Best advice to break the chains of domestic violence that keeps us captive.
Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. This seems counter intuitive after the first step where we reclaim our power through leaving.

I’m back! I’ve decided that it’s time to come back to the blog. I posted last week because I was moved, once again, by images of human trafficking. I’ve decided to look around the world and pull some resources on all sorts of recovery-related things all in one place. In my last post, I said... Continue Reading →
It’s been about 6 weeks since I’ve posted anything. But here I am, back again. Trying to shine some light in the darkness. Speaking of darkness… This morning I woke up at 6:40am to go for a long walk. About a month ago I signed up to walk with the A21 Freedom Campaign in Fayetteville,... Continue Reading →

I know that halfway through the year, we can review and see that we’ve made some mistakes, gotten off track, or even abandoned those resolutions from January. Around here, we don’t judge any of that. Just start where... Continue Reading →
Hey there friend! Today I want to offer you a prayer song for encouragement wherever you are today. Check out the prior post here. This song appeared in my YouTube feed in 2019, after I started a job that I thought was going to be good, and quickly found out it wasn’t. I stayed for... Continue Reading →
Today I’m continuing with another word of encouragement for you. This month, I want to spend all my time encouraging you. You can read the prior post here. In my pursuit of the Good Life, I want to look at being positive this month with you. “Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this... Continue Reading →
Hey everyone! It has been a busy couple of weeks for me at home. We’ve packed up half our house, painted everything, and did two days of showings. We got our house under contract and we’re gearing up to move! It’s all super exciting but it’s also a lot of work. In the last few... Continue Reading →
