Domestic violence is serious. Unfortunately people who are being abused either minimize the reality of abuse or ignore it all together. In this video we attempt to lift up a domestic violence survivor’s inherent worth and offer suggestions on what to do if you are in an abusive relationship. If you see yourself in this situation…GET HELP. If you know someone or have an inkling that someone is dealing with this issue please forward them this video. Nobody is being helped if we all stay silent.
This video was prompted by a letter we received from a young lady who is in an abusive situation and is blaming herself for the abuse. Our prayer is that she receives what we have to say. For all those who watch this and realize these words apply to you too—nothing happens on accident. Our belief is that you are watching this right now for a reason. Get out! Get out! Get out!
If you find yourself in a situation where Domestic Violence is occurring—get help. Reach out. You can start by calling the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
