Leaving Town!

There really is no such thing as failure… Rather, we are taking steps forward and gathering experience that will help us achieve our goals and dreams in the future.

A guide to help victims become survivors. Can anyone else relate to this? “I don’t want to be a victim OR a survivor! I want to live an alternate reality. I don’t want this to be my reality and I spend a lot of energy trying to avoid it. I do pretty good until something […]

Break Free!

A guide to help victims become survivors. We’ll try to answer the questions that have come in one at a time. I pray this stirs much discussion which others find useful and encouraging!
