The companion workbook began as a 180 page companion to be used with Redeeming Our Treasures textbook. It evolved into a stand-alone book/workbook, recovery program for individuals and/or groups.
The workbook is coming off the press in 7 days. It is already in use by recovery group leaders who asked to use the pre-view galleys until the workbook was available. This workbook is a treasure trove of healing principles for survivors of any kind of abuse, abandonment, and/or neglect. It is intentionally written to include both men and women.
The book was priced at $12.99 when it was planned as a 180 page workbook. It is now a 320 page volume and the price is the same. The author, an abuse survivor and Christian counselor, is committed to keeping the price low on the workbook in order to make it available to people everywhere. In this economic downtime, it is great to find a bargain!
Don't let the low price fool you! This book will be treasures by all who engage in its healing principles.

From the Heart of the Author
Welcome back to those of you who have read my book Redeeming Our Treasures, Finding Joy in the Shadows of an Abusive Past. I hope you are ready to continue your healing journey as we dig deeper into the shadows of our
past together. There are treasures buried beneath the rubble of our abuse, treasures that will enrich and refine our lives. Only the brave dare go there, and only the humble discover
the pearl of great price—the heart of a Redeemer God who cared enough to stay with us, to keep us alive, and to suffer with us while honoring his commitment to allow free will to all humankind. It has been said that “He (God) makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the
just and the unjust.” (Matthew 5:45 NKJV.) God’s good gifts, such as free will, can be used for evil or for good. The child who has suffered abuse often sees the evil and wonders if there is a God. If He exists, she doubts that He is good, for she doesn’t understand that His gifts can be misused in the hands of abusers. Just as the same blanket that warms us on a cold night can be used in the hands of a murderer to strangle, so the gift of free
will can be used to glorify God and bring joy to the hearts of humankind or used with evil intent to harm the innocent and bring death to trusting hearts.
Christian Retailers/ Oct Issue
Sexual abuse began when author Linda Settles was 5 years old, and the abusive relationship with her father continued for 28 years. It’s hard to imagine a more damaged childhood. She’s clearly not writing about somehow finding joy in the abuse, but rather about revisiting the past to redeem the treasures that were missed by a child growing up in fear, pain, shame and degradation. Her story is one of healing and redemption. Now a trained Christian counselor, she leads her readers with eloquence and sensitivity out of a place of brokenness into the freedom and light of restoration. This landmark book is highly recommended for anyone who’s suffered from an abusive relationship and for those who are walking beside them on the path to healing

A companion workbook is available (p $12.99, ISBN 9780979023859)
Review by Cynthia Wall, LCSW
Linda’s honest telling of her story encourages the reader to challenge the primary fear of those who were traumatized as children, that the threat of disclosure would reveal the child as worthless and sinful, unlovable by their family and even God. This book shows the reader how to reclaim the innocence and sense of worth stolen unfairly by childhood abuse. Trust can be rebuilt, especially in oneself, and then grow to include others and the Divine.
