Should I Stay or Leave?

I never tell people what they should or shouldn’t do. That’s not my job. (Nor is it the job of anyone else in your life.) Instead, I empower Christian women to be the amazing adults God made them to be and make their own decisions for their own lives.

I hold space for Christian women to learn, grow, and discover their wings in their own time. There is never any pressure to be anywhere other than where you are today.

Let’s set aside fear and shame and manipulation and drop into love and acceptance and freedom. This is a safe space where you can explore your options and possibilities.

There are risks, responsibilities, and rewards whether you stay or leave. I will show you what all of that looks like, and then I will help you get clear and strong in your identity so you can make the right decision (at the right time) for you.

Seven Steps to Getting Out of Your Emotionally Abusive Marriage So You Can Find Hope and Healing

Emotional abuse is a covert, dehumanizing, psychological and spiritual re-framing of reality that causes deep damage to the core of a person. Survivors of emotional abuse often struggle with depression, complex-post-traumatic-stress-disorder, muscular pain, vascular problems, brain fog, sleep disorders, and more. As long as you continue to live in the poisonous atmosphere of covert emotional abuse, you may wrestle with the ability to breathe the clean air of Truth and find the freedom and joy of living as the person God created you to be. Here are seven steps to getting out of your emotionally abusive marriage so you can find hope and healing.I have personal experience walking through this process of healing, and looking back, I think it’s much like going from a caterpillar to a butterfly. So let’s take that analogy and look at each part of this process briefly, and you decide which phase you think you might be in. Please keep in mind that these phases may overlap a little or a lot depending on different factors.

Reviews by Podcast Listeners

Thank you for your podcasts and interviews and for everything that is in your heart that drives you to communicate all that God is doing and has done in you! Your heart and your communications have been an important link between God and my own healing. I am definitely flying free now and looking forward to even higher flights. THANK YOU!!!

I came across this podcast and Natalie’s website while looking for Scriptural resources on whether it was okay to have boundaries with verbally abusive family members who seem to blame me more and more for every enforced boundary… Little did I know, the Lord had it in mind to reveal just how many (so many!) women in the church have gone through the same horrific divorce story that I survived. This podcast has been such a source of healing and support that I never thought possible, and I thank God for giving Natalie the courage to speak for so many of us who have been silenced by shame.

I just wanted to take the time to say that your podcast and the resources you provide were part of what helped make me strong enough to get out of my destructive marriage. I’ve listened to Every.Single.Podcast! And recommended them to a friend after she reached out to share with me about her own emotionally destructive marriage. She texted me yesterday to say she ordered your book a few weeks ago and that the Flying Free podcasts are her life. They are bringing validation and clarity and she is very thankful. Your work is important and necessary. It’s helping women know the truth. I just wanted to say thank you! Your working is changing and saving lives.

I just found your podcasts last week and have been listening whenever I can. Have listened to the first 31 podcasts in the past week! I am blown away with your knowledge and perspective. I was married for 41 years and a pastor’s wife for 24 of those years. The emotional and spiritual abuse has taken its toll on me. Thankfully I ESCAPED! My healing journey is just beginning and my eyes are being opened to a new and free life in Christ! Thank you for your steadfast commitment to speak the truth!

I don’t even have words for how thankful I am for finding this podcast and then reading Natalie’s book. I couldn’t find anyone that understood what I was going through until I stumbled across her book on Amazon and then started listening to her podcast and reading her blog. Her experience and her advice will change your life!! Thank you God for Natalie speaking out and helping others who deal with emotional abuse in their marriage.
