Recovering from Child Abuse: Healing and Hope for Victims (CCEF Minibook 5 Pack)
The damage you suffered may have been done in one terrible moment or over time. But the healing and the restoration will unfold at your pace, at a human pace. It unfolds as part of your story, and it unfolds over time.As a vulnerable child, instead of being protected, helped, and comforted, you were physically, emotionally, and/or sexually abused. Learn from David Powlison, an experienced counselor of child abuse victims, how to express your experience to God by composing your own personal liturgy. Pouring out your heart to God will begin the healing process and lead to small steps of faith and restoration.
