"Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering." -Mark 5:34
After an experience of abuse, everyone needs someone to help them along the healing journey and I know no better healer than God.
But sometimes you don't know how to go about connecting to God--or even yourself--in order to start the journey of recovery after abuse. How do you begin healing? How do you keep the healing going? What happens when you think you've healed and then life trips you up again?
Consider this website your online resource manual for healing with faith. You can drop by for a spiritual pick-me-up with the monthly prayer reflection on the homepage or find a spiritual director or book on the resource page. This is here for you.
