Hi friends, although it happens everyday in the United States, October is the month that is set aside to help make people more aware of domestic violence. I know all too well the pain and heartache that comes with not only being abused but losing my precious son at the hands of an abuser.
Domestic violence is one of the leading causes of death in women in the United States; and I fully believe that its because there is not nearly enough education nor enough people who are willing to step up and share their stories. I totally understand, especially if the abuser is still in any way a part of your life. Most of the time there are children involved, custody issues, and sometimes even threats of violence to other family members. The fact is if we as victims don't step up and share our stories, then this cycle of abuse will continue to get worse.
Today I want to encourage you to take a stand, be bold and let's stop these abusers from having control over our lives. The Bible says we are more than conquerors through the blood of Jesus Christ and there is nothing that we cannot do without his strength. You are somebody, your life matters, and you can be the key to freedom for other women who are being abused.
Contact me if you have a story about abuse you would like to share and let's put an end to this horrible crime that is destroying women and children all over America.
