Why did I want to talk with Jewels on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast? I am your host Jason LaChance, and I spoke with Jewels because I was absolutely interested in her sobriety journey and why she wrote her book 'The Making Of A Woman'. Trigger warning, if you are in recovery for sex and love addiction this may be a conversation that challenges your sobriety.
I personally found Jewels' book, fascinating and it led to asking myself many introspective questions about trauma, boundaries, sexual expression, and contribution to the recovery community.
THE MAKING OF A WOMAN is the compelling autobiography of a dynamic female who refused to bow down to the circumstances of her birth. With a prevailing sense of self and survival, Jewels fought a hardscrabble war against the forces and people that populated her life in a way that often crushes others.
Jewels is an award-winning author, speaker, and bodybuilder and hope to inspire others to push forward no matter the challenges. After enduring an abusive childhood, Jewels decided to use her earlier trauma to enter recovery, sexually liberate herself, and enter the competitive world of bodybuilding. At age 49, Jewels placed 3rd at the NPC North American Championships in 2021. Jewels has appeared on numerous media outlets to discuss a variety of important topics from her memoir including childhood trauma, sexual abuse, alcoholism, shame, LGBTQ, and alternate lifestyles.
