To Women Struggling to Get Back Up After Separation/Divorce



To Women Struggling to Get Back Up,
It seems that a story always has more impact when it comes from the lips of someone that has lived it. Divorce is a struggle for some, knowing that there is a light on the other end and that there is hope may be all you need to make it. I have struggled through divorce and now I have a passion within me to help those that are working through the same difficulties that I experienced.

Personal growth and healing are difficult, there is no denying that, but when it comes to finding your path to healing there are many that are ready and willing to help.

Divorce is not something that one can simply get over or get past in an afternoon, it takes dedication, devotion, and often help from places you never even knew existed.

Sometimes having someone simply sit with you, no words exchanged, is enough to give you the strength to take one more step.

It is my hope and sincere desire that women that have hit rock bottom, those that may have contemplated ending their own lives, those women that feel there is no way out, can find a way to healing despite these lows.

I started Divorce Recovery Advocates for Women (Draw4Women), as an effort to help women  like myself find their selves, find their purpose, and find their path to personal forgiveness of self and healing.

It is my sincere mission within this organization to try to address these issues, to address things like depression, contemplating suicide, financial distress, how to get your life back on track, and so much more.

My hope is that through a personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ those that feel like they will never be whole again can find their center and move past the pain and feelings of desertion that comes with divorce.

Though divorce is more common now than ever before, there are very few organizations that have been put in place to help women recover from the truly destructive force that it can be.

Divorce is not something that anyone should ever have to struggle through alone and having a helping hand, someone that has been through the struggle, someone that can help ground you may be all you need to get started on your own healing.

Through our organization, I hope to help women find themselves again and foster a relationship with God and Jesus Christ so that they can find the strength to keep pushing and to keep moving forward toward a new, brighter future that is free of the pain of past divorce.

Draw4Women also works to make sure that those in the program can see just how much they have progressed, often seeing just a little bit of progress is enough to make anyone want to keep going.

Through coaching, retreats, workshops, personal outreach and so much more we at Draw for Women hope to help those that have suffered through divorce work through their personal struggle and start to see that they have more value than they could ever know.

I Can't Process My Truth

No, I'm Not Okay 

As a mother watching anyone cry out for their mother as they struggle to breathe does something to you. I remember when my friend called and asked me to watch the video of George Floyd. It was disgusting, inhumane, and sadly not the first video I have seen like it. Yet for for me this video took me to another place mentally.  The fact that this keeps happening and on  top of that it could have been my husband, brothers, or grandson infuriates me. Also knowing this could happen to any woman in my family, including myself, reminded me no one is safe in my family that includes man, woman, or child.  So I tried really hard to distance myself from the media outlets to take time to process this, and to be honest I'm still at a loss and I can't process this. I can handle many things but this I cant and sadly this isn't the first time. It keeps happening over and over again. Sadly, I have had to process other stories like this one for some time now, and I cou…

A Message of Hope for Struggling Marriages

Disclaimer: I have worked with divorcees for many years now. As you read this blog post I want to make it clear that I am in no way speaking about divorces that stem from abuse or any other reason a couple has deemed it necessary to part ways. God placed this blog topic on my heart to share with married couples especially since me and my husband did not recognize some of the strategies of opposition when we first married back in 1999. 
I pray this message blesses  marriages that are struggling from attacks of the enemy. Marriages where couples are tired and weak from fighting together so they are contemplating on calling it quits. I pray this blog blesses your marriage and helps bring back hope if you and your spouse are currently struggling. 
A Message of Hope for Struggling Marriages
As I sat across from my husband it was evident that he had changed and though he smiled at me from across the restaurant table for the first time in over 10 years it was different, we were different.  It w…
