I felt like I was being shredded... one painful, hateful word at a time. Like millions of other women, CNN's HLN and truTV's In Session anchor Christi Paul blamed herself for the emotional abuse heaped on her by her first husband, whose violent, profanity-laced tirades left her feeling as though she had no value, no self-worth, and nowhere to turn for help. Then one day, when Christi was taking refuge in a church parking lot, the verse Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding popped into her head. In that moment she realized she did have someplace to turn after all. Holding fast to her faith, Christi began the arduous process of rebuilding her self-image and regaining control of her life. Now happily remarried and the mother of three girls, Christi feels called to share her story in the hope that other victims of abuse will find the courage to seek the help they desperately need and deserve.

Spoken with both candor and poignancy, Love Isn't Supposed to Hurt chronicles Christi's personal experience with emotional abuse and shows how - with God's help, some unconventional therapy, and the support of family and friends - she was able to break the cycle of abuse, regain her sense of self-worth, and discover what true love is all about.

    " This was a rather wrenching story of Christi Paul and her abusive first relationship. It really does help to open your eyes to why a woman would stay in a relationship like that. It's very interesting at the end of the book where she works on healing herself and looking back at what went wrong. "

    " Wow! I could really relate to this book and what she went through. Verbal/emotional abuse is a serious, painful issue in so many relationships and it's often ignored. I suffered under it for over 15 yrs before a friend finally helped see that I was crumbling emotionally and falling into depression. I did skim over several pages where the author was describing all of her feelings and realizations only because I felt they were quite verbose and I get lost in all the deep thoughts. "

    " It's not that I don't admire Christi or think that it was horrible that she went through what she did, I just had a hard time relating. Not that she doesn't relate to every single person, I just couldn't get into it. "
