New release - PASSION STRUCK


5 Ways to Heal From the Shattering Consequences of Abuse
Why it is vital you give yourself the grace and time to heal

Over the past several weeks, I have interviewed several guests on the Passion Struck podcast who have experienced the consequences of abuse and neglect. These include my recent interviews with Kara Robinson Chamberlain, who was kidnapped by a serial killer and sexually abused. Carrington Smith, who was emotionally abused and neglected for years by her parents and sexually abused while she was in college. I also interviewed Rabbi Avremi Zippel, who was sexually abused for ten years during childhood. I created this podcast to bring more awareness to how to heal from abuse and face the future with hope.

Abuse is not something the victim chooses, but their circumstances after the abuse are their choice. This is not easy, and it is understandable why some don’t get to fully heal, but It is worth every ounce of your effort to try and heal from the consequences of abuse.
