Dazzled by Jess Echeverry and Patti Maguire Armstrong tells the story of the wounded-ness that runs rampant throughout our culture. Jess shares her suffering through a broken family, sexual assault, physical abuse, teen homelessness, abortion, same sex attraction, single motherhood, suicide attempts, and the trap of wanting to sabotage her own happiness. Her experiences also give insight into the topics of racial tension, human trafficking, and pornography. Jess explains how therapy conquered her flashbacks, the Catholic faith brought her deeper healing through obedience despite her skepticism, and how her husband, now a permanent deacon in the Church, helped carry Jess through her trials despite her threats to divorce him. Although there is healing in this story, this book is ultimately about discovering the awesome dignity of the human person. Jess’s story is unique in both the breadth of the pain she experienced and in the fullness of mercy she received after embracing faith and forgiveness through obedience. This is a feel-good drama full of victories and surprises; an exciting story of conversion and apologetics. It offers support to anyone in pain or carrying around the great weight of unforgiveness in their heart. This book also offers a roadmap for how to move beyond brokenness through living the Catholic faith.
