Mr. Brett A. Scudder hosts his weekly "Crimes of Passion in Dating, Relationships & Marriage" show that focuses on the crimes committed in the heat of passion or from the joy, anxiety, hurt, anger, betrayal and pain felt from it.About CW Seymore:Please lord don’t let him find me, please lord don’t let him find me.The above caption was my constant prayer. This was my cry in desperation for "Help" and "Rescue," that never came from my father in the countless tragic, horrifying events that occurred throughout my childhood. Through tears; in pain; experiencing shock or fearing for my life this prayer was uttered in earnest; rocking back and forth hiding in one of my many "Safe Places" usually outside in the forest or in the cornfield, under my bed, in a closet and behind the couch where I was terrified, alone, helpless and so very afraid.This journey has been tremendously difficult! Recalling the past and reliving the intense fear and pain associated with each memory was emotionally draining awakening my many "Triggers" and sending them into overdrive causing severe panic attacks, anger and intense anxiety.This book is healing for me ending the silence and one step closer to my Higher Calling the Lord has planned for my life. My greatest of all hope, is that these stories and vivid accounts will help other Survivors find hope, healing and comfort in knowing they are not alone! This book is for all those who have suffered in silence at the hands of a Guardian or Protector where Domestic Abuse; extreme Physical Abuse; Verbal Degradation; Mental Anguish, Rape and Sexual Molestation resided. CW Seymore has written Shards of Glass under a pen name to protect her family. Author is available for speaking engagements and interviews via email@example.com.Thank you and God bless. One Love.~SISFI~

About Mr. Budinsky.
My life has been challenging at best. I've dealt with addiction, shattered relationships, abandoned careers. I've been homeless, shot at, broken and disgusted. Only this last year have I "come out of hiding" so to speak. I have been ashamed of something and running my entire life. I never knew what it was. Now I know. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and it has profoundly affected my life.
I was violated by three family members, a family friend, a neighbor, two local businessmen, a serial pedophile, a twenty-one year old women who enjoyed having a fifteen year old 'boy toy', and a psychiatrist. I began acting out and exhibiting signs when I was around ten, so this man was chosen to help me. He was a prominent member of our community as well as the church I was brought up in. He "took care" of all us young acolytes. Surely he could be trusted. He couldn’t.
I knew I was broken, troubled, and hopelessly addicted and entered recovery for that in 1976 at the age of twenty-six. My healing, spiritual journey began then. I worked diligently over the years in twelve step programs, therapy, inner child work, meditation, religion, ad infinitum. Suffice it to say that if there was anything available which I thought would be healing and enriching, I grabbed onto it. Yet I would periodically self destruct, typically when it appeared that I was doing my best.
Please join us and share the info.
Thank you Mr. Budinsky for taking the time to be our guest.
Join Mr. Brett A. Scudder as he talks with Ms. Patricia ‘Trish’ McKnight, advocate, author, speaker, writer, talk radio produdcer/host, abuse survivor and founder of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery & Talk Radio Programming.
She now lives safe, finally enjoying the peace within and helping others to recover from the trauma and emotional wounds of abuse and/or family/relationship violence. In Feb 2011 she released her true horrifying story of the twelve years of torture and disfiguring neglect during childhood. She shares with readers the many silent warning signs and signals others often disregard as a child without a voice lives daily through her nightmare.
The abandonment of those who could have and should have intervened to help this child deepened the belief that she didn’t deserve rescue or any form of human kindness. It also left her to be trained to accept these actions throughout her adult life; in a sense seeing them as ‘normal’. It was this belief and fear of rejection, along with the burdened soul of shame & blame, which kept this broken woman trapped in 20 years of repeated abusers. Those she thought would love and respect her as she did them, turned into controlling, degrading, and almost deadly attackers.
Sadly, Ms. McKnight, had children during her first marriage and those children then walked this path of terror, pain, and dysfunction along with her. Trish has seen how these generational acts of abuse and/or violence are passed into our children’s lives through the decisions and choices we make. In accepting the violence, control and degradation for all those years, she had no clue what impact it would have on her children’s lives. She finally found the courage to leave her last abuser, but not until permanent physical damage was done to her and the emotional trauma had left its scars on her children.

