Book Summary 
​​ "Treasures in the Trash” is the true story of the author who struggled with church leadership’s destructively cruel administration; their actions activated psychological traumatic flashbacks to the author’s childhood.

Her experience resulted in unearthing a correlation between abusive parents and detrimental people within the Church.

It was in rediscovering the forgotten memories of her early life, where she began to observe the unhealthy toxic similarities between her former church and childhood.​​

Growing up with alcoholic parents, a detached and distant father, an unstable mentally ill mother, the author overcame a childhood of neglect and harm resulting in C-PTSD, only to re-experience a similarity within her church family. 

Church hurts are equally devastating to people as childhood wounds are.

She was seeking Biblical-based resolutions, to the hardships which developed within her church; however instead of restoration, she was repeatedly told to forget the recurrent unkindness.

Similar to her father’s guidance, she was never to speak of the wounds inflicted by self-centered people.    

Without a solid demonstration in Forgiveness and Grace, healing was elusive, and she began to question:
  • -Do I have to forgive all the people who hurt me, but never acknowledged their actions?

  • -How do I forgive those that profess the same Christian faith, however seemingly don't practice it?

  • -What does being a Christ Follower to unkind, un-trustworthy, critical people resemble? 

Join the author as she discovers: lies, secrets, scandals, and truth!

How she became a survivor and is no longer a victim of abuse. Why she believes revisiting our childhood environments can remove the unwanted trash mistreatment frequently leaves behind undermining our self-concept.

We can gain freedom and victory, with liberating Godly treasure! Read Kristy’s story of redemption, as she shares her triumphant journey of healing.

“This book was written in hopes that it might prove to be a lifeline for others who have battled circumstances beyond their control. Throughout her life even when things seemed to swirl out of control, the author continued to struggle forward with God at her side. The fact that her faith has proven to be a salvation from the day she became a Christian. The author has been able to hold her head up high no matter the situation.”

-S. Henry, Published Author

"“Treasures” is a powerful and liberating description of repurposing terrible hurts into victorious living. This author shines the light of truth into the dark corners of church dysfunction with compassion, love, forgiveness, and hope. As a Medical Laboratory Scientist with six years of experience in an in-patient mental health facility, I was especially captivated by her insight into the social dynamics and biases the mentally ill and those who love them must deal with daily. This book tackles some really tough issues that end-time churches are up against with laser-like clarity and not just a little humor. I recommend it for all believers who seek truth, even when painful, for the purpose of healing and advancing God’s Kingdom.”Kristy survived her childhood upbringing or lack thereof with an alcoholic father and mother with mental health issues, neglect was the norm. She relates the dysfunctional family life to that of the dysfunctional church. Remembering the things she forgot has brought strength and courage and a sense of self awareness that the reader will see unfold as the pages turn. Many things are done in the name of Christ that are not Christ like. Gods Grace comes thru as you will discover in this must read book.​
