Easier and Lighter is a book that uses poetry, scripture, and testimony to minister to women who have survived sexual abuse. This book will address the stigma, silence and heaviness that come along with sexual abuse. Starting with connecting the victim's pain to the cries of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and ending with a picture of wholeness tied to a triumphant Jesus who still retains his scars, book study serves as a roadmap to wholeness. Easier and Lighter's poetry links the past presented in the Bible with a modern and urban voice expressing today's issue of abuse and has scriptural lessons that can be used as personal devotions or group Bible studies. So if your abusive past is weighing down the potential of your future, if you're looking for a resource that ministers to your spirit or looking for resources to minister to women from a spiritual perspective, this book is for you.
