WELCOME ALL, LEARN MORE ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 

“Domestic violence is a problem that affects all cultures, religions, social, and economic backgrounds. It doesn’t discriminate against any community, type of relationship, or race. Domestic violence is about taking control and having power over the victim’s mind and body, ultimately devouring that individual to the point of utter submission through various tactics of demoralization.

Every relationship is very different—but the tactics remain the same”.

 As a survivor of Domestic Violence, my goal is to help others see the “Red Flags of Domestic Violence” (referred to as “Red Flags”) before entering into a potentially serious and dangerous relationship. My purpose in writing this book is to inspire victims of Domestic Violence by showing them that they have the power within to overcome the abuse. A secondary goal is to show victims that there is a purpose for living where they can experience a much more rewarding life beyond the torturous nightmares of a violent relationship.

HOW THIS BOOK CAME TO LIFE

The development of this book brought back many of my own memories from my first marriage. The emotional, verbal and physical abuse I endured often caused me to be fearful and have self-doubt of who I was and who I could become. Looking back at what I went through and seeing the woman I am today gives me the strength to tell my story. I was able to end the abuse through my faith in God, the support of my family, a burning desire to pursue my passion, and a determination to free myself from the abuse, and knowing I had a purpose in this world.

“Taking off the blinders…” is a term I like to reference as well. All too often we become consumed with our needs, wants/desires, and the society we live in, that we overlook what should be obvious about a person. Initially, when we meet someone they put their best foot forward, which can blind us from seeing who that person really is. We must be willing to take off our blinders—or accept the obvious “Red Flags” in front of us—and this takes discipline.

and minds to seek God first and allow Him to direct our paths. One should research the individuals they become involved with. This takes not only discipline, but a mindset to find out who a person is before we put our lives into their hands. I have made it a point in my life to seek God first and inquire with Him before I enter into any relationship. No one is really capable of knowing the heart or purpose of another person; however, if we seek God, who has created all, He will show us things we may have never discovered on our own.

This book is not intended to persuade anyone’s belief or non-belief—it is to share the experiences of others and myself who have overcome Domestic Violence through faith. This book is also not intended to bash either gender, but to offer encouragement, healing, safety plans, education, and support.

THE UNDERLINING SIGNS & HOW TO PREVENT THEM  

Signs can also include abusing children, seeking quick commitments, and being possessive, threatening or harassing. There’s also extreme ridiculing, jealousy and possessiveness, criticizing, rape or undesired sexual acts, lying, stalking—anything relating to these unhealthy traits should be a warning sign.
