Sharon Hughes’ diligent account of her harrowing experience of multiple sexual abuses is difficult to ignore. The Girl in the Garage aims at an audience stung by the horrors of violence against women. At a time when victims are coming out to voice a long-delayed justice they rightfully deserve, this book does not necessarily flow in the same vein. Rather, Hughes is a survivor finding strength in faith. She finds an ally in Christ and reaffirms the truth about faith moving mountains. Along with her path to healing, she gives her take on the questionable practices of ministering to the broken where counseling is often handled like a quick solution.

Years of abuse have made the author stronger and wise. Stronger, because it takes strength to overcome such abusive ordeals, to stand up and face your fears. Wiser, because it takes even greater strength to mend a broken spirit and take heart at the thought of God as a confidante and source of hope. The Girl in the Garage is the tale of a survivor. Her familiarity with trauma from her first-account experience with sexual abuse lends authority to her disturbing past and inspiration to her thriving present. She succeeds in involving her readers by encouraging them to illuminate their paths.

About The Book

What if you’re not who you think you are?

What if you let go of the lies you’ve believed, broke up with your past, and let go of the shame that’s held you prisoner in your own life for good? Who would you be? Who could you be?

In the Girl In The Garage, Sharon Hughes shares her personal story of overcoming years of abuse that came to a head when at 16 years old, she was drugged at a Halloween party and woke up in a garage seven hours later. Her story is one of radical healing by a radical God that called her to a new identity and a new destiny. If you’ve struggled with brokenness, shame, past trauma and self-worth issues, this book will walk you through the core steps you need to get a breakthrough while experiencing God’s radical healing. No matter what you believe about God, yourself, or your future, you won’t be the same after reading this book.

After all, believing a lie is just as powerful as believing the truth!

Praise for The Girl In The Garage

"So many people struggle with pain from the past.When the body experiences pain, whether it's a cut or a bruise, the body automatically goes to work to repair itself. This isn't the case with emotional and spiritual wounds. You could have experienced emotional/spiritual trauma 20 years ago and the pain from that experience can hurt just as bad or even worse today.  Healing is possible...but it has to be intentional. Sharon has done a lot of internal work on her spirit and emotions by reflecting on her past and looking through a lens of redemption. I think your book will help others realize that healing is possible. Growth is possible. Change is possible.This story will bring hope to those who are hurting."
“In our society today, there’s a large disconnect with the way individuals seek emotional support whether that be through therapy, counseling, church, groups, etc. There is a stigma with seeking help for the burdens and emotional warfare that wage against us, and the only true remedy is the Lord setting us free. Sharon’s story is a true testament that you can learn from and see first-hand that you don’t have to live in shame.  That life can be full and rich if you live outside the garage!” - Marcie Stoddard, Chief Storyteller, Communications Consultan

“Sharon’s story is genuine, transparent, and honest. Her story reflects what others are experiencing, are afraid to tell, or are unable to tell. She gives hope that someone does understand, comfort that you are not alone, and courage that you can move past your fears and brokenness to experience healing.”
