The Christian author’s father was a World War II soldier.
Sexual Abuse And Being “Born Again”
Joyce’s father went for his military services the day she was born. And, upon his return, three years later, his sexual abuse upon young Joyce started.
His abuse began as molestation and got progressively worse as she grew up to be an adolescent. She said during her 1990 audiotape series Trophies of God’s Grace that her father saw nothing wrong with what he did to her.
When she was around nine years old, Joyce told her mother what her father was doing to her. However, when her mother confronted her father, he lied and denied everything. And she believed him.
