Poema 010 : Laura Parrott Perry on Surviving Sexual Abuse & Valuing Our Stories
Today I’m joined by my dear friend Laura Parrott Perry. Laura is an author and a speaker, and co-founder of Say It, Survior, a non-profit dedicated to helping survivors of sexual abuse.
With great courage and honesty, Laura shares her own story of abuse, and it’s impact on her and her family, and the story of how a phone call with her cousin and a blog post sharing her story, led to her co-founding a non-profit which now provides a safe space for survivors of sexual abuse to get the support and healing they need.
Laura also talks about the importance of valuing our own story, and the power of owning our story and being honest about our journey. Laura argues passionately that all our stories have value, and all deserve respect, and to be received with love and grace – and when that happens, we can begin our journey to healing and transformation.
Laura speak with great wisdom, insight and courage, and her story is well worth a listen.
