“I just finished Don’t Be Silent: Stop Domestic Violence by K. Hartfield. I am a survivor. I am a God-loving, God-living, God-fearing Christian 50 year old lady. I have almost earned my Bachelors in Social Work with a HUGE desire to counsel domestic abuse victims. Just yesterday, I learned I have been accepted into the Masters Program of Social Work. God has opened doors amazingly for me, someone who doesn’t deserve such grace and mercy.
Thank you for your words, I have cried today reading as so many applied to me. I am separated, not legally, since 2005 and barely surviving financially. I am looking at major life decisions with the possibility of more college. I need to forgive my spouse, God is telling me to, but I am having issues with flashbacks and memories.
Sorry, I’m crying again. I think the camp thing would be such a wonderful idea. I would love to see a shelter in our small city – the closest one is 30 miles away in another county which serves about 8 other counties. It is always full. Several of my college classmates are interning there for their bachelors degree in social work.
Again, thank you for writing a book that touched me so deeply. My son is a pastor and I would love for him to read this book in the hope of correctly counseling a victim of domestic violence. May God bless you and grant your wishes and desires of your heart.”