She has a powerful story to share on many levels that will give a good look at the real state of challenges being faced by victims and survivors. Join or listen the dialog on the air or online.
About Ms. Hedrick.
I am an Advocate for Domestic Violence, Child Abuse and Neglect, Child Sexual Abuse, Rape, Bullying and all other forms of abuse. I am a blogger and guest speaker on blog radio shows.
I was born into a domestic violence home with an alcoholic father. That is the world I knew for the first seventeen years of my life. I was raped by a stranger just before I turned eighteen. I was assaulted twice by my father in law a few years later, and he also sexually assaulted my little girl twice. I spent years of silence, which is all I knew. People knew of these acts, but no one cared enough to or knew enough to help or give me a way out.
Years of silence brought me to 10 years of therapy when I was 33yrs old. I did pretty well and tried to fix all the problems brought upon myself and family. I did well, but everything exploded about four years ago when I started talking with my family members and getting the same old reaction. I made myself heard, put my story out to the public, thereby, finding my voice and my freedom.
I kept talking and exposing myself in hopes that my story will resonate with someone enough to give them the courage to speak about their own abuse and truly free themselves. I ache for all of the children who are still being abused and am doing whatever I can to help save even one child. We cannot as a society let this scourge on our children continue and do our best to affect change in any way we can.
A lot of people are having sex nowadays because (1) it feels good and pleasure is everything these days and (2) less people are caring as much. I'm not coming here to preach to anyone because I'm not perfect and even virgns shouldn't judge anyone. I'm just here to talk about 2013 and how I feel this is the year for those who want to make a change. I definitely want to talk a bit about how important sex is and why it is really meant for marriage. I know all my listeners might not

In this episode of Victory for Victims, speaker Crystal Blount will take listeners on a deeper journey through the dark, psychological after-effects of sexual abuse that affect a persons soul. She'll uncover the shame of personal experiences with listeners and reveal patterns of behavior that many past victims of rape and sexual abuse struggle with.
During this intimate discussion, the host will touch on mature subjects such as sexual addiction, homosexuality, seduction, prostitution, and many other ways victims seek to grasp and regain "power" in their lives...and ultimately focus on God's redeeming, healing Love and the true power in being transparent with our shame.
Sex trafficking survivor Delores Day tells her own story of abuse that started with her own father who had been abusing her for years selling her to a "friend" when she was only a teenager. Her story went on to explain how the cycle repeats itself. By denying what happens in one's self - you can't see what's coming towards your own children and thus the cycle repeats. Delores brings up many good points - including that while these trafficking victims are "at work" the children are often alone with them where the child victims are both boys and girls. But for the sake of her children, she managed to save her self and them before more harm could be done. Now to try and help others in a way only other survivors can - she's putting together her own safe house in Wisconsin. Hear how you can get involved and help.

Patrick Dati is a survivor of child abuse and years of bullying. Patrick is now a nationally recognized Child Advocate seeking to promote increased awareness of child abuse and bullying, and deliver a message of hope onto victims.
I AM ME helps educate survivors and others who just want to learn more about the pain, needs, fears, hopes and the recovery process of an adult survivor.
For millions of victims on the path to recovery, I AM ME is the next step. This is my story of childhood abuse, sibling bullying and hiding from who I was. I am a survivor and want to help others heal as I did from my trauma and show them there is hope.
Statistics show that most boys and men do not come forward about abuse out of shame and fear. I was one of those statistics but after years of depression and attempts with suicide I decided it was time to tell my story. I hid my entire life to please my family and others around me out of fear that they would disown me and not accept me for me. I want to help others who suffer and show them that not only can they survive but I can help them with the steps they need to take to enjoy life again.
