This book has been a tool for a group of woman learning that our behavior is not abnormal; we had developed ways of behaving because of the abuse we have all been through. The book has helped us become more self aware and accepting of the person God created us to be. Highly recommended!
This is a excellent source of help for me. I purchased the workbook as well. I suggest for you to do the same. I had been looking for a biblical perspective and found it in this book. PLEASE work through this book with your councilor if need be as I am doing. Or at least show your councilor the book to let him/her know that you are reading it. It will help your process!
This book helped me realize that the wounds of my childhood sexual abuse had not all been worked through like I thought. I realized also that most of us (survivors) need to work with a professional councilor, one that specializes in trauma.
This book helped validate many areas I had been struggling with for years. I recommend both the workbook and book.
I was sexually abused by my father. This book helped me through a very difficult time, when, I as an adult was sick of living with the mess inside of me. The author says that it will be a hard journey, but one worth taking. I finished the book and workbook (suggest you buy that, too) a few years back. It has made a world of difference!!!
I had to write this review to encourage others who were sexually abused to PLEASE read "The Wounded Heart"-it has clarified and confirmed much of what the Holy Spirit has been revealing to me over the years. We deserve to be happy and to walk in the freedom for which Christ Jesus has set us free.-It's content is so true, it's liberating: its a recommended powerful tool for a small group Healing ministry, and for the matured & skilled counselors/Pastors to use in Pastoral Care & Counseling of those who experienced childhood sexual abuse, and ready to overcome its harmful effect in their adult life.
