The following letter, featured by Covenant Eyes, was written by counselor, speaker, teacher and author, Kimberly Johnson. Her experience and knowledge come not only from the hundreds of stories she has heard, but from seeking healing in her on her own journey of sexual brokenness.
“Dear Precious One,
I have been where you are. I am no stranger to the shame that you feel. Although they are now in my rear view mirror, the horrible self-hate, the embarrassment, the sexual desires that I feared I could not control, the depression, the regret, and so many other emotions were all too real to me not long ago.
When I was about 11 years old, I came across a hidden stash of pornography under a relative’s mattress. Very quickly I began intentionally seeking out what I accidentally stumbled across.”
