^Infertility, divorce, domestic violence, eating disorders...all have become part of a day's work for women and men in ministry to women. Yet, most are not prepared for this aspect of ministering to women in real pain over real issues. ^ Designed to give leaders and care givers greater understanding, insights for shepherding, and referral resources, "Shepherding Women in Pain" is a compilation from contributors who have expertise and experience with women on the given issue. For examples Stacey Womack, founder and Executive Director of Abuse Recovery Ministry & Services wrote the chapter on domestic violence and Kimberley Davidson, founder of Olive Branch Outreach, authored the chapter discussing eating disorders. ^The reader will be provided concise, practical, and grace-infused information designed to help women deal constructively with the trauma of their life experiences. This book will serve as a key resource - read and re-read often - to those who serve women in pain.
