Though the Hephzibah House in Winona Lake, Indiana offered parents and pastors a safe and protected Christian environment for their "troubled girls," no one dreamed of the abuse that went on behind its closed doors.  Though operated by a single independent church in the International Fundamental Baptist network of churches, many affiliated families and churches throughout the country sent their daugthers to Hephzibah House for spiritual healing.  The girls found only cruelty and abuse within its walls, justified by and carried out in the name of Christianity.

Jocelyn and Cindy gladly welcome Susan to the program, a former resident of Hephzibah House, for a discussion of what life was like there and the problems that young women face after they leave.  Join them to hear a message of understanding and hope.
