Sometimes we must risk undoing who we’ve become in order to conceive the life we desire. -- Kimberly Davidson
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
We live in a culture where sexual freedom reigns, and pain and exploitation is rampant. Multitudes of women have emotional scars and deeply wounded souls. Millions of Christian women, of all ages, are trapped in pain, broken families, economic misery, depression, physical illnesses, emotional disorders, fear, and addiction—all of which create harmful thoughts literally embedded in their minds.
Did you know:
- Kaitlin is emotionally distant from her husband because he hits her regularly?
- Missy missed this past Mother’s Day service because she didn’t want to be reminded of the child she aborted?
- Briana feels inadequate and chooses not to volunteer for any job because key caregivers in her early life told her she was stupid and worthless?
- Alana won’t attend a Father’s Day service because she doesn’t want to be reminded of the father who molested her?
- Lorie won’t go to an evening event because she’s scared to go outside, for fear she may be raped again … and that she chose a lesbian lifestyle out of safety and pain?
- Tanya didn’t show up Wednesday night because she chose to view pornography sites that she just can’t get enough of?
- Karla gave up her dream of being a missionary because she believes God can’t use “trash”?
- Diedre wants to divorce her husband because he forces her to act out demeaning sexual acts?
- Angie feels inferior and ashamed because her husband told her he was only interested in men?
These scenarios represent common issues in our churches; and women who are wounded and damaged—yet may be labeled as “angry,” “indifferent,” “promiscuous,” “a drama queen,” or “bitter.” These hurting hearts sit in our pews and youth groups. Gripped by fear, guilt, anger, and shame, they hope to find healing in our churches, rather than indifference and condemnation. They need the biblical guidance found in God’s Word.
Kimberly specializes in sensitive speaking to the brokenhearted—to emotionally hurt and sexually abused women. She shares her years of experience and knowledge of Scripture with the walking wounded. Every woman will receive help from her counsel.
