When he came home drunk, he was verbally abusive and would become violent. It was common for him to start a fight over the most trivial thing and he would usually end up throwing something at my Mom. At a very early age I would ask my Mom why we had to stay there with him. She would say, "What am I supposed to do, I don't have anywhere to go that will take 4 kids!"

I loved my Dad but didn't understand why we had to live in fear wondering if he would come home to start another fight. We were very lucky my Mom's brother came to visit a lot and often discussed the Lord and his work with my parents. It was truly a miracle when my Dad gave his life to Jesus. He and my Mom both became born again Christians and the drunk we once feared didn't surface again from that day forward.

Join us as we talk with Katheryn Williams about her journey of domestic abuse and violence as a child in the home.
