Overview

Christa's story is different from my own, yet the struggle is the same. As I read Learning to Trust Again, I found myself saying," Yes, that's it! That's exactly what it's like" I truly identified with her. She records with realism and accuracy her emotional and spiritual journey from victim to survivor to overcomer.

     Teresa, abuse survivor and overcomer

With a rare blend of integrity, depth, and courage, Ms. Sands employs her descriptive prose--honed through years of personal journaling--to draw us through the agonizing and life-giving journey that a sexual abuse victim can take toward the heart of a God who consumes the deepest of tragedies with his unrelenting love.   This book is an offer to all who are willing to read it with an open heart to find the deepest form of hope by embracing the paradox: "Whoever loses his life for Me will find it."

     Scott A Courey, MSW Lighthouse Christian Counseling Holland, Michigan

I admire Christa's courage, candor, and passion. Leaning to Trust Again clearly shows what God has done in her life, the importance of His Word in the healing process, and how He can redeem a very difficult life experience to help others.

    When the time is right for you to heal a must read!

    This book came at a perfect time in my life. I felt it gave a great sense of how kids feel when they are abused and the healing process they can go through.
