Diana WinklerDomestic Violence, Episodes, Health, shame

Come and meet Ashley, a mother of 3 special needs boys, and a survivor of domestic abuse. She begins her story with her traumatic childhood and rebellious teenage years. She talks about how she met her husband and the progression of abuse over the years. She describes how the book, The Love Dare, played a part in her meeting the Lord. After suffering a debilitating childbirth experience, her eyes were opened to the reality of her abusive marriage, and planned her escape with her 3 children. In this brutally honest and riveting story, Ashley shares her relationship with God, how she began the healing process, and gives advice to others who are going through abuse right now. Join with us on Ashley’s journey and be blessed.
