One of them is Serena Dyksen, a woman who was raped by a family member at the age of 13 and got pregnant. At the urging of her family, she aborted her baby. But as she testifies, after many years of intense suffering, she found ways to transform her pain into hope. Dyksen wrote a book entitled She Found His Grace.
