Childhood sexual abuse brought a ripple effect to Cheryl Tuggle’s marriage. Today, Cheryl and her husband, Brad, talk about the emotional baggage each spouse brings to a marriage, and how God can bring healing.
In September 2000, Brad and Cheryl Tuggle started a ministry to support sexual abuse survivors. In this book, Cheryl tells of her own childhood abuse to help couples deal with their past in a context of acceptance and forgiveness. Together, Brad and Cheryl seek to begin a dialogue of healing in the church to address this sensitive but pervasive subject. The Tuggles and their two daughters, Catherine and Victoria, live in San Antonio, where Brad is a minister at Oak Hills Church.
