We explain abuse and oppression in the world through stories. What stories are you telling yourself and what do they say about God? Part 2 of 2.
Survivors have to wrestle with justice and oppression when they lose their families, their freedoms, their children, their finances, their homes, and their churches. What kind of God allows wickedness to prevail while victims suffer alone?
Parenting small children in an emotionally destructive home is brutal. How do you help yourself, much less your kids?
What if your desire to avoid hurting anyone is actually the reason you ARE hurting them? What if you’re actually hurting YOURSELF by living out this desire too?
Boundaries don’t hurt others, despite the loud voices that tell you otherwise.

They’re a way of living your truest self and your highest calling, while honoring the personhood of everyone around you.
You’ve been telling him for years how hurtful his behavior is. Literally begging him to stop. It’s like beating your head against a wall. You’ve reached your breaking point. Then he tosses out a question your heart longed to hear from the beginning:
