Between the ages of 8 and 13, I was molested 5 times. At 13 I found out the father I knew was not my biological father. Feeling rejected and abandoned I began a quest of looking for love in all the wrong places and found myself in a series of unhealthy relationships. Surrounded by poverty and a drug infested neighborhood, I also watched my mother being beaten by the same man who was supposed to love and protect me.
When I came to God, I wasn't looking for salvation. I was saved and baptized at 8. I was looking for answers. Why me? Why did all this happen to me? Couldn't you have chosen someone else? How do I let go of the pain? How do I release the anger? How do I get passed the shame? Who can I trust?
Ironically at 8 years old, in an effort to provide me a way to release my feelings, my teacher gave me a journal after she witnessed me being bullied and noticed the change in demeanor. I started writing letters to God, but in a move from another state, I stopped writing. I came to God broken, afraid, confused and full of questions, he took me back to my first love - writing and journaling. Through journaling I fought my way back, learned to trust and love again, learned to forgive and how to release the anger. This program is to teach you how to do the same!
