One week after our next guest’s college graduation she walked into her apartment to find a masked man holding a knife and waiting for her at the top of the stairs. The man assaulted her both physically and sexually. Needless to say changing her life forever. Her story is about her greatest passion: sharing the transforming power of God’s Word
. It is our honor to have with us as a guest today, author, trial lawyer, she teaches Bible study, has been instrumental in women’s ministries, and speaks frequently at events, churches, and retreats. I want to welcome Wendy Blight who will speak to us today about her book, “Hidden Joy in a Dark Corner”

My greatest passion is sharing the transforming power of God’s Word. Nothing brings me greater joy than journeying alongside women as they discover the Truth that God's Word is relevant and applicable to everyday life. I especially love to teach Bible study and write corresponding curriculum because it enables me to connect directly to the heart of women.

Just days after my college graduation, I was attacked by a masked man hiding in my apartment. While I physically survived, I lived the next decade in a prison of fear, despair, and hopelessness. God and God alone healed me. My story is now an amazing testimony of God’s strength in weakness, His hope in hopelessness, and His healing in brokenness.

My husband, Monty and I have been married twenty years. We live in Charlotte, North Carolina with our two children Lauren (15) and Bo (11). Before moving to Charlotte, we lived in Dallas, Texas where I practiced law for several years. Since moving to Charlotte, I have been actively involved in both teaching and writing curriculum for Bible studies, as well as speaking to churches and various other organizations. I currently serve with an incredible group of women on the Proverbs 31 Speaker team.

I have written a book, Hidden Joy in a Dark Corner: The Transforming Power of God's Story (release date February 1, 2009), that shares my journey of transformation. It offers a step-by-step walk through God’s Word to find physical, spiritual, and emotional healing. I have been a featured guest on Oprah Radio, The 700 Club, Family Life Today with Dr. Dennis Rainey, Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss, and Building Relationships with Dr. Gary Chapman.
