Local resident Michelle Taylor grew up being mentally and physically abused. The scars left by the abuse caused Taylor with feelings of no self worth or value. However, Taylor did not allow these feelings to take charge of her life. Instead, Taylor shares how her story of how her faith in Jesus Christ and support from her children got her through the adversity that plagued her life. Taylor shares her story in her new book called Lies in the Womb.
Taylor said after living a life of being abused by her mother, she left home at the age of 15.
“I had to do things that I am totally ashamed of just to survive,” Taylor said. “I was a very rebellious child only to seek love and attention from her (Taylor’s mother), that I never got.”
Taylor said she is a product of five failed marriages. She said all five of her marriages resulted in abuse.
Taylor said she decided to write the book after coming to know the Lord in 2011.
“I wrote this book after I got saved which was last October 2011, and God told me to do so because there are so many people out here in this world that is feeling the same way I felt and are still being abused because after being abused for so long you become accustomed to it and think that is the only way life is suppose to be,” Taylor said. “I wrote this book to help others so they will know they do have self value and self worth and God loves them with all his heart as he does me.”
Taylor credits her church home and her husband for helping her understand the meaning of true love.
“I have a wonderful Church family and a wonderful husband that took many months for me to know the real meaning of love and actually how a relationship is supposed to be. God has really blessed me and for that I am so thankful. Without God I would of have been dead many years ago.”
