Purpose In The Pain

I’ve done a couple of interviews recently about my story, and a quote from my first book kept coming up in some way or another, either by the interviewer or myself. I figured there must be a reason for this – and I have been working on being more mindful of those moments that catch Read more about Purpose In The Pain[…]

Confession Brings Freedom

My overarching message when I speak is wrapped around confession and forgiveness bringing freedom. When I finally came to the life-changing moment of self-forgiveness, every single thing about my life changed. @@I believe the hardest person to forgive is yourself.@@ So coming face-to-face with my life’s ugly-reel playing before my eyes was scary, yet surprisingly Read more about Confession Brings Freedom[…]

Victim Or Survivor?

Recently, after sharing my story with a small group of ladies one of them asked me, “Do you ever want to erase all the bad memories from your mind?” Without hesitation I answered… No. I’ve never once wanted to forget all the things I have gone through. Even the super-duper tough and ugly stuff, the moments Read more about Victim Or Survivor?[…]

Dear Nicki Minaj…

“I thought I was going to die. . . It was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. . .

And the fact that I have not seen many Read more about Dear Nicki Minaj…[…]

Radio interviews are a challenge for me in that I am the only one talking after a Read more about I Had A Chance To Introduce Myself[…]

We’re talking about porn addiction, sexual addictions, alcohol addiction… the things that aren’t seen with the eye, but they still exist. I got Read more about Super-Hero Courage[…]

The Heart Of The Matter

Gonna get right to it. Your heart may be dependent on the life of your mother, or even a machine to keep you alive… your heart matters. I am at the point where I find it silly to have to qualify the worth of a beating heart. Have we really come to this? Shame. I Read more about The Heart Of The Matter[…]

Staying The Course

I have to be honest here – because I don’t do well if I’m not being honest. And even when it’s not easy, I still have to be. Last week I shared a lot of how I feel about helping women make other decisions besides abortion. And I will get right to the purpose of Read more about Staying The Course[…]

When Love Is Scary

I would like to speak to two groups of people. The abused/once abused and the never abused. To the never abused. To the one who has never been beaten to the point of bleeding. To the one who has always known the love of a loving father. To the one who was always encouraged as Read more about When Love Is Scary[…]
