From the back cover: A path of hope and healing for survivors of childhood sexual abuse
A woman who was sexually abused as a child is confronted with many internal questions: Am I worthless? Will I get past the pain? Do I matter to God? These and similar questions can carve a deep hole in an already wounded soul. Too often, the lies of worthlessness are believed, the pain becomes too much to handle, and survivors find themselves making choices that lead to more heartbreak. With over 42 million survivors (both male and female) in the United States alone, the need for a clear path to healing is great.
Crystal Sutherland—herself a survivor of CSA—knows that while the recovery process is complex, healing is possible with God’s help. For women who want to progress from simply coping to living abundantly, Journey to Heal guides readers through seven essential steps to recovery found in Scripture. Candid and open about her personal journey of healing, Crystal comes alongside her reader as a friend who understands. Infused with biblical truths, stories of hope from other survivors, and practical wisdom, this book leads women to discover the life of wholeness God has for them.
Crystal Sutherland doesn’t make judgements, Ms. Sutherland wants to come alongside and allow for God to heal. Ms. Sutherland has written ten chapters detailing the seven essential steps of Recovery. Ms. Sutherland was a victim so she knows recovery is a process that can be accomplished, she also provides stories from other women who have also gone through the healing process. Ms. Sutherland hopes that as you read you will find encouragement, inspiration and guidance for your journey. Know that you are not alone. You’re going to make it through this and God won’t waste anything. If you are a survivor then the fact that you have this book is by Divine Appointment and that God will use it to heal your heart. I also think it is a great gift to give to friends and family who are abuse survivors as well so that they can use it to heal. I recommend this book highly.
