It is difficult to ignore the similarities between April Giauque’s description of an abuser’s behavior and Satan’s efforts to wear us down: isolation, manipulation, control, despair. Regardless of whether you feel held captive in an abusive situation like April or trapped by sin or discouragement, April’s story reminds us that there is always hope through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
"It is the worth of who your soul is, what your light is, your worth equals your light. And we were all born with the light of Christ within us. Whether you are a member of the Church or not, all have this light and that is the worth."
