Self publishing a book is an exciting undertaking. Because we understand the dedication that is required to write a quality book, we like to feature our top authors each week so that you can get to know a little bit more about them and their book. This week, we are featuring Sonya S. Molina’s The Nightmare Before Jesus.
In her latest book, self-publishing Outskirts Press author, Sonya S. Molina, shares a powerful story that lays bare her own early encounters with sexual predators in order not only to enlighten her readers about the growing epidemic of sexual abuse, but also to empower other sexual abuse survivors with the message that to be emotionally healed, they must first learn to forgive.
Author Molina candidly reveals how she had to bury her early emotional pain deep inside herself and how she tried as she grew up to “medicate” those feelings with both drugs and lovers. Frank and heartfelt, her memoir reveals the deep pain that ultimately led her to promiscuity, two abortions and depression.
Using her own story to exemplify the lives that have been lost to sexual abuse, the author tells of her inability to make the continuing ache in the pit of her stomach go away. Only when she found the tools necessary to say goodbye to her troubled past could she release the evil spirits that had dwelled inside her and allow forgiveness to take flight. Only then was she able to move from victim to survivor.
To help stop that cycle of abuse which passes from one generation to the next, Molina also explores the frustrating dynamics within our culture that make the acknowledgement and cessation of sexual abuse by loved ones so difficult.
Written for Christians and non-Christians alike, The Nightmare before Jesus shows that there is a medicine available to anyone which can help them deal with a troubled past. It is the simple, yet potent message of the Bible. It is the example of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
It is the act of forgiveness.

I always appreciate the strength and courage it takes for someone who has endured such abuse and trauma, like you, to write about it so that others may find courage in the message of the cross. I grew up in St. louis, spent eight years of my life in reform school and prison before I was 26. The Lord has brought me from all of that and I have been a Baptist Pastor and youth counselor for 38 years now. It took me 30 years as a pastor before I had enough courage to write my story in a book called “Pulling No Punches”. May the Lord Jesus bless you for your courage sister!
