It's never too late to begin the healing process from childhood sexual abuse. It's never too early to fall in love with the person God created you to be. Long ago someone made a choice to take away your innocence, but today that someone can't touch your freedom to heal.

On Loving Survivors Well (Part 4: Balance)

“Don’t make any major decisions when you are physically, mentally, and spiritually exhausted.” I was getting ready to make a life changing decision and the voice of wisdom wafting through the airways drifted into my ears and whirled around my heart. I was weary. Really weary. I took the advice of the voice. The decision could wait. Then I focused on nourishing myself—body, mind, and soul.

Solid relationships require time and energy. I give my best to my husband, children, friends, and others when I am physically rested and I have time to refuel my mind and soul.

Loving survivors well is no different. We will love them best when our lives are balanced and nourished—body, mind, and soul.
