A s you read this book you’ll witness that an invisible war is being waged between seductive evil and unfathomable good. This is truly a compelling story of redemption that takes place over a prolonged period of time. Real truth stands on its own. It’s not open for debate, nor can it be negotiated as some may think. Redemption is truth displayed to its fullest extent.
This story is one woman’s turbulent struggle with life. Honestly, it’s all our story. Where does the courage to face this crisis come from? How can compassion come from this kind of devastation?
It’s not something we can wave a magic wand at and it just happens. We are all caught up in our own pain to get past our own crisis. Something or someone needs to act on our behalf in order for real compassion to be expressed and demonstrated. Not just for the short term or the immediate challenge at hand.
How does a child handle the heartbreak of shattered innocence as it jolts her to the core like a bolt of lightning? From early childhood a young girl willingly envelops a deep secret protecting her loved ones. The fear of rejection, abandonment and exposure of the truth nips at her heels like a beast out of control.
As you become immersed in Naomi’s life from childhood to adulthood the venomous poison of self-doubt raises its ugly head. To make matters worse, an undiagnosed learning disability and deceptive relationships mount a barrage of deep disappointments. Now one secret turns to many in a constant effort to avoid exposure. A log jam of emotions and fear begin to pile up. Ways of avoiding exposure are consuming her mental energy.
In the midst of all this, Naomi becomes acutely aware that a merciless enemy is tracking her every move. Not seen, but the carnage left behind is becoming evident. Alone in all of this, she is fast losing all hope. Does anyone else know what’s going on? Who can she trust?
Author, Sally Betters dares to enter into these secret places of darkness and deception. She unveils cultural lies and societal pressures that twist our thinking. Sally shows through her vulnerability in writing and an intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, life can turn from crisis to compassion.

Grief is cumulative and cumulatively negative. Childhood abuse can have a lifelong negative impact on your life. From Crisis to Compassion is a beautiful example of how hope and recovery from grief and abuse are possible.
I have never heard a story of someone healing or getting over something by living in silence and isolation with past abuse. I am grateful for this example of transparency, honesty, and bravery in telling a story out loud. This book can serve as a guide for anyone who wants to come out spiritually and relationally stronger after sexual abuse or abortion. Thank you Sally, for writing the truth!
The term “broken heart” is so commonly used in our society that it often sounds romantic; and in actuality it’s anything but! Broken hearts demand our full attention, whether the cause is relationships, debilitating depression, or dreams dying and crumbling in our hands, we are all in need of healing from the heart traumas of simply being human.
Sally is passionate not only for her own healing but making it accessible for others as well. Within the narrative on these pages you’ll find your story… follow the path and you’ll find your healing.
For anyone who has felt alone, or has lost hope of their lives ever improving, this book is a must. The traumas faced by Naomi changed how she felt about herself, and about her ability to influence the world around her. It is in moving past negative self-talk and destructive behavior that Naomi is enabled to forgive herself, allowing her to connect more genuinely with those around her. This is a book about hope, and how to become the best version of your true self.
Sally Betters tells a story so heartbreakingly beautiful and so painful to comprehend, one wants to look away and keep reading all at the same time. From Crisis to Compassion draws one in, and is brimming with Scriptural truth and the deep, unstoppable, Redemptive love of Christ, bringing healing to those who have suffered in secret and silence. In a unique style and voice, Sally writes with a grit and compassion that could only come from a personal encounter with a passionate Savior who will stop at nothing to rescue His beloved.
