Have you been wounded by those who profess to be Christians? Was the Word of God used to bash and wound you? Do you still despair? If you are still living in a wounded state, this book is for you. I had a dream that I was sailing along the river in a fishing boat. A group of people were with me. All of a sudden, I saw these large caves in the middle of the river. I turned to the man steering the boat and said, "See look over there that is where the fish are." He said, "Oh my, it is really dark in there." I said, "Yes, let's steer the boat in there and get them out into the light." Upon waking, I instinctively knew that it was the Lord telling me to go and get those "Church Hurt People" out of the dark place that they are in and bring them back to Jesus, the of Light of the World "Truly God has used Joan Pitter in the midst of adversaries, trials, tribulation, and hurt to encourage others who have or maybe experiencing such hurts. Joan's love for God as God loves others through her, assures us we are more than conquers and can do all things through Christ who strengthens us." - Pastor Carolyn A. Claiborne, Licensed Nurse and Psychologist "In this writing, Joan Pitter does an amazing job of forcing the reader to extrapolate life lessons and pedagogical moments of the past. Her personal experiences have equipped her to produce a book that will help hurting church-goers to rise above their pain. Joan uses a conductor-like anointing to call all church-hurt people to brace the roller coaster ride to healing." - Pastor D. James Thomas, Founder of D. James Thomas Ministries, INC. Joan was both born and bought up in London England. She is a qualified therapist, trained in the UK, specializing in mental health and all drug or alcohol addictions. She did part of her internship in Philadelphia USA. She has a deep compassion for soldiers who were a part of her UK clientele, feeling that although their sacrifice and bravery of their service to their country was outstanding, yet after coming home from the trauma of War, the lack of treatment and help available was scarce. Some of Joan's clientele was also in Church. She also has deep empathy for those who were verbally, mentally and physically abused in Church and is determined to reach all towards a healthy and healing state of wellbeing through her book. Joan has resided in Boston Massachusetts for the past fourteen years.
