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.

    really i enjoying with you by this golden word’s.. with my pleasure

  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.

  4. Yes, we don’t need to identify ourselves by labels. You are you, unique!

  5. Dear Anna,

    Hello! I have just finished reading and commenting on your excellent post entitled “Palm Oil – The High Cost of Beauty”.

    How have you been during your long Easter weekend?

    I have stayed up till very late to complete some new graphics and animations plus more pertinent information for the special Easter post at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2015/04/11/easter-in-modern-multimedia-perspective/

    You are very welcome to enjoy the extended and updated post at your earliest convenience.

    May you find April and the new Springtime very much to your liking and highly conducive to your writing, reading, thinking and blogging about whatever topics that take your intellectual fancy!

    Yours sincerely,

  6. Feeling pleasure to join you🙂

  7. Liebe Anna, Du bist eine wirklich großartige Frau, von denen es mehr geben sollte. Ich freue mich sehr, dass wir auf diese Weise in Kontakt gekommen sind. Ich wünsche Dir alles erdenklich Gute, liebe Grüße Marie

    • Meine liebe Marie, ich bin auch dankbar, dass wir uns getroffen haben. Obwohl ich mich sehr über Ihre gute Meinung zu mir freue, verdiene ich ein solches Lob nicht. Wir alle stehen vor Herausforderungen. Ich schreibe Gott mein Überleben zu. Deine freundin, A.

  8. Meine liebe Anna, Sie verdienen wirklich jedes Lob dafür, was Sie leisten. Da Sie sich einmal für den Kölner Dom interessiert haben, habe ich jetzt viele Fotos zu einem Blogartikel zusammengestellt, damit Sie sich schon einmal ein umfassendes Bild machen können. Ich habe den Beitrag hauptsächlich Ihretwegen geschrieben:
    Deine Freundin, Marie

    • Meine liebe freundin, Marie —

      Deine güte überwältigt mich. Ich bin wirklich berührt. Sie können sicher sein, dass ich Ihre Website besuchen werde, die ich den Lesern von Herzen empfehle.

      Es war ein Segen für mich, Sie zu “treffen” – auch wenn nur online. Ich wünsche dir alles Gute für das Leben.

      Mit Liebe, A. ❤ ❤ ❤
