Barbi is a loving mother to five kids and is happily married to her husband of twenty years. When Barbi was six-years-old, she was exposed to pornography by an uncle. She didn’t understand what it was, but she knew how it made her feel and she quickly understood what it would lead to, which was him sexually abusing her. Barbi didn’t fully recognize the connection that pornography played in the sexual abuse during her childhood until a guest speaker talked to her class when she was in high school. After that, she disclosed her abuse to a trusted teacher, who then informed Barbi’s parents about the abuse. Fortunately, Barbi’s parents believed her and were able to go to law enforcement and her abuser was later convicted in court. Learn how pornography played a role in Barbi’s childhood abuse and what she’s doing now to invest in her healing and make her home a safe place for others.
