Bloom In The Dark

by Paula Mosher Wallace
Have you ever experienced a hurt that didn't qualify for a sympathy card? Did embarrassment or shame keep you from getting help or support? Do you have a loved one who's been abused? Many women face trauma and abuse. In these pages, you will read 30 stories, poems, and letters that tell these testimonies. Without sugarcoating her situation, each woman shares her pain, how she made it through, and how God met her. Our journeys to healing are different. Your story may not be reflected in the pages of this book, but you will see that you are not alone. We can all reach out to the same God who helped each of these women. Christ will meet you, carry you, hold you, and heal you, too! Warning: best when read with tissues and a box of chocolates.

Ditch The Drama

by Ginny Priz
Why is life so hard? Why do relationships hurt so much? Why can’t I find peace? Will I ever be good enough? Big questions. Important questions. Relentless questions.
“It was the questions themselves that kept me stuck,” says Ginny Priz, the Single Handed Serenity Coach. “By trying to find out why people hurt me or why each situation was unfair, I stopped myself from actually accepting the pain and moving on. I was determined to ditch the drama I had created. I became tireless in applying the Serenity Prayer to all situations, people and emotions in my life. The effect has been astounding for me. I believe it will be just as amazing for you!”

Ditch The Drama: Study Guide

by Ginny Priz
Drama creates chaos and leaves us feeling trapped in unhealthy relationships. But it doesn’t have to rule our lives and keep us stuck. In this 8-video Bible study, author and TV personality Ginny Priz reveals how a relationship with God can help you navigate painful emotions. Find joy and freedom no matter what kind of drama you face. Using the Biblical principles in the Serenity Prayer, you’ll learn the tools you need to create and maintain healthy relationships. Ginny uses humor and personal experience to bring these concepts to life. Plus, her drama-free teaching style explains messy concepts in an easy-to-understand format. (Includes a BONUS SESSION on codependency and narcissism.)
