Jacksonville, Florida – Author Aminata Conteur, a 13-year survivor of domestic violence, authored a book which provides Biblically-based advice for abused Christian women. Author of Abused? Who Me?, Aminata Conteur, is passionate about helping women who are in abusive relationships. As an ex-wife of a pastor, she, herself, was abused in her marriage for more than 12 years. She clearly understands what Christian women who are dealing with domestic violence are going through.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and author, Aminata Conteur, is using this opportunity to promote the benefits her book can provide. The author has often shared her book for free, not just to celebrities, but also to everyday people on the streets, in churches, with domestic violence centers, co-workers, family and friends.
Many domestic violence books and advisors don’t address the spiritual needs and concerns of Christian women. Abused? Who Me?, available on Amazon Store and Smashwords., is helping women, especially Christian women, overcome their abusive circumstances. Often when a Christian woman seeks counselling, there is still a stigma attached, and she’s advised to stay and pray.
Christian women have a particular kind of challenge when it comes to domestic violence, so Abused? Who Me? intentionally deals with this category of people with an intent to provide them with knowledge, and the tools to liberate themselves. The author provides 10 warning signs for women to recognize abuse. Rather than leave women with only two common options that sometimes endanger their well-being, the book not only reassures women of God’s love for them, but also gives them practical scriptural solutions.
Being in a constant state of physical and emotional abuse is one of the most damning things that can ever happen to a woman. For a Christian woman, the issue is even more daring, as religion, society, and family enforce a different type of emotional restriction on this group. The victim is often left doubting whether she’s being abused. This book helps women discern the truth of their circumstances.
Abused? Who Me? is a book that offers practical solutions and tips to help women see abuse happening in their relationships and in the relationships of those they care about. The author is also cognizant that Christians, who have been taught about God’s will, to love and forgive, sometimes miss the common signs of abuse. They sometimes excuse behavior that even God Almighty doesn’t excuse.
In an easy-to-read vignette format, this book helps to identify the signs of abuse and gives suggestions on what to do, regardless of whether the abused woman chooses to stay or leave. The book is a helpful read for non-Christian women as well, to help them find their voice and fight back against the oppression of those who are supposed to protect them.
Christian women have had to deal with abusive spouses, in silence, in order to remain in their marriage or have been forced to conform to the expectations of their religious community. Author, Aminata Conteur, is passionate about helping all women find solutions to their domestic abuse situations.
