"If your partner has ever put their hands around your neck, put you in a 'sleep hold', or used anything else to strangle you like a scarf, necklace, belt, rope, etc. your risk of being killed by them is 10x higher."- National Domestic Violence Hotline @ 1-800-799- SAFE
" 1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence."- National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
"72% of all murder suicides involve an intimate partner. 94% of the victims of these murder suicides are female"- National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
I read an article called "An End to Domestic Violence" It helped me to see that it wasn't my fault and that I had a GOD given right to be free of any kind of abuse or mistreatment.
I called the Domestic Violence Hotline @ 1-800-799-7233. This gave me the Facts and the Realization that I need to truly see the severity of the situation.
The Security of knowing I had my Survive and Thrive Go Bag in my car Ready to Leave before he came home.
And Leave I did! Only with a tremendous amount of help and support did I stay away. It takes a woman on average seven times to leave for good. Receiving a go bag and a plan from a local shelter can make the difference in Life. A Life of Abuse!? An END to life!? Or a Life that you can help to STAY FREE OF ABUSE!

I thrive so that you can survive. What does that mean to me? I prepared myself and others for natural disasters and other emergencies. At the same time, I was hiding and enduring the disaster that had become my life. I wore hidden shackles. My scars and bruises were hidden from the world's eyes. I was able to break free from those chains. I now STRIVE one moment at a time to be happy in the joy and peace that was given to me The gift to be free from domestic violence and THRIVE. It's now my turn to repay the love and generosity that was shown to me. I want to help give the keys to as many women as possible to loosen the shackles of a life that is killing them in every way. Let's help affected women everywhere SURVIVE domestic violence AND THRIVE because of your helping hand. I can't do it alone...
