Dr. Bill and Pamela Ronzheimer offer a rare blend of clinical accuracy, personal experience, distinctly Christian perspective, and loving pastoral care as they address the complicated and painful topic of marriages impacted by childhood sexual abuse (CSA). Their understandings are derived from their own experiences, a lifetime of pastoring a church, Bill’s doctoral research, and their work with many couples healing from the consequences of CSA. . . . Difficult, complex, and often painful concepts are described and explored in a vulnerable and personable manner. They focus on increasing understanding, personal and relationship growth, and moving forward in truth and love.

Your ministry has been life changing for me and I still need to keep doing the work. Honestly, if it wasn’t for your support when I started this journey I don’t know where I would be. You’ve been a bright light that shined into my life and helped expose the darkness. I’m forever grateful that God has sent you into my life.
