“And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.” ~Psalms 55:6

Thousands of innocent children have had their lives shattered by growing up or being raised in Worldwide Church of God, or related abusive offshoot. Their writings, poems and testimonies reveal their pain, guilt, anguish and fears as they struggle to rebuild their lives. We dedicate these pages to them in order that they might receive validation, hope and encouragement on the path of recovery and to know they are not alone.

Note: Letters from child survivors of WCG and offshoots can be found in our Letters.


“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” ~ John 14:18
