You Can Overcome Abuse and Domestic Violence
Can We Talk About What You Face Every Day?
- Afraid of what mood your husband will be in and tired of the anxiety tying knots in your stomach?
- Depressed by the degrading words, emotional abandonment, isolation, physical pain, and distorted love?
- Discouraged because you believe you have no options in your abusive marriage that won’t disappoint God or others?
“I know first-hand how exhausting and difficult it is to wake up facing these realities because I spent thirteen years in an abusive marriage. Every day I tried to fix myself, so my husband would love me, in an attempt to save my marriage, and to prevent disappointing God as a wife.
I assumed my husband’s demands, expectations, and actions were God’s intention for my marriage because I believed my painful past experiences and messages instead of searching for truth. My journey of healing prepared me to be a champion for abused women and to develop a healing path centered in grace.
My life’s story is proof you are not forgotten or alone. You can be freed from your fear, empowered through your helplessness, and healed from your pain of abuse through God’s transforming grace. You can live in God’s design of love and marriage—safe, secure, and loved.”

I spent thirteen years in an abusive marriage to a “Christian” man because I believed if I separated from him or divorced him, God would be mad at me and not forgive me. I was in the same place many of you are right now—confused, and uncertain.read more
Many Christians take the stand that the woman shouldn’t work. However, in this day and age, it often takes both the husband and wife to work to live above the poverty level. I look at the verses in Proverbs 31. God’s word describes the wife with activities including purchasing materials, buying property, planting vineyards, doing business which includes managing people, and also taking care of her family. Women must be prepared to become the sole provider due to unexpected death, abandonment, or divorce. To ensure you are prepared to be the sole provider, you’ll need to figure out what you like to do and what skills you need to learn to build a career.read more
