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 5: Honor)

It is an honor to bear another’s burden. To know that a survivor has entrusted you with their deepest hurt is a sacred trust—a trust that must be guarded and protected.

As with all relationships, keeping what’s shared in private, private, is important. But for a survivor, who has had their right to trust violated when they were sexually molested as a child, keeping what’s shared private is imperative to their healing.

We love survivors well when we keep their confidences. By doing this we help them trust; we help them heal.

What an honor!
