You Are Not Alone. There Is Hope!

Join us for our third annual Recovery Sunday in churches across the nation!

How it all began

Have you ever experienced a hurt so deep that it 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. But that doesn’t have to be the end of the story. Countless women have healed from their past with God’s power.

Every success story has one thing in common – hope!

We at Bloom In The Dark have seen the power of story provide the kind of hope that change lives! That’s why publishing and distributing Bloom In The Dark to every broken woman is crucial to our mission!

30 True Stories of Hope & Redemption

Bloom In the Dark changes what we discuss as Christians in relation to abuse and personal darkness. Pain and abuse are everywhere, but there is hope in God!

Read true stories of women who have lived through the pain but have been healed and restored!

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!

This book has been a God sent! My healing had really stalled because I felt like a freak and thought that no one could have possibly been where I had. I had so much guilt and shame and a lot of self loathing and didn’t think I deserved healing. Reading this book showed me that I truly am not alone. I am learning how God sees me and what happened to me. The guilt, shame, and self loathing are now a work in progress as is my overall healing. And I credit this book for giving me the motivation that I needed to help me truly give healing everything I have. Paula and the women who’s stories that are in this book are some amazingly strong women. I only hope that one day I can also be strong.

For anyone who has suffered any kind of abuse, whether physical, sexual, emotional, or mental, this is one book that can help heal. Having gone through abuse myself, reading this book allowed me to let go of the hurt and bitterness I felt. Thank you, Paula, for putting these stories together. I pray others find the courage to read it, and to forgive their abusers.

These stories are absolutely real, raw, and heartbreaking. Reading this book gave me hope in God’s perfect love and healing, for anyone in any situation. I now have renewed faith, that I too, can find true healing in Jesus.
