Eriko Valk's life seemed devoid of God's love. Born in Japan after WWII as a Japanese-American, Eriko was already deaf in one ear, with 70 percent hearing loss in the other. When her mother could no longer care for Eriko, she did the only thing she could for her daughter: surrender her child to an American military couple for adoption.
The adoption marked the beginning of life in America but the years of abuse continued. Eriko found fleeting solace in alcohol and prescription drugs, but began hearing voices in her head that she could not silence. Her addictions and torment led to failed marriages, car wrecks, and suicide attempts. She was lost. And then, miraculously, she was found.
Discover how God's presence in Eriko's life changed everything, giving her the strength to silence the voices, achieve sobriety, and develop loving, lasting relationships. With her demons replaced by the comfort of God's Word and His love, Eriko learned to laugh, love, and find peace in His Comfort of Silence. Her testimony to His grace and mercy is both inspiring and humbling.
