Publisher's Description

Abuse is ugly. It is always wrong. It is never part of God's design for healthy family living. It distorts relationships and shatters dreams. It creates pain and despair. It never produces hope. You know this all too well--that's why you've picked up this book. Nancy Nason-Clark and Catherine Clark Kroeger know the pain of women who have been abused, especially the unique pain of Christian women who thought it couldn't happen to them. In this straightforward, practical book they supply the answer to the questions you face:
  • How do I know I need help?
  • How much of my story should I tell?
  • Where do I find spiritual support as a victim of abuse?
  • What help can I find in the community?
  • How do I get started on the healing journey?
  • What key steps will I need to take to get on with my life?
  • How can I understand what help my abuser needs?
  • How do I learn to trust God again?
Their advice is solid, backed up by Nason-Clark's professional expertise as a sociologist and Kroeger's as a biblical scholar. Together they supply both here-and-now, step-by-step advice you need to start the healing journey and biblical insights to nourish your soul and sustain you on the path to wholeness.

    In today's world there are too many battered women/men. There are different types of abuse women/men go through such as emotional, sexual, physical, verbal, and financial abuse. Emotional abuse is when the abuser wants to make their partner into someone they think they should be. The person being emotionally abused will often believe that they do not have very good decision making skills. Sexual abusers often accuse their partner of being unfaithful to them, when more than likely it is the abuser who is unfaithful. The person being abused verbally will feel like it is their fault and that they deserve it. Financial abuse happens when the abuser won't let their partner work and if they do let them work they take their paycheck when the abused gets paid. Battered/abused women and/or men need to know that they do not deserve any type of abuse no matter who or what it may pertain too. No one deserves to be treated like this. Here is a National Domestic Hotline for anyone to call 1-800-799-SAFE. Please try and get the help you need. Abuse needs to stop.
