Our 8th Annual Healing Hearts Banquet

April 7, 2018!

Our 2018 Healing Hearts Banquet was a huge success as usual.  Our presentation this year was provided by our own S.O.A.R. Ladies through song and testimonials along with a Power Point presentation.

We had a great menu selection including roast beef and Chicken Kiev, along with an assortment of sides.  Desserts were provided by the talented S.O.A.R. women.

We send our heartfelt thanks to all those who assisted in the preparation of this year's event.  We also ask God's blessing on the many patrons who provided the raffle and auction items.  But of course this could never take place without our wonderful supporters and their guests.

It won't be long before we start planning our 9th annual banquet so visit the Healing Hearts Banquet website.

I believe emotional healing is a journey that does not end this side of heaven.  Recently God allowed me to go through a difficult circumstance that in the end brought more healing into my life.  It was a situation that forced me to deal with some unfinished emotional wounds from when I was young.  I have come to look emotional pain as an opportunity to receive more healing.

At Survivors Of Abuse Restored we walk with women through their recovery from childhood sexual abuse.  For some the journey is a series of steep mountains and deep valleys for others it is a path with foothills.

On the healing journey through childhood sexual abuse there are several stops along the way. 

The first stop is finding your voice or beginning to talk about the memories.  Another stop is allowing oneself to feel the pain that has been pushed down for many years.   Also, learning to connect with and express the anger in healthy ways and replacing the false beliefs with truth are important stops on the road to healing.

Do we ever stop healing?  I hope not.  On the journey up the mountain we reach plateaus where we find peace and rest.  But, I am grateful the healing never ends this side of heaven.

Because of Jesus
