Somebody You Know…

Hey there dears!!  As some of you may know, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  To kick the month off, I created a video that was therapeutic for me and hopefully inspiring and/or empowering for you all.  Thanks for being so awesome!!

Do you know someone that is in or has experienced a domestic violence situation?  This is a great source in the right direction for getting the help they need.

P.S. For the month of october, 15% of all purchases from my shop, Clutched & Covered, will be donated to AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Violence)!

  • You are such a beautiful and strong person for posting this. I literally teared up because just from this blog, and twitter you seem like you are the kindest person ever, you have a good strong head on your shoulders. I’m so sorry that this happened to you, and sometimes I don’t believe that things happen for a reason. I don’t want to say that because I really want to say I’m sure this has made you a stronger women but I will never understand a lesson being learned that has such an extreme process and such an extreme situation. I really wish I could give you a big ole hug from right here. At the end of the day I’m sure this is helping so many women and young girls who find themselves in this situation. i really hope that this gets to one of those young ladies and that they know you came out okay, and even better!!

  • i remember this day. I remember you calling you. I remember crying because I couldnt do anything in that very moment. You know I have personally experienced it myself. 7 years later I am in a way better done. I experienced everything you are feeling. I know at this very moment my pain has turned into beauty. I wouldnt say I am friends with my ex that did it but I have completely forgiven him and I talk to him here and there.

    I guess thats the beauty of God. I am really sorry that you had to experience it but sharing your story does so much for people. It reminds everyday I survived. You survived and you are telling your story. Letting it be know its not okay.

    Love you dearly

  • You are just so strong and I thank God for you not being in the same space as you were a year ago! It took a lot of courage to make this video and I pray that it gives someone else the same courage. The song “Fire” comes to my head by Mali Music. I recently heard it on Sunday Best and I remember the feeling it of the song. It has so much strength that when you hear it, all of those things that hurt you and try to come against you seem almost incomparable to your own inner strength. So if you have a minute and can find the song or clip on youtube, you should listen to it. There is no band-aid like Jesus. I pray that in time he will heal your shoulder.

  • I wish I could hug you after watching this. You are so brave for making this video and sharing your pain. It’s terrifying that so many women experience domestic violence, and your words are so healing and so true. You should be very proud of the way you’re handling this. You’ve come a long way and it’s a huge deal that you’re able to share in this way. You’re amazing.
