"A Strand of Pearls"
by Theresa Westbrook
Theresa Westbrook is an author, inspirational speaker, media producer, television host, wife, mother, young grandmother, and survivor of sexual abuse as a child. Her poignant communication of both heart and soul – peels back the veil of secret lives and unanswered questions regarding the sexual abuse of children, offering hope and peace for victims and accountability and hope to change to perpetrators. A licensed nurse, her ‘calling’ into this ministry has led her into an extended dimension of healing.
Using her book, A Strand of Pearls, and her DVD, God’s Pearl, Theresa is able to share restoration discovered in Jesus Christ. Frank Minirth, MD, one of the top leading psychiatrists in the nation, has endorsed her book A Strand of Pearls. His authoring credentials include over seventy books written or co-authored. Chaplains and counselors who treat the survivors of abuse and those who treat abusers are requesting A Strand of Pearls to share with their patients. Theresa’s video, God’s Pearl, is an award winning video that has also brought comfort to many, and has been honored as an official selection before being screened in two Texas film festivals, to date.
Theresa Westbrook, survivor, minister, and so much more… has shared her story on a number of platforms and to a broad range of audiences on both television and radio. She has ministered at women’s retreats, before recovery groups, in churches, at crisis agencies, correctional institutions, and to a host of others needing to hear her remarkable story of triumph over tragedy. Along with the efforts and work of her husband, Don Westbrook, she is also the founder of Pearls of Shalom Ministries. A survivor, herself, Theresa’s life is one of renewal and victory, smiles and joy – found – beyond the abuse.
