Abuse comes in many forms, so what do you do when you realize you're being abused? There is help for abuse. Whether you're caught in domestic violence, or you're experiencing verbal abuse, this minibook will meet you in the trenches of hopelessness and give you the tools to deal with abuse. You don't have to endure an abusive relationship alone; you can be freed from abuse. Jo Anne Aleman writes about her past of abuse, and will open the door to your heart, letting God's truth set you free. Psychological abuse, emotional abuse, and physical abuse all share one common truth: they are not okay, and you do not have to withstand it any longer. You or someone you know can be freed from abuse.
Jo Ann Aleman tells her true story about the abusive relationships she endured as an adult, and how she watched the cycle of abuse between her father and her mother as a child. Though she knew that what she witnessed was not normal, her false attempts to find prince charming lead her from one abusive marriage to another. Before she knew it, she was empty, reaching out to the only one that could truly save her, Jesus.
Abuse to Favor includes a Bible Study by Paige Henderson that helps diagnose why women often stay in abusive relationships—deception. Paige takes you through the story in John 9:1-12, a story about spit, dirt, and a miracle. Learn what Jesus can do when he heals your wounds and helps you to see clearly.
Abuse to Favor will bring you hope and wholeness. It will speak to your heart and will strengthen your faith. It includes questions and Scripture passages — along with space to journal.

...About the Freedom Series...
"The Freedom Series deals with many issues that I have come across during the decades I have counseled people at my church. Each book is great for its designed application. However, the Fear to Courage book stands out the most to me since so many are driven by fear. This book is so Bible-based, very direct, easy to understand, and also applicable. It is refreshing to have a resource that doesn’t just talk about an issue, but shows how to apply biblical concepts to it. I highly recommend this series!""

"Life is like a priceless crystal vase which falls from a safe shelf and explodes. Shatters. Broken. In a thousand ways we feel the pain of life. Oh it hurts … to the point of hiding. Despair becomes relentless. Hate begins to consume us. Disillusioned. We search for wholeness. We pray. We need someone to show us how to pick up the pieces of our life. And then one day God answers our prayers with The Freedom Series. Lunch-size substantial intelligence from authors, with real stories of their own divorce, rape, paralyzing fear, abandonment, abuse, illicit affairs, and other tragedies. Each mini-book offers rich Bible based hope from God, expert counselors and no-nonsense how to recover steps. All designed so you can be free to smile again, trust wiser, grieve effectively and live with joy.""

"As a woman's ministry leader, I've seen the devastation of divorce crush a family. The loss of hopes and dreams, plus the fear and anxiety about the future, often cause women to go into a downward spiral. Without any help, many times the numbness and fear can cause them to make poor choices. The Freedom Series gives me tools to help them. The books are on the topics I face regularly: divorce, abuse, fear and anxiety, and recovering from affairs. I strongly recommend this series.""
