Why You Need the STS Leader Training:

The STS Leader Training is an easy to follow training process designed for individual use with either Surrendering the Secret Bible Study or A Surrendered Life chapter book interchangeably. Author Pat Layton teaches the training (the exact material used in her face-to face training events) and follows chapter by chapter through each the 8 Healing Steps used in both resources. This is an excellent training resource for independent post abortion recovery leaders, pregnancy resource center volunteers and staff; church ministry leaders and Christian Counselors and Coaches. This training will equip attendees to fully understand the STS healing process and includes tools for engaging the church; reaching women and men who need help and step by step tips on how to get your ministry started.


The STS Training, taught by Author Pat Layton, helps potential ministry leaders fully understand the post abortion healing process and takes Leaders step by step and page by page through the STS Leader Guide available at Lifeway Christian Resources. 

  • The training teaches the truth about abortion using facts and data from reputable sources.
  • You will learn how to engage the Church in the post abortion healing ministry.
  • You will learn how to engage the Community in post abortion healing.

About Surrendering the Secret: STS is an 8-week Post-Abortion Recovery Bible Study. Surrendering the Secret can help hurting women find the path to healing through honest, interactive Bible Study; meaningful group experiences; unique journaling exercises; and confidential, caring community.

Many women who have experienced abortion hide the secret deep in their hearts and suffer in silence. Surrendering the Secret enables women to release this burden and find freedom. This powerful, redemptive study helps each hurting woman find her personal path to healing from the abortions in her past.
