Behind the Mask is a true story of sin and redemption, of faith and forgiveness. With courage and candor, author Amy Lynne shares her inspirational story. At age eighteen she chose to have an abortion. This decision caused her to withdraw from family and friends and led her to believe she was incapable of being loved, that no one could ever love someone who had killed her own child.
Years passed, but Amy was unable to openly share her past with others. She had subconsciously donned a mask to hide behind. She felt as though the mask hid her shame, guilt, bitterness, anger and fear, but all it really did was hide her from reality.
After years of struggle, the compassion of a fellow Christian helped her to finally confess her past; once she did, she was able to realize there was no condemnation in Jesus Christ. Her fellow Christians simply loved her. Friends pointed her in the direction of healing through an abortion recovery ministry, where she learned to face the past and removed her mask once and for all.
By lifting her mask and sharing in the forgiveness of Christ, Amy was able to embrace a fulfilling and optimistic future. Behind the Mask was written for every person who chooses to conceal his or her real identity. Let God, through Amy's words, give you the strength and courage to remove your mask.
