Robin,As a counselor, I'm not really sure there is anything that could be called minor abuse. Abuse hurts deeply into the soul.
But, at least two pastors (one a licensed counselor) told me to basically go home and submit and God would work a "miracle." For a long time, I felt so guilty because I couldn't do that.

So, not only were you abused by this man but also by these pastors/counselors. I'm so glad things have worked out well for you. Unfortunately, for those women who aren't able to leave for one reason or another, things usually get worse. And those that are beaten are 75% more likely to be killed if they try to leave than those who stay. Thank God He directed your path. I've found over the years that my deepest feelings of guilt came from man's teachings about God and not God's.Sandy
Proper consideration of what abuse is, how it functions and how to deal with it needs to get out to the Christian community.
