It took courage beyond herself to find healing for childhood incest, clergy sex abuse, rape & porn & adultery in her marriage which led to a God given purpose to live free from shame! Barbara now extends that courage to those who have no voice!
Listen to the Cry of the Child was written in one week after 38 years of silence. Barbara Joy Hansen was raised out of the ashes & helps countless survivors of both domestic violence & sexual assault. Her mission has reached International TV & third world countries as she never gives up as she reaches out with hope!
Barbara wrote her memoir for the castaways, the underdog & survivors who have experienced severe trauma who are a new version of the walking wounded. She w rote her book to let them know that they are not alone, not crazy or the only one who thinks a drink or crack cocaine is the perfect solution to why their soul is void.
Barbara Joy Hansen has become the voice out of her own personal traumas of abuse not caring what the family thinks of her anymore but how she can reach millions with the hope & restoration she has received!
Listen to the Cry of the Child continues to reach many through Barbara Joy Hansen's book, support group & International TV audiences & magazine & newspaper articles. Having this money would further her cause to help those without a voice to give back to orphans in third world countries who have gone through human trafficking.
Survivors of sexual trauma often become enablers because of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Barbara's personal & vulnerable journey resulted in poor choices she made but helped her understand the 'why's of what happened to her in order to help those she now shares her story with all over the world.
