Publisher's Description

At some point in every woman's life, a feeling of abandonment causes deep-rooted pain and insecurity. Maybe you've experienced a father leaving your family, or a husband who walked out on you. No matter the extremity, God cares for you and wants you to feel completely satisfied as his precious child. It's okay to have heartache over the people in this world who have misused your trust; this fallen world has its fair share of bruises to the heart. But God has a comfort like nothing else on earth, and this booklet will guide you through the steps to feel complete peace once again.



Michelle Moore tells her story of having been abandoned by her mother when she was young. Her mother changed her identity and disappeared for nearly 18 years. To make things worse, her parents had divorced, and her father had remarried and didn't want her to live with him. Just how awful am I? she asked, That not even my own parents want me? Michelle's life was marked by sadness, fear, and pain. But God had a bigger plan for her W22; and for all those who suffer rejection and hurt.



Abandonment to Forgiveness includes a Bible study by Paige Henderson that highlights God's loving promises to all who suffer from fear and insecurity. She reminds us of the story of Joseph, who suffered abandonment and betrayal, and went on to forgive and find strength. In the last section, licensed counselor Sharon Kay Ball, walks you the steps of grief and rebuilding your life through practical advice and biblical counsel.



Abandonment to Forgiveness will bring you hope and wholeness. It will speak to your heart and will strengthen your faith. It includes questions and Scripture passages W22; along with space to journal.



Look for all 12 of the Freedom Series mini-books W22; These books are for women who need God's restoration and wholeness after the hurt and destruction of divorce, rape, paralyzing fear, abandonment, abuse, illicit affairs, and other tragedies.

...About the Freedom Series...


The Freedom Series deals with many issues that I have come across during the decades I have counseled people at my church. Each book is great for its designed application. However, the Fear to Courage book stands out the most to me since so many are driven by fear. This book is so Bible-based, very direct, easy to understand, and also applicable. It is refreshing to have a resource that doesn't just talk about an issue, but shows how to apply biblical concepts to it. I highly recommend this series!

Life is like a priceless crystal vase which falls from a safe shelf and explodes. Shatters. Broken. In a thousand ways we feel the pain of life. Oh it hurts to the point of hiding. Despair becomes relentless. Hate begins to consume us. Disillusioned. We search for wholeness. We pray. We need someone to show us how to pick up the pieces of our life. And then one day God answers our prayers with The Freedom Series. Lunch-size substantial intelligence from authors, with real stories of their own divorce, rape, paralyzing fear, abandonment, abuse, illicit affairs, and other tragedies. Each mini-book offers rich Bible based hope from God, expert counselors and no-nonsense how to recover steps. All designed so you can be free to smile again, trust wiser, grieve effectively and live with joy.

As a woman's ministry leader, I've seen the devastation of divorce crush a family. The loss of hopes and dreams, plus the fear and anxiety about the future, often cause women to go into a downward spiral. Without any help, many times the numbness and fear can cause them to make poor choices. The Freedom Series gives me tools to help them. The books are on the topics I face regularly: divorce, abuse, fear and anxiety, and recovering from affairs. I strongly recommend this series.

Each woman left that retreat with a renewed vision and personal plan for her life. We will never be the same.

    Abandonment to Forgiveness: Life After Rejection
    August 27, 2013
    April McCallum
    This review was written for Abandonment to Forgiveness.
    ABANDONMENT TO FORGIVENESS is a 96-page minibook that is part of the Freedom Series created by Michelle Borquez. The authors (Michelle Moore, Paige Henderson, Sharon Kay Ball) share a true story of child abandonment and life-changing principles that turn hopelessness to hope, bitterness to forgiveness, and the impossible into the possible.

    Most women have experienced some degree of rejection or abandonment at some point in their lives. Actions by another person that leave them devastated and feeling alone, hurt, rejected, sad, angry, bitter, or unloved. This booklet is about believing the truth about yourself, others, and God, even in the place of abandonment. It is about finding freedom through forgiveness. It is about letting go of the past and what you cannot control, and embracing the future with what you can control: your own choices.

    When Michelle Moore was fourteen, the mother she loved very much, that she called her "best friend," walked out of her life with no warning and no explanation. She left without a trace, changed her identity and left no forwarding address. As if that wasn't crushing enough, she experienced further abandonment by people she should have been able to trust. Michelle shares her personal journey from abandonment and rejection to ultimately finding her freedom through the unconditional love of God, and learning to forgive.

    Michelle's questions echo what every other abandoned child (or person) wants to know:

    -Why did this happen to me?

    -Why did the other person get to move on?

    -What am I supposed to do with all of this hurt?

    The damage of that rejection cut deep and took a great toll. The people around her couldn't understand or relate to the deep pain she carried. When there were no answers, no reasons, no empathy--nothing--the concept of forgiveness didn't seem to make sense. Michelle talks about not being able to get past her past and how she withheld forgiveness because it gave her a sense of control. But later in life when she began to look closer at her abandonment issues, she came to understand that it was a false sense of control. She could not change or erase the past. She questioned: What was it that she really wanted out of life? How did she want the relationships in her life to be that were present, and real?

    In the middle section of this booklet, there's a mini Bible study by Paige Henderson (national/international speaker) that takes readers through a list of myths and truths about forgiveness. One of the biggest myths is a little like the chicken and egg question about what comes first: forgiveness or healing? Truth: We can't heal until we forgive. "Forgiving is truly an issue of counting the cost and deciding... that either you can stay bitter and deal with the totality of issues that come with that choice, or you can heal... and live!"

    In the last section, "Steps to Freedom," Sharon Kay Ball (a professional licensed counselor) helps define what true forgiveness is and what it is not. She says, "When children are abandoned, they learn very quickly not to trust. They learn how to put walls up to protect themselves so they can survive." Abandonment leaves us with missing pieces, like a puzzle. When we don't understand the "whys" that are a part of our puzzle, we tend to try and fill those empty spaces with misfit pieces (people, things, wrong beliefs) that will never fill them.

    She concludes by walking readers through the journey to healing by way of reflection and insight, journaling, the importance of telling their story, appropriately grieving the missing pieces, and through brief but meaningful writing assignments that will help them in their healing process.

    This book is about dealing with past hurts in a healthy way so you can move forward in a healthy way. It is about going from abandonment to forgiveness, and moving from victim to survivor.
