"He has sent me to
bind up the
(shattered in heart
or mind), to proclaim
freedom for the
captives and release
for the prisoners."
We cannot guarantee that the perspectives presented in these resources
are fully compatible with the healing approach taught by RCM.

Having witnessed the after-effects of horrific trauma and then seeing the power of God's amazing restoration, the authors of The Life Model have had opportunity to learn the "big picture" of life. This book synthesizes these truths into an understandable model, providing practical guidance for ministering more effectively.
Live from the heart Jesus gave you. Be the person you were designed to be. How easily hearts are wounded! Wounded people cannot live from their hearts, because they get stuck in their hurt. Get unstuck and get your church unstuck. Your church will become more effective when the leaders and the wounded live from their hearts.
The Life Model is not just a theory—it is a model. The Life Model does not just talk about growing—it gives you practical steps on how to mature. The Life Model does not just promote recovery—it identifies specific ways to heal traumas. And lastly, The Life Model does not just offer casual reading--it challenges you to change and grow and be the person that God designed you to be.

This is the best book on maturity for any person, male or female. It uses the same idealized model structure as the rest of The Life Model. The content is so compelling that person after person calls it “life changing.” This book has been translated into more languages than anything Wilder has written. The power of this maturity model moves people from widely different cultures.
The most controversial aspect of Living With Men continues to be developing a full group identity as part of maturity. The way a group identity is anchored in community makes a huge change in how we view elders. Most Christians use the word elder to refer to an office that has almost no connection to maturity. When we begin with the end in mind, we develop a view of elders that is beyond what most people expect. This should not be a surprise. When people have no goal they don’t get very far.

This 21-page, full color booklet is the simple and attractive way to share Immanuel healing with others. Share Immanuel is illustrated with flowers, thorns and personal examples that guide you through the three simple stages of an Immanuel healing experience. You learn the best way to prepare, interact with God for healing and then retrain how your mind thinks. Most prayer ministry training teaches only the interaction with God and little if any about the best ways to prepare. As far as we know, Share Immanuel is the only guide that includes how to retrain your mind to apply the healing to your life.

The Soulcry poetry is an intimate expression of the deep longings and cries of the soul, and response from a God who hears and cares.
The author is a Christian therapist who has walked her own healing journey from ritual abuse. The book series speaks of various types of pain, such as betrayal, denial, abandonment, dissociation, sexual abuse, ritual abuse, suffering, generational iniquities, as well as hope, love, healing, worth and more.
by Eve N. Adams
Come with Eve as she travels through the 54 years of her life, a life of sadness and pain as well as great victory and joy. Clearly what the devil meant for evil God turned into good. There is nothing quite like experience to make us doubt and reject God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit. There is nothing quite like experience to prove the truth of God's word. Climbing the mountain of obstacles to reach the destination of faith is exhausting, frightening, maddening at times, and at the same time exhilarating, powerful and joy producing. None of any of these things were possible in the author's strength. Indeed her journey through hopelessness and helplessness drove her deeper and deeper into her loving Savior's arms.
You may not be able to put this book down once you start it but hang in there and you will feel the thrill of victory of Jesus over the devil in Eve's life. Eve is a mother of three, grandmother of 3 (with two more on the way), wife of the same man for 34 years. She has an Associate's degree in Marketing and a Bachelor of Business Administration, graduating Summa Cum Laude. She has devoted her life to her family and serving God.
by Wanda Viola
Perhaps you have a friend or relative who's been through trauma. Maybe you've been there yourself. Or you may be a counselor, pastor, or prayer minister who is looking for resources for those who are deeply wounded. Wanda Viola wants you to feel comfortable and safe here. She wrote these songs in the midst of her healing from childhood abuse (after 35 years of burying the pain). Maybe you've always remembered one or more bad things that happened to you. Maybe your whole childhood feels like a train wreck. Or maybe you wonder if something bad may have happened because you're having trouble making life work successfully for you or you struggle with addictions you can't seem to conquer. Wanda’s songs offer warmth and comfort to the wounded.
If you want to know more about the songs, you'll find the lyrics in the CD section. You can also find the chords and lead sheets. You can also play a selection of each song. You’ll be able to read the words and hear part of the song before you purchase it.
