Sexual Abuse, Penn State, and Actual Hope

Heath Evans is THE guy to talk to about the Penn State saga.  Yes, he just wrapped up a 10-year NFL career, and is now an analyst for NFL Network.  He played at a legendary football school - Auburn - and has played on Super Bowl teams, the Patriots and Saints.

But that's not the story.

Here's the story: He wants to bring hope for the victims of sexual abuse.  His foundation - click here - is for that, specifically, to bring Jesus-focused counseling and healing to those who've undergone a nightmare. 

In this podcast, Heath very frankly responds to Bob Costas' interview with Jerry Sandusky, comments on what sexual abuse can do to a life, and talks about forgiveness, and why he was angry watching the Penn State game on Saturday.

Thanks for broaching the hard, ugly, "not safe" topics. If I had the energy to be enraged about the whole mess, I would be, but it just makes me incredibly sad... for the victims and for the system that allows corruption to fester for the sake of the game and the almighty dollar.

Thank you so much, Brant, for bringing this to light and advertising an organization that is offering hope in Jesus Christ. I'm a PA resident living in the State College area and the news is saturated with this story. I've been feeling so heavy about the whole thing and feeling like I need to do something but didn't know what. I'm going to share this organization with everyone I know and encourage them to turn that feeling of wanting to do something to donating financially to the Heath Evans Foundation. Thanks again.

I was so pleased to see this.  Our Christian book, David's Sword, is listed at Heath Evans website as a resource for children who disclose abuse.  (We also have a second book out, David's Shield for siblings of survivors.)  Just last night at a Bible study, I raised the PA children in prayer, and then this AM I find this at the website.  I'm delighted.  Children are precious, and this subject is still not comfortably addressed.  We (and others) are out to change that.  Thank you for posting this, and I do encourage readers to visit our website www.davidssword.com either for the books (the 2nd book isn't listed there yet, but drop an email to david@davidssword.com), or to listen to Christian radio interviews under Links, or to email for encouragement.  We are committed to displaying the love of the Lord in the darkest of all situations.  Warmest regards to all readers, Marybeth Elliott
