Finally, a Place to Air Family Secrets Anonymously
Launched to Help Set People Free
A new website from Mary DeMuth!
Award-winning author Mary DeMuth is passionate about helping people experience genuine freedom from their family secrets. She’s launched a new Web site that allows people to post their secrets anonymously.
As one who’s wrestled with her own family secrets, DeMuth offers a message of hope and freedom on her new Web site. She knows the importance of sharing painful secrets. DeMuth dared to share her own family secrets in her nonfiction books, paving the way for healing and freedom.
DeMuth says, “So many of us live with secrets that haunt us, keep us awake at night, or noodle their way into our lives. Some secrets are funny (think: embarrassing moments). Some are tragic. But many hold us captive. In my latest novel “Daisy Chain,” many characters harbor secrets, but only a few are brave enough to bring them to the light of day and find freedom. It’s my hope that this site will become a community for many, and that thousands of folks will experience freedom when they’ve shared their family secret.”
To start the healing process, people can visit http://blog.myfamilysecrets.org to post their own family secrets. All secrets will be kept anonymous and will be posted with discretion.
A child of a broken and unsafe home, Mary learned early on how to pray to an unseen God for protection. Like the characters in her fiction books, she encountered mentors and friends who helped guide her through many trials and scrapes. And through all that, she told stories. To herself. To imaginary friends. To her diary. Stories of sadness, redemption, and hope. Today she pens literary Southern suspense. Her desire is that readers would experience surprising redemption amid the gritty realities of life. Through page-turning stories, Mary helps readers see her characters’ trials turn into unexpected triumph.
Mary’s debut novel, “Watching the Tree Limbs,” was a Christy Award finalist. Both it and its sequel, “Wishing on Dandelions,” were finalists for the American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year. Mary’s nonfiction books include “Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God”; “Building the Christian Family You Never Had”; and “Authentic Parenting in a Postmodern Culture.”
