On the fourth episode in the “Greater Purpose” series, Sheila Ruffin shares how she began a whole new life in Christ after healing from childhood trauma.

The pain of losing her father in the Vietnam War, losing her mother to mental illness, and being molested by relatives was almost too much to bear. But when Sheila allowed Jesus to heal her, she discovered her greater purpose in life
