Mending the soul

Understanding & Healing Abuse

Real-Life Stories from MTS partners


It never ceases to amaze me how the Holy Spirit works through this material to heal participants, to draw them close to each other no matter how different their stories, and how they are strengthened in their walk with God in the 14 weeks. I praise God for Mending the Soul!

Linda L.

I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have this study! I am in leadership of women’s ministry in Washington state. I have been walking through my healing journey for 30 years, and God has been so faithful and has used me to support and help other women walk out their own healing journeys. Your book gives such insightful and life-changing information, and I love that it is based on God’s word. I only wish I had this study 30 years ago!

Vicky W.

God led me to Mending the Soul, and it was a life-changer. In other small groups, I heard people share their trauma symptoms. In my MTS group, we addressed the root issues. The biggest miracle that happened through MTS was that I came to embrace God as my loving, heavenly Father.

Mike G.

I could always share my story, but Mending the Soul and Jesus helped me to get past the shame. I feel blessed that the Lord brought me to MTS.


This material is so rich and biblical. Each time I facilitate, I come away with a deeper understanding of our Father’s heart. I don’t want anyone to miss this great study. It is so refreshing to witness the healing that takes place in each individual that attends. It seems as though this was the very thing God used to launch me into a deeper walk with Him and to have more compassion for those that have been abused and traumatized. I am very thankful for Mending the Soul and the hope it brings!

Patty C.

I have been on a healing journey for only two years. The Mending the Soul curriculum has helped me to face my past and begin my healing process. At the age of 65, I am still a work in progress.

Testimonies of Hope & Healing

At Mending the Soul, we take healing to another level. We understand that the depth of pain that trauma and abuse bring is never one dimensional.

Using holistic and sustainable models, we take healing deeper to bring visibility to the hidden root of trauma. To heal is to mend from the inside.

When you’re whole from within, there’s a visible difference that always shows.
