RECOMMENDATIONS AND RESOURCES FOR CHRISTIAN WOMEN
Sweet Friend, if you are a born again follower of Jesus Christ the Bible is very clear that we WILL face trials and tribulations in this World. It’s a given! Our trials can be financial problems, health issues, problems at your job, etc…
Life is going to wreak havoc on us at times, however, that being said, it is our belief in God and faith in his word that will help us to overcome Life’s many struggles. For this reason, it’s of the utmost to have recommendations and resources for Christian women easily accessible!
Faith in Jesus Christ gives us Peace of mind in any situation we endure because we know that God will see us through them. We serve the true and living God that can deliver us from all our problems.
God does not promise us a life FREE of heartaches and pain, therefore we need to remain steadfast in the faith of God no matter what challenges come our way.
As a final point and in my opinion, the MOST crucial part in our sanctification journey is that you and I can take all of our cares and concerns we have before the throne of Grace and God will hear our plea.
The one thing you and I need to understand is our faith has nothing to do with a favorable outcome or the receiving of our desire but rather accepting the Lord’s will in our lives no matter what that may be. So let’s get started going over our list of recommendations and resources for Christian women.

Uninvited – Lysa Terkeurst’s Resources for Christian Women
Satan wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love.
- Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.

Trusting God: A Girlfriends in God Faith Adventure Resources for Christian Women
“Just trust me.”
Those are the words we often hear in movies just before something bad happens. And yet, we are told to trust God. In a culture where we tend to take control of our own lives, trusting God has become a religious platitude rather than a life-changing attitude. We say it, but do we really mean it? And what does trusting God really look like?
Throughout Scripture, God reveals His complex character by identifying Himself by different names—names that shed light on who He is and how we should relate to Him.
In this engaging book, the popular Girlfriends in God devotional team introduces you to forty of those names, each of which invites you to glory in a different aspect of our amazing God.
In each day’s reading you’ll encounter personal, inspiring stories and biblical truths that lead you to a deeper understanding of who God is and what He does on your behalf.
You’ll be fed with Scripture that you can apply to your unique circumstances. And most importantly, as you come to know Him by name, you’ll draw closer to God and learn to trust Him more fully.

Domestic Violence Verbal Abuse Resources
What is considered verbal abuse?
Verbal abuse, in all honesty, can be as damaging as physical abuse, and harder to determine. You must understand that Abuse comes in various forms and not all of them are physical. Verbal Abuse side effects remain long after physical abuse, unfortunately.
When an individual repeatedly uses words in a demeaning or frightening way, that is the definition of verbal abuse sweet friend. However, you will start believing this behavior is “normal” as it slowly wears down on your self-worth and self-esteem. Learn how I avoid the lie’s that invade my mind so often.
Let me give you examples first before proceeding to the list of resources. The number to call for Verbal Abuse HELP is 1-866-223-1111 or Text 612-399-9995
Signs of Verbal Abuse from another include
- Frequently yell or scream at you.
- Hit the wall pound their fists or throw things.
- Arguments take you by surprise but you get blamed for starting them.
- Make you feel guilty and consider themselves the victim.
- Get into your personal space or block you from moving away.
- Want credit for not hitting you.
- Insulting and humiliating you then proceed to accuse you of being sensitive or say they were joking and you have no sense of humor.
- Use hurtful behaviors for when you’re alone but act completely different when others are around.

Emotional Abuse Resources
What is considered emotional abuse?
Emotional abuse can also be considered brainwashing due to the consistent bashing on your self-confidence, sense of self-worth, trust in perceptions, and self-concept. In other words, you find yourself constantly being berated, belittled, and intimidated, all of these have the same end result. The prevention line to call is 1-800-273-8255.
Eventually, the recipient of emotional abuse loses all sense of self and personal value. Emotional abuse cuts to the core of an individual, leaving behind scars that are by far deeper and long-lasting than physical scars. You can often reach a breaking point and want to find hope when you reach the end of your rope so to speak.

BEST RECOMMENDATIONS TO HELP YOU FIND HEALING AFTER ABUSE
Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse – Gregory Jantz
This helpful guide reveals how those who have been emotionally abused can overcome the past and rebuild their self-image.
Being separated from my abusive husband didn’t make me a domestic violence survivor. It surely didn’t release me from the grip of his brainwashing control and the innate power he had over me.
As I started putting my shattered life back together after being separated from my abuser, I still felt his compelling control shaping my every thought and action.
I didn’t feel like a domestic violence survivor just because I was no longer with my abuser. In fact, I felt like a remotely-controlled, confused puppet still shaken by residual influences in my mind.
In order to become a true survivor, knowing that the thoughts in my head were mine, I had to:
- Identify the deeply rooted lies of my abuser that I believed were true
- Extract the lies
- Lean on God’s strength to defeat the lies and replace them with His word
- Acknowledge that the trauma experienced from the abuse left physical and emotional scars that needed to be furthered explored
Eleven years later, being a domestic violence survivor means being free and open to living again. It means I am open to making decisions, building trusting relationships again, and eventually feeling love again.
It means that the thoughts in my head are mine and mine only. With the emotional abuse removed from my mind, God’s grace and love have taken over. It’s a calmness and peace I never thought possible.
Can a woman who has been deeply hurt by life’s circumstances be healed, heart and soul? If she has been wounded by a man she loved and trusted, can she love and trust again?
As a woman who endured years of abuse, abandonment, and betrayal by those closest to her, Joyce Meyer can answer with a resounding “yes!”
Meyer’s positivity comes from living her own journey, and from seeing so many women who don’t believe they can fully overcome their pain–or even know where to begin–find the guidance they need in the life-changing wisdom of the Bible.
Beauty for Ashes – Receiving Emotional Healing: Joyce Meyer
Many people seem to have it all together outwardly, but inside they are a wreck. Their past has broken, crushed, and wounded them inwardly. They can be healed.
God has a plan, and Isaiah 61 reveals that the Lord came to heal the brokenhearted. He wants to heal victims of abuse and emotional wounding.
Joyce Meyer is a victim of the physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse she suffered as a child. Yet today she has a nationwide ministry of emotional healing to others like herself.
In Beauty for Ashes, she outlines major truths that brought healing in her life and describe how other victims of abuse can also experience God’s healing in their lives.
You will learn:
- How to Deal with the Emotional Pain of Abuse
- How to Understand Your Responsibility to God for Overcoming Abuse
- Why Victims of Abuse Often Suffer from Other Addictive Behaviors
- How to Grab Hold of God’s Unconditional Love
- The Importance of God’s Timing in Working Through Painful Memories
There is currently a silent pandemic leaving millions of people feeling alone and confused, struggling to escape the self-doubt, fear and so many unanswered questions.
Invisible abuse is rarely talked about because of how hard it is to pin-point, even by mental health professionals.
Fortunately, there is a growing wealth of information available, particularly around the term narcissistic abuse. After discovering the keywords and digging for answers, the next step is what to do about it now.
It’s important to understand that leaving the abusive person and educating yourself about the abuse is not the same as healing. This discovery is the actual start of the journey of self-healing after narcissistic abuse.
