WELCOME!

If you’re familiar with my background, you might think this is the website of a lawyer.  But I was a writer long before I ever became a lawyer.

Before that, I was for years a victim of child molestation.  That fact doesn’t define me.  It’s just the springboard I’ve used to propel myself forward.

And that really is my point.  We are, all of us, more than our labels, more than our circumstances, more than the pain we may have endured.

This website is a way for me to make that point, to comment on abuse-related issues, and to share my faith.

I hope you’ll join me…and find your own voice.

  2. Beautiful! We are more than our labels! ❤️🙏🏻
    I used your line in Isolation and God “While the Crucifixion is humanity’s ultimate ‘No!’ to God, the Resurrection is God’s eternal ‘Yes!’ to us.” And cited your blog site as the source and your article too. I am sharing it in my facebook page Life Hub. Blessings!

  3. “It has been said that if child abuse and neglect were to disappear today, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual would shrink to the size of a pamphlet in two generations, and the prisons would empty. Or, as Bernie Siegel, MD, puts it, quite simply, after half a century of practicing medicine, ‘I have become convinced that our number-one public health problem is our childhood’.” (pg.228)

    Allowed to continue unhindered, such abuse will cause the child’s brain to improperly develop; and if allowed to continue, it’s the helpless infant’s starting point towards a childhood, adolescence and (in particular) adulthood in which its brain uncontrollably releases potentially damaging levels of inflammation-promoting stress hormones and chemicals, even in non-stressful daily routines.

    A psychologically sound as well as a physically healthy future should be all children’s foremost right—especially considering the very troubled world into which they never asked to enter.
