Growing a Passionate Heart provides a practical guide for counselors and clients to develop an effective healing process for those who deal with problems resulting from childhood sexual abuse. With sensitivity and clear language, Wendy will help you face the trauma of the experience. Through her voice, you will understand how sexual abuse harms the victim’s body, emotions, thinking, relationships, and spirit. Nancy has written a Counselor’s Corner for each chapter that includes encouragement, a tip, and a prayer. You will also hear hope as the same voices—joined by the voice of Jesus, the Redeemer and Healer—describe what healing looks like. I have been blessed to witness the life-changing results of both Wendy’s lay counseling groups and Nancy’s groups and individual clients as they work through this workbook. This book directs us towards God's best—a purposeful, powerful path to love and healing.
