Abuse and Domestic Violence are the least talked about, addressed, and provided with resources pandemic in the Christian church today.
The cost of intimate partner violence exceeds $8.3 billion per year. Medical costs, physical and mental, make up for 70% of the total.
Between 21-60% of victims of abuse lose their jobs due to reasons stemming from the abuse. 73% of them are harassed at work.

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 from your husband.
- Discouraged because you believe you have no options in your abusive marriage that won’t disappoint God.
“I know first-hand how exhausting and difficult it is to wake up facing these realities because I spent thirteen years in an abusive Christian 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 God’s truth. My journey of healing prepared me to be a champion for abused women and to develop a healing path centered in Christ’s grace.
My life’s story is proof you are not forgotten or alone. You can be healed from the fear, helplessness, and pain of abuse through God’s transforming grace. You can live in God’s design of love and marriage—safe, secure, and loved.”

I didn’t realize when I was asking God my questions from my heart; I was praying. Once I starting speaking my prayers out loud, I felt like I was finally being real with Jesus. I wanted him to know my pain, anger, fear, and confusion. I needed to be real and not pretend with him like I did with other people in my life.read more
