Like an albatross hung around your neck-

If your childhood was filled with abuse and neglect, or if you grew up in a dysfunctional family you know the heartache it can cause. Like a dead albatross hung around the neck, the stench of past problems lingers on.

The effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) do not just go away. The physical effects are well documented and wide ranging: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, ischemic heart disease, chronic lung disease, liver disease, impaired brain development, diabetes, obesity, and more. Emotional effects of ACEs can result in poor self-image, nervousness, anxiety, anger, self-pity, depression, attempted suicide and more. In addition, there are spiritual effects. Bitterness toward God and others (Hebrews 12:15), unforgiveness, unbelief.

ACE Overcomers is a program designed to help you overcome the effects of adverse childhood experiences. It is based on The ACE Study of Dr. Vincent Felitti and the Centers for Disease Control and will enable you to overcome past adversity through biblical principles.
