“Healing Voices” consists of 11 real-life stories of women who have experienced various forms of violence (domestic violence, rape, incest, and other violent acts), with their “common thread” being the realization they survived because of their faith in God. Some of the women have chosen to remain anonymous and others reveal their identities, but all desire their voices be heard and want their stories to inspire hope and renewal for other women who may be in abusive relationships, or who are recovering from such experiences. Each woman’s story is followed by a spiritual reflection written by a female clergy person to help discern the message of hope that each story reveals.
