Recovery For Abused Women

“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"

"AWM Violence & Abuse Recovery Program: Getting Beyond the After Effects of Violence & Abuse” Session One Part 1A Oct 1, 2013



The "AWM Violence & Abuse Recovery Program: Getting Beyond the After Effects of Violence & Abuse" which is a part of our "Tools for Triumphant Living" Christian Education Program which was developed by Pastor Charlana Kelly)" will begin October 1, 2013 but I want to give you this information about the Program now so you can review it. The purpose of the Program is to help those who are recently out of abusive relationships or is still struggling with the effects from previous abuse. In this recovery program, I will help you through your recovery process one step at a time; this is a program God gave me and I am giving it to you as He gave it to me. The "AWM Violence & Abuse Recovery Program" is also an interactive Program just like the "AWM Importance of Forgiveness Recovery Program;" therefore, if you respond to me I will respond to you. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss whatever part of the teaching you want either via email to me directly (, on the Recovery For Abused Women web site, on the Abused Woman Ministries, Inc. main Facebook page or on the Abused Woman Ministry School of Healing Facebook page.


This program is part of “Journey of Freedom: Pursuing Freedom From The Bondage of Traumatic Experiences" which is a declaration for 2013 and beyond that you are going to continually pursue your freedom from whatever that has had you in bondage for years, recently, or at present!! Continually pursuit of your freedom means that you will stay free by any means necessary!! You will no longer tolerate foolishness of any kind!! You will rise up and by God's grace take back everything that the enemy has stolen from you (your self-esteem, your self-worth, your freedom to live life as God designed you to, your boldness God gave you through Jesus, and much, much more!! This year, 2013, is the beginning of your life and the best is yet to come!!! God has a plan and purpose for your life and I am your life coach; I am here to show you how to be set free from bondages so you can know and embrace God's will for your life!!


Abused Woman Ministries, Inc. is dedicated to helping women, their children and men who have been abused! We do this by providing them with the tools they need to recover from the bondage of domestic violence and abuse. However, we know that domestic violence/abuse is not the only traumatic event that can keep a person from having a healthy relationship! Therefore, we will also focus on recovering from the following traumatic experiences in the "Journey of Freedom: Pursuing Freedom from the Bondage of Traumatic Experiences:" sexual assault, rejection, abandonment, neglect, loneliness and whatever other traumatic experience God gives me to include.


I am dedicated to walking with you (I cannot do it for you – I am an instrument that God is using to help you recover – as He gives me your tools of recovery, I give them to you then you must decide to take this journey) so are you dedicated to take the journey?


I understand you have busy schedules so I have broken the program down into smaller parts to accommodate your busy schedule and I will post the new teaching once a week on Tuesday – that way you will have a week to study it. And if you cannot start this Program now, start when you get ready to start; it will always be available on our Blog site:!


The journey may not be easy but we are in this together and we will hold each other up; no person left behind!!! If you have any problems contact me directly!! God got you in the palm of His hand and nothing and nobody will be able to pluck you out!! God will NEVER leave you nor forsake you!! Trust Him!!
