A most simple question.

Back in early 2016 when my daughter asked me on that ugly, grey day, “Mom, are you afraid of him?” I paused at her sincerity. I even questioned the pause hanging in the heavy air hoping, waiting for someone else to answer for me. To admit it, would bring shame. Honesty. Fear. It was the one question that began to change my life. Solemnly the words we both didn’t want to hear released themselves into the pause, “Yes. I believe I am.”

May 21, 2018, I created a nonprofit organization called VictoryLife House for survivors of Domestic Violence. We were in partnership with a local church when Covid hit in 2020, and the building we were going to be able to use became unavailable. January 2022, I sadly decided to end the nonprofit designation and turn VLH instead into my own personal volunteer effort to remain as a creative tool for those who are seeking help for their “now what?” questions after leaving their trauma. Here is a link to the farewell letter of my nonprofit I wrote to our supporters – and yet…it’s not really goodbye 🙂

I pray my posts inform you, move you to action either for yourself or others, and that they are a blessing in your life. Peace. Always. MJ

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24

Don’t say anything that would hurt another person. Instead, speak only what is good so that you can give help wherever it is needed. That way, what you say will help those who hear you.

Ephesians 4:29

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 18:21

Hi! I’m MJ! And I’m a survivor of Domestic Violence. This blog, yes, is for other survivors of Domestic Abuse. However, sometimes I like to write about other learning curve events or thoughts in my life.

Through VictoryLife House, survivors can find information to help them through the trauma they’ve experienced. Through this blog, I hope you also enjoy other random types of musings.

Life without abuse IS an option. Choose life!
