“The dynamics of an abusive situation can vary miles long. Maybe you watched your mom get abused or you may even think abuse is normal. You may even like being abused or maybe you accept abuse because you believe you can make someone love you. Talking down to an abused person will not open their eyes. You’re just doing the same thing their abuser does. Sometimes a woman doesn’t know where she even lost herself! She just knows she found herself in an abusive situation. An abuser generally won’t just leave. They’ll call you out of your name, tell you, you can’t cook, attend church with you, criticized you from sun up to sun down but will not just leave. Also, most people will have high respect for an abuser while the abused stand idly by smiling and knowing the truth but … won’t say anything. It’s not ok. I appreciate Monica L DeBro for her vision and mission to help the abused.” Casey Perry
If you’ve experienced hurt, rejection, pain or anything that keeps you hostage to your past, you’re not alone. Women and men are having difficulty healing from pain, rejection, brokenness, untruths, loss, and other life events. There is help. There is hope. In my book, Broken Believer No More, I share my journey from brokenness to accepting God’s love for me, embracing forgiveness, and being completely open to healing. As a result of reading this book, you will understand the journey of healing and forgiving others as well as forgiving yourself. We are all worthy of living without the dramas from our past holding us in bondage.
“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Isaiah 40:29

God had a different plan and I’m thankful every day that He saved me from me! If you are feeling hopeless and if things won’t get better, I’m here today to reassure you that it will get better. My darkest days have become my best testimony.
Slapped! Kicked! Punched! Dragged across the floor! Stabbed! Beaten with a fist! Beaten with a whip! Beaten because something happened at his work that had nothing to do with me! Beaten because he lost a card game that had nothing to do with me! Beaten because his lover made him mad and it had nothing to do with me! Wait! I’m being beaten by a man who was loving at the beginning of our relationship. I’m being beaten because of other things happening in his life. I’m being beaten because he needs to take his anger out on someone, but why? Why was he beating me all of a sudden? Something changed! What happened? Did I miss something? Were there red flags? I don’t think so. I never saw the first punch coming and I never imagined this significant life change at age 18.[Read more…]
