Hi everyone. I just wanted a moment to touch base with you all. Thank you to all of you for following my journey! My book CULT SURVIVOR is now available on Amazon Kindle.
What is Cult Survivor about?
It’s a look at how we can change what’s wrong in the church as opposed to all the juicy secrets and details of who wronged me and abused me. I still have too much anger, hurt and bitterness to talk about those things but maybe one day there will be a part 2. For now, I wanted to focus on how to make a positive change. It’s part of my own healing.
I’m very disappointed in friends from my 20 something years in church culture who shunned me, abandoned me, and judged me for my life choices and for leaving the church. For being so brainwashed that they can’t see what is real. For labelling me backslidden, crazy, wild, disobedient-without speaking to me or getting my side of the story. For gossiping and spreading lies to justify their own actions. I’m furious that the elders refused my son into the internship program he so wanted to be in because they could not control me. They tried to use my son to manipulate me to come to have a meeting with them. When I refused they said my son couldn’t join.
As much as I hate the church and what it’s done to me, my kids want to stay and I respect their choices. I don’t want them going but I allow them to because they have their own minds. We’ve discussed at length how I feel about it and I’m proud of them whatever they choose.
