Cheryl Robertson found herself having to carry the responsibility of helping raise her eight younger siblings when her mother suddenly died just after her seventeenth birthday. After having experienced several traumatic experiences, she soon became completely overwhelmed with life. The pressure only increased after she was married at 20 years of age. However, she eventually discovered that freedom in life’s journey can be found if we are willing to go down the pathway of pain with some trusted mentors.
Today’s podcast is a story of resilience and the faithfulness of Jesus to help us through the most challenging circumstances. Cheryl still finds the desire to minister to everyone she meets with the hope that they, too, can find freedom as they confront life’s traumas head-on with the help of others.

3) It’s almost impossible to be set free from life’s traumatic events without the assistance of qualified and skilled counselors. While reading can often bring freedom to the mind, counseling can bring freedom to the soul.
4) No matter your age, there is still time to confront the events in your life that may be holding you back from living in total freedom. Jesus can even take your “pain from the past” and use it to bring hope and healing to others today.
