Our goal is that women and young ladies around the world will one day have a copy. We already have a connection of someone who is willing to translate the book in their country. We pray
that the book will help others who are suffering and need help.
Sharing your story, will help others to understand what they are going through, and that it is not something that they are doing alone. That there are many suffering. They may not personally be in a DV relationship, but may know someone who is and can guide them to safety or direct them to help. This secret about domestic violence is a big secret, that many share and it has to be talked about.
Will YOU help us??
The women may be embarrassed, scared, or maybe they don't even realize that they are in an abusive relationship. They believe their love for their abuser, will make them change. Maybe they have been told that they are not worth anything, and that no one will ever love them, over and over. So this is the best they have. So, why try and leave. He may have also said, he will kill you if you do leave or he would take the kids and you would never see them again.
Help them, please. Share your story. I know there are many of you reading this and saying, I don't
want to remember that time in my life. To painful, or I am embarrassed that I even was in that
relationship. Or maybe you are still in a DV relationship and you ask yourself, how can I help?
If you are in danger or need some answers, please call 1-800-799-7233 (safe) National Domestic Violence Hotline. Make sure you call it on a safe telephone. Maybe a friends cell phone or from work.
By you sharing your story, you will help someone, and we then pray that they seek outside
help, and find safety.
PLEASE.... can you share your story. If you do, please change the names of people and locations
for safety for you and/or your children.
Please email your stories to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Share what your relationship was like before the abuse started, during and after.
What signs you saw, but ignored. But, you see now that they were red flags. Maybe the abuse didn't start till years later. Tell us when it first started. How it progressed. How you changed too. Maybe your details will help wake someone from the deepest part of her life, that she is hiding in.
Explain the details of the abuse. Was it physical, verbal, mental, emotional or/and spiritual?
Was it all or one type?
Explain, how you left. What you did to prepare yourself? When did you realize you were
in an abusive relationship?
Remember, the details will help those who are questioning their new relationship or their long term relationship.
If you have any questions, please don't hesistate to ask us. We want to thank you for your stories,
your prayers, and your blessings.
God knows and is right there by your side.
