Surviving Abuse


If you or someone you love has suffered through sexual, physical, verbal, or emotional abuse, working through this guide will help you figure out how and where to get help. You’ll read stories of women who’ve survived and triumphed over various kinds of abuse—and have come forward to share their stories in order to help others break the silence on the epidemic of abuse. Most of all, you’ll receive hope from people who’ve endured the pain—and lived to tell of God’s healing comfort.

A collection of Bible-based articles and resources to use for yourself or with a group of other women.
