The Oasis Bible Study is a 21-week faith-based curriculum with the purpose of giving hope and healing to women who are currently in or have been in domestically abusive relationships. The truth about abuse is taught along with God’s Word to help these wounded women put the pieces of their life back together on a firm foundation.
The teaching/ discussion model of the Oasis Bible Study allows women to express their struggles and find the validation and compassion they so desperately need. There are many emotional issues to express and work through as a result of abuse ranging from dishonor and injustice to fear and trauma. After many years of being torn down by their abuser, God’s Word is used to build them back up. It is a journey of healing from the desolate places in the desert abuse to the oasis where streams of the living water of God’s truths can be found.
