Reading Time: 2 minutes

Rev. Barbara Lane


Did you know that the chances of being struck by lightning are 1 in 6.2 million? For comparison, your chances of dying in a plane crash are 1 in 400,000, and if you’re in a car accident, they increase to 1 in 19,000. We rarely consider these odds in our daily lives. But here’s something truly staggering: did you know that the chances of being sexually abused or assaulted as a child are 1 in 4?

Author, speaker, and ministerial counselor Barbara Lane specializes in raising awareness about child abuse and aiding the journey to recovery for survivors. She wrote the bestselling memoir, “Broken Water: An Extraordinary True Story,” where she not only tells her own story but also includes the accounts of abuse each of her 10 sisters experienced. Barbara learned first-hand the power and necessity of support to heal from childhood trauma when she was reunited with her sisters after 43 years; they nurtured each other’s healing. She captures the importance of support in her recently released self-help workbook “What Your Inner Child Knows: Nine Steps to Rescue Your Abused Inner Child.”

With a strong background in human behavior, social sciences, family psychology, and ministerial counseling, Rev. Lane is an authority on childhood trauma and an advocate for adult survivors of child abuse. She also offers valuable insights and effective guidance on how to provide support in these areas.
