and services.
Mentioning real names of certain, UN and Iraqi, high ranking national and international officials was necessary for the true credible sequence of events with no intention of compromising any one, but just to reflect the genuine happenings during that period of time, in the Green Zone, the Red Zone, and in Iraq, from the author’s perspective about what actually happened in a story worth to be told.

A few short months later he finds himself in Atlanta, standing in the sanctuary of Ebenezer Baptist Church, being interviewed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for a position on SCLC's field staff. As a young foot soldier in the Civil Rights Movement, John Reynolds was an eyewitness to history. In The Fight for Freedom, he shares his experiences in some of the hot spots of that day, such as Selma, Birmingham, and Mississippi. A passionate and dedicated soldier, Reynolds was jailed more than twenty times and beaten on a number of occasions as he went through some of the toughest battles of the Movement and played a role in awakening the national conscience and redeeming the soul of America.
