What happens when a Roman Catholic woman marries into Islam? Does the forbidden love story of a non-muslim woman and a muslim man ever end well? Last Sunday, we interviewed Lina Aziz on Rebel Radio….Here is what Lina Aziz, author of Frozen Tears, had to say about it after she lived it:
I do not consider myself as the author of Frozen Tears. I believe that the Holy Spirit gave me the patience and the dedication to write and finish a 364 page book.
I wrote Frozen Tears using a pen name because my life is still in danger. I was hoping that women who are in an abusive relationship are encouraged to leave and become survivors. I pray for everyone who reads my story, that God may touch their hearts and encourage them to work towards ending Violence Against Women.
I want my life to count for God – 100%. I have a passion for teaching and counseling young women to set their course for God early and to make their decisions around marriage and family life accordingly. I have seen the devastating impact of such misguided decisions in my own life, and I want to keep as many young women as possible from making the same mistakes that I made.
Frozen Tears tells you my life story, a life of abuse and violence that followed me from the Middle East to Canada. My children and I were victims of relentless verbal and emotional abuse as well as physical and sexual violence, but not anymore. I was threatened with death but chose to risk my life to protect my children. Despite the horrific torture and abuse I faced for so many years – even in Canada – God was watching over me. Through a remarkable set of events, once I had gained the courage to seek help, God delivered me from domestic slavery to salvation in God.
