What women are saying…
“You put into words so easily what I have been agonizing over for years. I thought I was alone, but I realize I am not alone and there is hope for healing! I am so thankful I came and I cannot wait to begin my journey to heal.” – Sexual Trauma Seminar Attendee, Port City Community Church
“If you are lucky enough to be able to go on the Journey to Heal Women’s retreat at Wrightsville Beach, NC, please do so! This was the most beautiful weekend spending time working on your healing with other women. There was plenty of alone time scheduled, too. She has taken being an author and set the bar really high. I don’t know of anyone else writing about such a sensitive topic and having groups and retreats! Journey to Heal has taught me so many important parts of my healing that traditional counseling just did cover!” – Survivor and Journey to Heal Women’s Retreat Attendee
“Crystal is truly a God send! Her inspiring truths about faith and God’s saving grace has led me back to my Father! I have spent years lost in sin and self doubt, and through her bible study I have been able to shed light on the wounds in my heart and have began to mend them. I am so grateful for her dedication to helping others and her ministry!” – Survivor and Journey to Heal Group Study Participant
What event planners and pastors are saying…
“Truly inspiring! We cannot fully express how grateful we are that you shared your story for the Carousel’s benefit, and for the courage it takes each time you share for those who have not yet found their voices! Thank you!” – Amy L. Feath, Executive Director. The Carousel Center. Wilmington, NC.
“Crystal Sutherland is truly an inspiration to us all. She has helped lead many people towards healing from sexual trauma and always points to the hope we have in Christ. We are so grateful for her influence and leadership as we continue to battle the evil in this world, and she reminds us of the words ‘Greater is He who is in you than he who is in this world’. Thanks Crystal!” – Hugo Izzo, Church Pastor of Care. Port City community Church. Wilmington, NC.
“You were amazing! Thank you so much!” – Danielle Biosse, Fundraising Event Coordinator. Owner of The Port City Design Group. Wilmington, NC.

You connected with everyone in such an amazing way by addressing this unspeakable subject of childhood sexual abuse while offering hope in Christ through the testimony of what He has done in your life. Continue to be a voice to those who don’t yet found theirs, and for our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” – Marla Decubellis, Women’s Biblical Counseling and Care Coordinator. Port City Community Church. Wilmington, NC.
