Healing Sisters

In 2009, I joined forces with Stacey Lannert to start a non-profit organization called Healing Sisters. I edit the website. I believe I can help Stacey help sexual abuse survivors.

On our blog, you can read about Stacey’s life as she recovers from years of sexual abuse. You can read other people’s personal stories of victory. You can see the power in sharing and supporting other people no matter where they are in their journeys.

We believe that every child, woman and man who suffers from sexual abuse shares a common bond, one of betrayal and suffering. By creating this community, we can survive–even thrive.

Is it too lofty of a goal to think we can change the course of sexual abuse in America? Can we do something to reduce its numbers? We hope so.

We believe if we communicate, we create. And we hope to create something amazing with Healing Sisters.

    I saw your story on a crime show. I just want you to know I pray for you and understand all too well what that stuff does to you. I am not sure if your out of prison or not, I hope so because you did not commit a crime. You deserve a ticker tape parade. Stay strong. Thank you for giving me strength to send this to you……..
    Sincere Regard

  4. Dear Stacey & Kristen, I am writing to congratulate you both on the admirable work that you have done in championing the cause of the abused – physically, emotionally, psychologically and sexually. I have just concluded your book, Stacey, – I Shot Daddy – and I truly admire your candour and courage in relating what has been a horrendous and heart-breaking story of betrayal and cruelty. As a Catholic priest, I am particularly impressed with your magnanimity in forgiving your father and your firm resolve to work for the liberation of the countless who are helpless, defenceless and voiceless. “Evil thrives when the good do nothing,” so said Martin Luther King Jr. I am fully confident that you will, true to your word and the reassuring trust of Governor Blunt, make a vital difference in the lives of victims of abuse throughout the world. May God bless you both, Stacey and Kristen, and bring to fruition the good work that he has initiated in and through you. You have the assure of my prayers, good wishes and blessings always.
