Overcoming Abuse God's Way
is a Christian ministry that teaches the cause and effects of abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, verbal, emotional, financial or otherwise) from friends, family, strangers, spouses or children. Abuse in families is a cycle. It is a learned behavior that is passed down from one generation to the next. Many children who grow up in violent and neglectful homes learn at an early age that violence or following others is the way to deal with stress and other problems.
70 % of sexually abused children go on to use DRUGS & ALCOHOL to mask their pain. These children grow up to be ADDICT adults passive or angry, confused and very insecure repeating the cycle of abuse.
80% of serial rapists when surveyed in prison confessed they were sexually abused as boys: 80%!! Educate the parent * Save the child. Educate/Help the teen * Save their Future. ***Overcoming Abuse God’s Way – Because You are Worth It
