Endless Hope!

I believe steps toward recovery from domestic violence must include the elements:

  • Have faith in God. Believe for a better life!
  • Be thankful for everything while you build a restored life.

2nd Anniversary of Freedom!

We can celebrate together the two-year anniversary of freedom for Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus, and Michelle Knight. You may recall they had been held captive for a decade in Cleveland, Ohio. Celebrations for these brave women include a fundraiser by the Metro Health Foundation.

Don’t dwell on the past – move on!

I love Ms. Knight’s message of hope, urging us not to dwell on the past. Unless a person has suffered tremendously in their own past, such as Ms. Knight has, a person who is now suffering may not believe in it. She brings authenticity to the message.

And it’s so true – for any of us to recover from the ugly past, we must be willing to set our hearts and minds on the present, with hope for a happy future. At first it may be a daily struggle to remove ourselves from memories – reliving – the past, but the hard work it requires is well worth the rewards.

“My Dear Rosa Jean” by Carin Jayne Casey is a tool toward recovery as the main character, Rosa Jean describes her struggles and accomplishments while she courageously steps through her journey from a life filled with child abuse and domestic violence toward the happy, fulfilling life she was meant to have.
