FIVE POINT FIVE YEARS ago I added another distinction to my title... Survivor.
As incredibly difficult as it was to live in domestic violence for 11 years, those years helped shape me in to the person I am today. Because I was beat up, I now deeply understand the healing of a loving touch. Because I was told I am worthless, I now consistently strive to find my value in the person God tells me I am. Because I was constantly manipulated, I now choose to be straight-forward and honest. Because I was told I would never be anything, I chose to prove to myself I could, and I now have a career and job I love.
"Even though you intended to harm me, God intended it only for good..." Genesis 50:20.
And, the good continues.
