Act Your Age

Throughout this book, you will notice that I often refer to the clients we work with as ‘girls.’ This is because, regardless of literal age, the children and women who come to Wellspring Living are all wounded little girls inside. Once a girl is molested, she is emotionally arrested at that age, making her vulnerable to unhealthy people and giving her a tendency of making life choices based on the age at abuse….

My heart aches for these girls. So many have been battered, bruised, and abused. They have weathered storms few of us can imagine. They are often suspicious of relationships and offered help. They do not smile or trust easily. They have been betrayed too many times. To survive, they have learned to be tough. Yet underneath the hard exterior is the loving person God intended them to be.”

– “The White Umbrella,” Mary Frances Bowley, p.18
