Ep.42 Heart & Soul: A Survivor's Story - Chelsey-Marie Dobson Hamley
Call-in # (646) 668-8360
As we come to the close of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), we wanted to really lift the veil on this subject and continue to expose the secrecy behind it. Most Domestic Violence victims don't want anyone to know they are going through it, so they allow the stigma of guilt and shame to shroud them. There are many faces of Domestic Violence, including our very own Princess Fumi Hancock and myself, Marlas Triplett Sells. We are now seeing an increase in the number of Men who are victims as well. Domestic Violence is not a gender-specific topic any longer.
On this week's episode, we have invited Chelsey-Marie Dobson Hamley to share her story of survival with us. She is no longer a victim, but she is a true Survivor. Chelsey is a mom, an aspiring singer and she's on the verge of completing her GED. Chelsey's story is not unlike the countless stories we've heard before or even shared ourselves. But Chelsey has a tenacity and determination that you will find refreshing. She is finding her voice again. Her heart is to share her story to help others now.
Please join us for another exciting episode of The Southern Warrior Sister Tribe Radio Show hosted by Princess Fumi Hancock, Marlas Triplett Sells and Maxine Holt Donaldson. You won't want to miss it.

Melanie Dobson debuts Shadows of Ladendbrooke Manor. Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor slips back and forth between
the 1950s and a contemporary story where we meet Heather the Doyles daughter. She
returns to her family’s cottage to sort through her parents belongings where she uncovers a string of shocking secrets that leave her wondering if anything her mother said about her childhood was true.
“Mother daughter relationships can be complicated,” Dobson concedes. “
I love when women of different generations are honest with one another about their weaknesses and offer each other
grace just as Christ gave freely to each of us.”
As Heather sorts through the belongings left behind in the cottage, trying to separate truth from deceit, she has
an uncomfortable reunion with her first love. Together, they unravel a mystery that will change ever
thought she knew about herself and her family.
Award winning author Dobson seamlessly weaves the past and present together, fluidly unraveling the
decades old mystery to reveal how the Doyle and Croft families are entwined. Set in a charming world of
thatched cottages and lush English gardens, this
mystery highlights how God’s light cuts through the shadows of life bringing
transformation and restoration and creating
beauty from the ashes of our lives
