Publisher's Description

Abuse comes in many forms, so what do you do when you realize you're being abused? There is help for abuse. Whether you're caught in domestic violence, or you're experiencing verbal abuse, this minibook will meet you in the trenches of hopelessness and give you the tools to deal with abuse. You don't have to endure an abusive relationship alone; you can be freed from abuse. Jo Anne Aleman writes about her past of abuse, and will open the door to your heart, letting God's truth set you free. Psychological abuse, emotional abuse, and physical abuse all share one common truth: they are not okay, and you do not have to withstand it any longer. You or someone you know can be freed from abuse.



Jo Ann Aleman tells her true story about the abusive relationships she endured as an adult, and how she watched the cycle of abuse between her father and her mother as a child. Though she knew that what she witnessed was not normal, her false attempts to find prince charming lead her from one abusive marriage to another. Before she knew it, she was empty, reaching out to the only one that could truly save her, Jesus.



Abuse to Favor includes a Bible Study by Paige Henderson that helps diagnose why women often stay in abusive relationships—deception. Paige takes you through the story in John 9:1-12, a story about spit, dirt, and a miracle. Learn what Jesus can do when he heals your wounds and helps you to see clearly.



Abuse to Favor will bring you hope and wholeness. It will speak to your heart and will strengthen your faith. It includes questions and Scripture passages along with space to journal.



Look for all 12 of the Freedom Series mini-books—These books are for women who need God's restoration and wholeness after the hurt 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.

    Abuse to Favor: Finding Hope & Healing
    August 27, 2013
    April McCallum
    This review was written for Abuse to Favor.
    ABUSE TO FAVOR is a 96-page minibook that is a part of the Freedom Series created by popular author and speaker, Michelle Borquez. Each booklet in the series shares a woman's true story about her journey from brokenness to freedom.

    In Abuse to Favor, Jo Ann Aleman writes about growing up in a home filled with chaos, fear, and insecurity. Her "normal" was living in a family with an abusive alcoholic father who regularly took out his rage and violence on her mother.

    Like so many girls who have been brought up in an abusive environment, she promised herself that her future would not be like her past. She fantasized about finding someone who would love and take care of her, someone to rescue her... be her "savior".

    "Many times we think of abuse as being only physical; however, abuse takes on many forms. Sexual abuse, verbal abuse, and emotional abuse--even neglect--are all perversions of real, unconditional love."

    But the cycle of abuse didn't stay in her past. It repeated itself, only now she was all grown up. She ended up in one abusive relationship after another. The constant intimidation, physical, sexual, emotional and verbal abuse held her hostage and imprisoned by her fears.

    Longing to be loved, she hoped that the next man would bring the security she so desperately wanted, but it didn't happen. In fact, it began to spill over onto her daughter. That's when something shifted. This time, she didn't reach out to a man, but to God. Aleman says, "Although we are all somewhat conditioned by our environment, something deep inside of us reveals the truth." She knew there was more for her and she wanted, once and for all, to be free.

    Sharon Kay Ball (a professional counselor) defines healthy and unhealthy thinking and behaviors; and uses Bible study format to speak to the issues of conflict, power, authority, power struggles, and abuse that can affect any type of relationship. She also walks readers through common abuser behaviors: rage, silence, intimidation, altering the victims sense of reality, criticizing, and blame-shifting.

    "His words only confirmed my feelings. They shaped me, took root in my heart, and I believed the things he said."

    Ball breaks down the phases in the cycle of abuse and talks about making a "safe plan". Although it's crucial to get out of an abusive relationship physically, it's not enough. Victims need to purge themselves from the damaging affects of abuse that are left embedded in their minds and spirits. That means working through issues of trust, low self-image, forgiveness, anger, and learning how to move forward. Aleman writes, "I was free on the surface, yet broken and deeply wounded inside." That was, until she decided to no longer allow herself to be defined by abusive men, but by a loving God who offered hope and healing.

    This booklet packs a lot into its pages while addressing both the practical and spiritual elements to finding favor, and freedom from abuse. As with all of the minibooks in the Freedom Series, Abuse to Favor is suitable for both individual and small group settings.
