I wrote a memoir based on the time of my life when I was in an abusive marriage. It is a double-testimony, if you will. I wanted to show, rather than tell, how a woman can keep a dangerous secret that endangers her life every day and why she would stay. I also wanted to show victims the good that can come of fighting against those reasons. The other side of my testimony, the bigger side, is how God is the only one I couldn't be isolated from. How I'd spanned the belief of my childhood that he was always within earshot to believing he could see but didn't care which evolved into my begging him to take me in my sleep and then being so angry when I woke up that I cursed him. Only when I'd decided to hand it over into his complete control did he light the space I was trapped within and allowed me to escape. It is not written in a 'preachy' way but just honestly how it all unfolded, even the ugly parts I'm not at all proud of. I wanted to add something to the backmatter of the book to help others be led to salvation with Christ. He may be their only hope. I'm scared of doing this wrong. I would love some input on what you would include.
