Hello! I'm Ashley.

I'm passionate about loving Jesus and partnering with my husband in bring the flavor of His kingdom to the world. I seek to do this through promoting truth-seeking expeditions, advocating gender equality, educating the Church on abuse, and aiding the rescue of men, women and children from spiritual, emotional and physical poverty.

Podcast: Interview With Mary DeMuth

Podcast: Interview With Mary DeMuth

Welcome back to Christian Feminism Weekly with Ashley and Charlie!

**Trigger Warning**

Today, we are welcoming author, blogger, speaker, and abuse victim advocate, Mary DeMuth to the show! Listen as we talk about her story of childhood sexual abuse and her journey to healing. We also ask about intimacy after abuse and hear Mary's take on surrounding yourself with other strong women.

"People who get married who have not been sexually abused, but they grew up in a Christian subculture, they're starting at 0 and suddenly they have to be at a 10. They have to be really excited about sex. But if you're starting at -28 [as a sexual abuse survivor], where you can't even see it as beautiful and all you can think of is violation, then it's very, very hard.”
