Sophie was a good Christian teenager, the dearly loved daughter of decent, hard-working parents. One night she came back from babysitting and, almost without thinking, hit her leg with a coat hanger. Then she tried whipping herself with a belt. The following day she scratched her arm repeatedly with the point of a compass. This violence against her own body filled her with a warm sense of well-being, a release of tension. So began Sophie's eight-year struggle to conceal what was happening from her parents and friends, and to find healing. Slowly, she learned to identify the triggers and to realize that Jesus does not reject the self-harmer. Today, Sophie works with teenagers and continues to gain insight into how this all-too-common problem can be tackled.

Review 1 for Crying Scarlet Tears: My Journey Through Self-Harm
Date:May 31, 2011
Sophie Scott dares to be vunerable with her personal battle through self-harm. This is a must read for anyone living in this day of resurgence and increased awareness of this battlefield. Inflicting harm upon oneself goes back to the old testament and Baal worship. Our enemy does not change his tricks but uses them on a new generation. Society struggles to overcome its own shortcomings in the area of wisdom and understanding through new titles or labels associated with natural reasoning. For true recovery and the freedom God designed us to have, we must address these issues in three part understanding - spirit, mind, and body! Afterall, that is His great design of our creation.
