Voice of Truth

If you have experienced betrayal trauma, you may feel that you do not have a voice. You have been decieved and may not know what the "truth" is. The truth was hidden from you, preventing you from living an authentic and empowered life. You may even believe the lies and painful negative messages that keep you stuck in your healing process. God has plans for you, plans for a future and a hope. Hear the voice of truth, and move bravely towards that future and the person He created you to be.

"With the voice of truth and the power of God ... we continue"
(2 Corinthians 6:7).
