This is for:

Learn what steps you can take to protect your ministries, schools and workplaces from inappropriate sexual behavior and to help someone that has been sexually abused.
Hi, my name is Reema.
At the age of 22, I was raped by my pastor.
That traumatizing experience shaped the next 25 years of my life as I struggled to find self worth, purpose and trust, specifically within the church again.
But God is an amazing God who can create beauty, from what we believe is worthlessness.
By His grace, today I share my story and teach leaders of any organization how to protect themselves and their members from inappropriate and dangerous sexual behavior..
My seminars teach you:
How to identify inappropriate behavior
How to protect yourself and your members from unhealthy sexual situations
How you can minister or address these issues more effectively as a leader
What necessary and healthy boundaries should be in place
How to put accountability and support in place for your leaders
How to empower victims within your establishments bringing forth unity and healing
There are too many people hurting and too many more that could get hurt if we don’t start taking a stand on this topic.
We need to speak openly and work proactively to keep our churches, schools and places of work safe.
Despite the seriousness of the topic, it is important to me that my seminars are engaging, personable and even humorous at times! My mission is to make people comfortable about this topic so together, we can start creating change.

…Her courage to be so vulnerable about an experience that was so deeply personal
was amazing to me. As I sat in the quiet auditorium filled with people, I was thankful that
she was brave enough to share, that she was brave enough to not be silent anymore
…Through Reema’s testimony our pastors were able to understand the deep long lasting results of sexual abuse on a victim that take years, if not a lifetime to heal….Reema’s presentations gave us the opportunity to implement greater safeguards and policies to protect our students and church members in our Conference and throughout our sister Conference in Canada. I highly recommend that you invite Reema to your next presentation on abuse.
Reema speaks from a real place. She shares her brokenness in a way that invites others to look at their brokenness…Reema helped me acknowledge and deal with my own abuse at a time that was crucial for me. Yes abuse happens in the church in our schools in our homes. Speaking this truth opens the heart to God for spiritual healing.
…Reema’s story is compelling, horrible, and miraculous all at the same time…She is authentic, down to earth, and very approachable. A teacher by profession, she has a way of using her story to educate and give hope. She is healing, slowly, and willing to take you on her journey.
