It Was Wrong: David R. Miller, Philip J. Henry

ByDavid R. Miller Philip J. Henry

Abuse has a way of choking off the voice of the abused. The pain and frustration experienced by a victim of abuse multiplies over the years that the secret remains hidden. No trauma is more hurtful than that which occurs in the safest environment, the home, and no trauma is more deeply felt than when the abuser is one of the trusted, “inner circle” of one’s family. Our ministry as Christian counselors will undoubtedly bring us into contact with people asking for help to find the voice inside of them that is crying out for release and justice. We serve God by helping to find that voice.
