On The Empowerment Show I like to keep the stories positive and helpful. But life is not always positive. Many of us have suffered amazing amounts of pain, suffering and abuse. That is unfortunately Stacey Giovanni’s story. Stacey is the survivor of childhood abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence. At a tender age of 15 Stacey left an alcoholic home. She then lived on the streets and battled to stay alive trying to make her way in the world. However her story is not one of heartbreak, but hope. The book No Time for Tears: A Survivor’s Tool Kit for Healing was written by Stacey in the hopes of helping others overcome abuse. The book is a tribute to the vast amount of women that are still struggling with abuse on a daily basis. In her journey of life’s struggles and healing she has shared how she not only overcame the trauma of abuse but managed to survive and thrive. Her mission now is to let others know that there is a way out and a light at the end of the tunnel. Now free of trauma she makes it her life’s work to inspire, educate and empower. Learn how Stacey Giovanni has turned a painful life into one of hope and inspiration. Listen to the full episode.
