When Lynn, a widow and registered nurse, met her abuser for the first time, she thought he was a safe bet. Who could be safer than a pastor and former missionary?

    Thank you Lynn for sharing your story! Mine is so very similar that I thought about asking you your ex’s name. I have been struggling about whether or not to unblock my ex’s number because of some circumstances that have recently come up. You validated my experience and I will choose not to even open that door to the devil a crack. Thank you, again!
