John Mark Clubb

"Riveting, compelling, made me laugh out loud and cry. It's not just about abuse but covers the multitude of what it means to be human. So much of what you wrote, I can relate to."  - commentary about boys cry too

Reports of sexual abuse and assault on boys and girls by church leaders, family members and trusted adults are every day headlines. These stories only give you facts and concrete information. For the first time, John Mark Clubb tells the rest of the story with unvarnished honesty about the effects of that abuse on all aspects of the victim’s life. This story is a true account of a little boy growing up in Louisville Kentucky who endured years of sexual abuse by his father, a former Baptist minister. His mother, paralyzed by her own anguish and fear could not protect him from his father’s brutality. As a man, John tried to find refuge in the regimentation of a military career, and in multiple marriages. Even though he achieved success in many areas of his life, his efforts to deal with the trauma and shame of his experiences led him to self destructive behaviors and to seek sexual relationships with men and women alike. In acting out his grief and confusion, John left behind a trail of broken people and dreams. His life continued its downward spiral until he reached the ultimate bottom. From this point he finally began the journey towards forgiveness of his abusers but most of all redemption and forgiveness for himself.

This memoir is a groundbreaking account, from a man’s perspective, of the real effects of sexual abuse, both professional and personal. John speaks out about the details of his abuse and the family culture that enabled generations to victimize its children. His searing openness is told with humor, transparency and dignity and throws a spotlight on the darkly kept secrets of childhood sexual abuse. His story will serve as an inspiration to anyone who longs to claim their rightful voice and embrace their own healing journeys.
