Inspirational

Abuse of any kind is abhorrent, damaging and incomprehensible! While education, counselling and support are essential, only love and hope can truly repair a broken heart. Xenia’s courage and journey remind us all of the beauty of grace. Her story is not only inspirational but a reminder to us all that giving up is not an option and that there is a better life ahead for those who choose to fight. Rob Molhoek MP

Incredible story of suffering, survival & hope

Thank you to Xenia for her candid story. I couldn’t put this book down. A Domestic violence story told through a Christian lens. This book gave me inspiration and hope - having been in a DV marriage for 15 years myself. Xenia and her incredible children are in the purest sense...Heroes.

A compelling and inspirational read

There is often a feeling of stigmitism surrounding domestic violence issues. This can be because of the circumstances that surround the victim, what they're living in and going through. The overwhelming emotional and physical abuse can lead them the believe in the lies the perpetrator portrays and their need to be faithful to their other half. The smoke and mirrors people are made to live within, a cage. Society can often feel like a cold and helpless place. This book offers hope to those who feel secluded by their conditions. For those that feel unwanted and unthought of or maybe its too hard to even be heard. This book brings hope through a connection between victims. The abilty to bring hope and to encourage victims to reach out to a personal or professional confidant. This book brings hope to even the darkess of situations and provides a unique perspective of overcoming your perpetrator with strength, courage, compassion and faith in your future. There is help available and people who care, who can relate and understand to guide and support you through. This book also helps others understand the shame as a victim of domestic violence, the difficult conditions of domestic violence and the unexpected, unforeseen and inhumane situations families are subjected to. This heartbreaking story portrays a loud message of strength, courage and a genuine fight for human rights. Thank you to the Author for sharing and may it be a gateway to healing and a guiding light for many in such a horrible situation. #domesticviolence #brokentobebeautiful # hope #freedom #xeniaschrembri

The Woman with the Warrior’s Resillience

Xenia’s latest book, Broken To Be Beautiful, shares the honest account of a God-filled woman whose faith is challenged through the actions of her unfaithful and abusive husband. The battle Xenia and her family suffered is only won through her constant trust in a loving
God who never forsakes her, and by man sent to her from across the globe to glue those broken fragments back together and recreate a beautiful, new family. I cried, I laughed, I got angry. Mostly, I was more in awe of my friend than I had ever been before; because for the first time, I understood her battle and the courage it took her to keep pressing in to God to become the woman I know (and love) today.

Riveting !

This book is a shocking story but some how you are drawn into this real life drama and I found it hard to put down .I couldn't help wondering how Xenia survived all those years. This is an inspiration to all who may be going through something similiar. Somehow she found the courage and strength to make the decision to leave. Knowing the author,it's hard to imagine this happened as she has been so healed and set free.This is a must read and a great resource to pass on to help others .
