Compassionate Love Radio: Combatting Stigma with Stories
(c)2016 Nancy Virden, Always the Fight Ministry
Show #13 – Domestic Abuse
Play the chant backward and you might hear Jeanette’s tale: baby in the baby carriage, marriage, then unending love from a source she never expected.
Her boyfriend-turned-husband cheated, convinced her to submit to sexual abuse in the name of religion, and nearly took her life. This marriage from hell almost destroyed her. Her confusion was compounded by wrong and ineffective advice from people in and outside of her church. She was not believed. She was blamed, and expected to change her ways to make this dangerous union work.
Listen as the new Jeanette describes a lifetime of abuse, the damage to her soul, and the healing power of God’s Word. You will learn and feel, and perhaps change forever your view of marriage and Christian duty.
