JUNCTION CITY, Ore. – Award-winning Oregon author Danuta Pfeiffer just released the audiobook to her memoir “Chiseled.”

She was a former television evangelist who worked as the co-host for the show The 700 Club. Her book details many of the struggles she faced being a woman in the male-dominated world of Christian evangelism.

With the release of the audiobook, she said her story comes to life.

“I think it adds a lot of the personal human touch to the story when you hear the author reading her own words," Pfeiffer said.

She said narrating her own story was different than writing it. For her, she said the experience was highly personal.

In that highly personal experience, Pfeiffer said she details many of the struggles she faced based on perceptions men had that often made her feel vulnerable and powerless. She said also sometimes felt that because she was a woman, she couldn’t take hold of her own life.

She said she has grown over the years and gained confidence, but said with many women still facing these challenges, it is her way of contributing to the #MeToo conversation. 

"I’ve found women who come up to me about the book,” Pfeiffer said. “Sometimes they will just take my hand and they will start crying and they will just nod and say it happened to me too. It really touches me to know that I've touched them.”

She said when young women read the book, she hopes they will realize they have the opportunity and ability to make the most out of life’s experiences.

"So be sure that when you step out into that big world that you experience every moment of it, don't miss a thing," Pfeiffer said.
