Healing Well and Living Free from an Abusive Relationship
One out of every four women in the United States will experience some form of domestic violence or abuse in her lifetime. Through Dr. Ramona Probasco's own powerful personal story of coming out of an abusive relationship, along with her twenty years of experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, she takes readers through a proven, step-by-step process for moving from victim to survivor to overcomer. With genuine empathy, she encourages the reader to call it what it is, understand the mindset of the abuser, break the cycle of violence, recognize what forgiveness is and is not, find a healthy support system, and more. Each chapter ends with a simple, heartfelt prayer, Scriptural promises readers can apply to their situation, and questions for further reflection. Readers are encouraged to go through the book individually, with a counselor, or as part of a support group.Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of race, education, socioeconomic status, or culture. But it does not have to be the end of the story. Healing well and living free are within reach.
In a breakthrough book first published in 1991, the authors address the dynamics in churches that can ensnare people in legalism, guilt, and begrudging service, keeping them from the grace and joy of God's kingdom.Written for both those who feel abused and those who may be causing it, The Subtle Power of Spiritual Abuse shows how people get hooked into abusive systems, the impact of controlling leadership on a congregation, and how the abused believer can find rest and recovery.

Bunny Debarge, Sharon Ewell Foster, Claudia Mair Burney, and other women share their stories of abuse, betrayal, rape, abortion, and abandonment, giving readers permission to be honest about their own pain. The miracle of telling the truth allows the curtain of humiliation to be pulled back and expose secrets, breaking the power shame has over women. As readers come to understand the restoration and healing that happened when the contributors came to God and the truth, they will find their own courage and hope in the God of second chances. "Sistah" - a word often used to describe women of color - is used in this book to move beyond the boundaries of race, class, and faith to bring women of all colors together. With true stories from more than twenty women, "SistahFaith" also includes original poems, fill-in-the-blank Bible study, reflection questions, prayers of proclamation, and scripture. In these pages, women will discover new friends - women who aren't afraid to be seen at their worst and who believe that true sistahs will still see the best in them. .
