Courage to Heal
with Laura Davis





From the Introduction:

People say “time heals all wounds,” and it’s true to a certain extent. Time will dull some of the pain, but deep healing doesn’t happen unless you consciously choose it. Healing from child sexual abuse takes years of commitment and dedication. But if you are willing to work hard, if you are determined to make lasting changes in your life, if you are able to find good resources and skilled support, you can not only heal but thrive. We believe in miracles and hard work.
