Zondervan author Mary DeMuth recently launched a new website (blog.myfamilysecrets.org) to help people post their secrets anonymously and start the healing process. DeMuth handles each posted secret with anonymity and discretion.
DeMuth, who has wrestled with her own family secrets, knows the importance of sharing sharing them. She dared to share her own family secrets in her nonfiction books, paving the way for healing and freedom.
“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,” says DeMuth. “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.”
Daisy Chain, which will be available in March, is one of three novels written by DeMuth. Her other two novels garnered honors as previous American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year finalists. She has also authored several non-fiction books.
