Abandoned, abused, forgiven, free. An elder shares her story – The testimony of Anne Morrow (Cree)

posted on , under Stories


When Anne was a little girl her mother walked out. When she was five she was sent away to residential school where she was abused. At sixteen she was married to a man she barely knew… and then met her first drunk… her newlywed husband. Then a stranger showed up one day, invited her to church, and gave her a Bible. She remembered being warned in residential school not to accept a man into her house that came with a black book. She took the Bible anyway and accepted his invitation to go to church. It was there where she heard something hard to believe, but soon would experience for herself.
