•••••
The current statistics are staggering: Studies show that one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthdays. More than four children die every day as a result of child abuse. In at least one study, about 80% of 21,year,olds that were abused as children met criteria for at least one psychological disorder. Emotional abuse is so prevalent, it isn’t even measured.

It is critical for adult survivors of abuse to find hope, comfort, and healing. Yet all too often, as these brave survivors reach out for help, they struggle in overcoming the gap between the doctrine of the Atonement and the practical application of it.

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 reads this book searching for the promised blessings of healing.
