My name is Vennie Kocsis. I am the author of Cult Child, a novelized memoir based on my life growing up a sexually, mentally and physically abused child in Sam Fife’s Move of God cult, which still exists today.
My publications, art and more can be explored at my website.
My creativity is the therapy by which I have survived the memories of my childhood abuse. There are dark caves where the worst of my memories hide. This is my Shadowland. There are many caves, and we intend to travel them all in this lifetime.
I identify Empath Hybrid and Highly Sensory. I understand the journey through cult recovery and returning to our original, authentic mind. I am raw. I am flawed. I am vulnerable, and here without shame, to tell the true story of my own childhood. I am writing out the effects that this trauma has left on my family and my own children. I write to survive, and I write for those who cannot find the words to tell their own story.
Some of the entries you will read if you follow this journal may contain descriptive accounts of sexual, physical, mental abuse, graphic dreams, and other possibly triggering subjects. Please follow with caution. I sometimes go long periods without posting or the floodgates open. If you do decide to follow, stay on the raft, I’ll always be back.
