Survivor of domestic abuse
I am four weeks away from my own divorce. I had a husband who was violent, verbally abusive and dangerous – and he still sends me regular emails saying I am in sin for not reconciling (though he still thinks hitting is justified). I now go to a church that is great, but our church was terrible – telling me to not tell anyone and pretend it never happened. Your list [on the website] of reasons why people don’t leave is powerful. I am going to write about it and link to your PDF for one of my clients.
