Reverend Sherri L. Board , PhD, Writing Beside You on Your Healing Journey

I am an adult survivor of childhood abuse and I love the Lord.

At times, have I been angry with him? Yes. At times, did I feel he was my absent father? Yes. And at times, did I believe that God could stop the abuse even though he gave humankind free will? Yes.

But these thoughts represent the distorted thinking of a hurt child and not those of a mature adult.

As Romans 8:28 tells us, God facilitates our good, our very salvations. He does not promise us that we will not suffer, we live in a fallen world, but he will turn our suffering into good--if we ask him.

When I truly started to believe that God was good and not the angry god of my childhood, he called me to fulfill his purpose on my life: to specialize in bringing God's healing to adult survivors of childhood abuse through Christian Temperament E-Mail Counseling.

To prepare for our Lord's calling on my life, I received a doctorate in Clinical Christian Counseling with Honors, am a Certified Temperament Counselor and am a Certified Brain Health Coach. I am, as well, the coauthor of "What We're Afraid to Ask: 365 Days of Healing for Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse."

As a fellow survivor of childhood abuse and as a human being that continues to allow God's love to heal her, I am here to help you with your emotional well-being and spiritual growth. And I will write beside you, one good e-mail at a time. Until then, if you have any questions for me at all, please feel free to contact me. Contact Me

I wish you God's peace.
