The damage you suffered may have been done in one terrible moment or over time. But the healing and the restoration will unfold at your pace, at a human pace. It unfolds as part of your story, and it unfolds over time.
As a vulnerable child, instead of being protected, helped, and comforted, you were physically, emotionally, and/or sexually abused. Learn how to express your experience to God by composing your own personal liturgy. Pouring out your heart to God will begin the healing process and lead to the small growing steps of faith and restoration.
