Because of my childhood, I have spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about all the things I would never do as a parent, all the ways I would be better. I had a determination to create the home life for my child that I wished I had growing up. But by the time IContinue reading “Dear Mama”
A dive into despair – that’s hell on earth. I can feel the water getting higher around my heart. My soul becomes an echo of pain. There is no escape. The only way through it is to feel it, see it, motivate it to carry on and get away from me. Despair by definition isContinue reading “When Hell Calls”
I don’t live my life by winning or losing but by justice and grace. In that end, do you think that violent people – you know, the strong ones who overpower the weak, win in the end? Oh, that’s right. This blog is about childhood sexual abuse (CSA) and incest. Not the violent. Wait –Continue reading “Do the Violent Win?”
