Welcome to another compelling episode of Flourish-Meant. Today, we're delving deep into the heart-wrenching topic of overcoming the shame of abuse, a crucial conversation that touches many lives. Joining us are esteemed authors Eva Marie Everson and Miriam Feinberg Vamosh, who have recently collaborated on a transformative project. Their work not only explores the hauntingly vivid account of Tamar from the ancient text "Words of Gad the Seer", but also breathes new life into her story, providing a narrative filled with redemption and justice.

In today's episode, Eva and Miriam will discuss the profound impact of Tamar's ordeal, the generational nature of sexual abuse, and the process of redefining one’s identity from victim to survivor. We will explore the complex emotions surrounding family betrayals, the power of reclaiming one’s past, and the choice between becoming bitter or better.

Miriam will share insights from her meticulous research and her thoughts on the portrayal of women in biblical narratives, while Eva will speak to the emotional, physical, and spiritual journey of healing from trauma. Together, our guests will offer valuable perspectives on not only surviving but thriving after personal devastation.

Stay tuned as we rise above the ashes of trauma and discover paths to peace, empowerment, and hope.
