In the book “Resilience” Joan Green shares her life as a little girl growing up in a loving family. However, Joan felt she couldn’t tell anyone when sexual abuse happened. Joan learnt survival instincts and the narrative takes her on a journey to get to where she had a voice that was heard.
The comment “I didn’t know what to do” after Joan’s husband died by suicide was the catalyst for her writing a thesis on ‘Bridging the Gap between Families in Crisis and the Church and Community.
Encouraged by being told many times that you need to write your story Joan’s faith has been a major part of her spirituality, hope, and search for meaning.
