Wendy Redroad offers an innovative approach to forgiving abuse and betrayal. And she uproots shame every step of the way!
- Why is it that earnest forgivers fall into the cracks of despair after they've chosen to forgive?
- Why do believers repeat prayers, re-take classes, and re-read books on the topic of forgiveness?
- Why do so few Christians ask in church: Why can't I forgive?
What if you knew the answers to these questions? What if the struggle to forgive could be demystified in one simple Bible-based truth? It can.
Five instinctual desires often arise from abuse/betrayal. All are natural components of the human psyche. So, of course they're in the Bible! The million dollar question isn't whether or not we should have them, but rather, who's got control--God or the enemy? Wendy's teaching is the first to compare and contrast how it shakes out when the enemy fulfills these five desires and what happens when Christ takes the lead.
"I was abused verbally, sexually, and psychologically. When I told my Bible study group that I hated my abuser, they prayed God would help me to forgive him. I wish they'd prayed for me. Wendy helped me to understand why I struggled to forgive and then showed me how to move forward."
--Laura [support group attendee]
Is Your Savior Your Healer?
When children incur physical wounds they want parents to make it better--without touching the wound. Cleansing dirt and grass out of a skinned knee is a painful process, and yet necessary for healing.
Wendy shares a personal story to illustrate how adults share a similar mindset in regards to emotional wounds. Like children, grown-ups want really cool Band-aids, but Jesus is more interested in our "boo-boos." This heartfelt message helps women to:
- Recognize how they unknowingly abandon self-care and unknowingly hinder restoration
- Understand how Christ uses ordinary circumstances to cleanse extraordinary wounds
- Grant God sovereignty over their pain by taking tangible steps with supportive Scripture
