I was abused as a child from 4-15 and a half years old and many times found strentgh to live my life every day by believing that God was going to help me and that he would hear my cries everyday although I couldn't see him and I would read the Bible on when I was allowed. I didn't understand everything and eventually was placed in a different home. However, I didn't have goodcommunication skills and just assumed I didn't need them with Christ because he was all that I needed. As I got older I married into an abusive relationship that I was unaware of and encountered more abuse. Within the marriage I had children and learned how to communicate because of them, eventually went to the library and on line to get some communication training, read books on self-help, and allowed others to teach me how important it was to know people and work with them although Christ is in your heart because God is a God of love. Although my relationship with my husband didn't stop I learned that I was better than that, my children and I began to encourage each other with praying for one another and others who was in our same situation. We eventually got out of the situation that we were in. The reason we started Encouragement "Blossoms" In The Trauma, Inc. is becausewe've found that there are many adults who were abused as a child and find themselves in a domestic violence situation and homeless running from place to place and may be to overwhelmed to encourage themselves. So, we would like to encourage these past childhood victims of abuse, homeless people, familes in domestic violence situations by rendering encouraging phone calls to them on a weekly basis, for 3 months, sending and preparing encouraging poetry on cards, preparing small arts and crafts baskets, books, music of healing, and poetry free of charge to anyone who would like to receive this wonderful, peace of mind service. You may call 1-866-524-4828 or e-mail [email protected] It is a known fact that when you encourage someone when they are going through a traumatic crisis or call in to check on them, they tend not to have as much depression as they would have had and deal with their trauma better knowing they have a comforter to guide them by listening and encouraging them.
