Most parents and schools teach our children about good touches and bad touches; not to talk to strangers, and never to keep secrets. Maximizing God’s Woman holds seminars and training because constant supervision and vigilance by adults is essential for prevention and to break the generational cycle in some instances.
Maximizing God’s Woman uses the Darkness to Light “Stewards of Children” curriculum, a prevention program for adults shown to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change behavior of adults by empowering them to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
The “Stewards of Children” curriculum is a nationally available program scientifically proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child protective behaviors. This revolutionary program is for any responsible adult or youth-serving organization who is concerned about the welfare of children.
In the training you’ll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families, and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents, themselves.

- The types of situations in which child sexual abuse might occur
- Simple, effective strategies for protecting children from sexual abuse
