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.”

Some of you have never grown out of the emotional reactionary demand for what we desire, want, or need, especially if people have always given into you. You may think you have control over others but in the end, you are an emotional mess. The truth is, your emotions have made a slave of you. The good news is, you can learn a new empowering mindset and behavior to free yourself from using your out-of-control emotional reactions.read more
