  • Increases awareness and understanding while offering hope an healing for survivors
  • Helps survivors find strength in their Christian faith
  • Discusses the effects of domestic violence on children
  • Includes a 32-page study guide and a package of awareness brochures

This DVD program contains an in-depth discussion of the theological issues that are often troubling or confusing for Christian women in abusive relationships: blame, submission, anger, the marriage covenant, divorce, repentance, forgiveness, despair and faith.
