Do you know what it’s like to walk on eggshells around someone out of fear? Fear is crippling, but you don’t have to be a slave to fear any longer. As a people-pleaser, you might have stayed in a relationship or withstood abuse from someone to side-step conflict, but you can be freed from people who bring fear into your life. This booklet will help you define the root of your fear, whether it’s sexual abuse or something else that’s just as damaging, and help you move past it to healing and wholeness.
Kim Vastine tells her powerful story of entrapment as a child with a sexually abusive uncle and a physically abusive father. She shares what her deepest struggles were as a little girl, wanting to blame herself because she didn’t say “no” to either abuser and feeling the pressure to be perfect. Neither avenue lead to wholeness; it wasn’t until Kim developed her Godly fear of the Lord that she found hope and healing.
Sharon Ball Dale’s “Steps to Freedom” section prepares women for the trauma they will uncover when thinking back to memories of abuse. She gives women steps to forgiveness to ultimately turn their fears into what makes them courageous.
