Breaking the Chains of the Past: Overcoming Childhood Trauma through the Power of the Atonement
Whether a person is born into an LDS family and experiences abuse or later converts and had an abusive past, it is critical for the adult survivor to find hope, comfort, and healing. Yet all too often, as these brave individuals reach out for help, they struggle in overcoming the gap between the doctrine of the Atonement and the practical application of it. How frustrating it is to be members of Christ’s Church and not know how to use the greatest gift He has given us—His infinite and everlasting sacrifice. The aim of this book is to help those who are survivors of childhood abuse—emotional, physical, and sexual—in two ways. The first is to help readers understand the stumbling blocks that come from childhood abuse that keep us from embracing the power of the Atonement of Christ. The second is to explore concrete, how-to methods of applying and gaining the promised healing that Christ offers us. This book offers many stories and case examples, showing real struggles of members as they try to find the Savior and seek for peace. Their stories will encourage and give hope to anyone who is searching for the promised blessings of healing.
