Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


These 366 daily affirmations and meditations extend support and wisdom to women who have survived childhood sexual abuse.

Unknown number of women have suffered sexual abuse in childhood. Acknowledging the abuse after years of silence and secrecy and beginning a healing journey require support and encouragement. Long after the abuse has ended, negative internal messages can invade and linger. Daybreak's positive statements intercept self-defeating messages, guiding readers toward new and healthy ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving.

These affirmations and thoughtful meditations cover topics such as intimacy, fear, play, sharing secrets, and anger. Read daily or by subject, Daybreak brings the experience of sexual abuse into the light where hope resides and change and healing are possible.

Women survivors of other types of abuse and men survivors of abuse may also find benefit from these readings.
