The project is many of the contributing authors’ first opportunity to reveal their stories to the world and continue their healing processes.
The book release on Tuesday, March 25, 2014 proved successful as by the following morning, Wednesday, March 26, Moments in HerStory was listed as #1 of Amazon’s Hot New Releases under Christian Living/Women’s Issues.

A closed Facebook group, “Moments in HerStory,” including the 46 contributing authors serves to encourage women to share the project with others who may be experiencing life’s roughest moments and need a glimmer of hope that they too can survive heartache, domestic abuse, childhood abuse, and thoughts of suicide and hopelessness.
