Our first recommendation is an offering from one of our allies, Dan Allender. His book The Wounded Heart is unparalleled for helping adult victims of childhood sexual abuse understand their stories and for giving them language for the landscape of their hearts. (We also recommend reaching out to the Allender Center for additional resources.)
We can't overstate how important it will be to unpack your story in the presence of a compassionate and gifted counselor. Although neither John nor Wild at Heart offers personal counseling, you can check our Allies Network to see if there is someone in your area.
In the meantime, here are a few resources we hope will be helpful:
- Restoration of the Heart
- Healing the Wound
- Sexual Healing
- Prayer for Inner Healing
- Prayer for Sexual Healing
- Soul Ties
May the God who provides shelter, comfort, grace, forgiveness, and healing provide a path, a light to follow.
