Perhaps no one endures the ripple of sexual abuse more than the spouses of those who were abused. The two were called to become one. Not two.
And in this joining of two, all things are shared. Not just the future. But the past.
Marriage, the joining of two souls, is difficult enough. Add sexual abuse history to the mix, and you've got another mountain to climb.
But here’s the hope, mountains can be climbed.

In January, Tamar’s Redemption Tuesdays will feature couples who are facing the mountain and choosing to climb. We’ll ask them honest questions and look forward to their vulnerable answers. They’re not climbing experts. They are learning along the way, working together, picking each other up as they stumble, and dusting each other off, taking needed rest and shelter along the way.
They aren't perfect. They’re in process. They can’t offer you healing, just their honest thoughts, and a promise.
You’re not alone.
Please, come join us in the climb.
