    As Christians, we are called to continually grow in Christlikeness. As we grow in faith, our desire to become like Jesus should increase.

    Hidden behind the façade of an apparently normal or happy family may be violence that we cannot see.

    Think about the two words making up the term “family violence.” Would you say that these two words sit comfortably with each other? I would say not. “Family” brings to mind the ideas of warmth and security. But when...

    Bahar’s* story is all too familiar but no less horrifying than those of so many women forced into marriage. Her father abused her, and then when she became older, he forced her to marry an older man.

    “My husband was an alcoholic. He was not working, and I had to work and bring money home,” Bahar told the TWR Women of Hope team....

    Prayer, TWR Women of Hope

    As Christians, we have the privilege of speaking with our Creator through prayer. See what the author of Hebrews reminds us in Hebrews 4:14-16: “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to...

    Violence against women,...
