Shattered Soul?: Five Pathways to Healing the Spirit after Abuse and Trauma
Category : Religion & SpiritualityISBN No :9781935758099
Abuse and trauma damage more than body and mind. The soul can also feel wounded. Shame and feelings of abandonment distort and limit one's ability to relate to a faith community and to trust in God. Experiences of abuse can block a person's capacity to pray and worship, and stunt spiritual growth. Shattered Soul? reveals five pathways of healing for survivors of abuse and guides readers to wholeness, to experience life and faith anew. Included are inspiring stories of survivors who reflect on pathways of courage, holy anger, grief, forgiveness, and transformation. Your spirit will feel whole again!

This is an awesome book. This is a well thought out and written book. I love the way it is organized with lovely activities and interaction. So far it has been a warm, loving, and gentle. I am actually looking forward to navagating this journey. It seems like a well balanced blend of information, personal stories, and guidance. I like that it has spiritual references without feeling religous. Again it has been a great book.
