Childhood abuse leaves long, festering wounds. For men, this can also shatter their masculinity. Abused men need a voice in this #Metoo moment of history, too. Cecil Murphy knows about the effects of childhood abuse – but he also knows there is way out. With the transparency and grace of a loving friend, he will us move through pain to discover a new place of strength, self-confidence and true spiritual freedom!
