    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1288

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Lisa Dawn Wilkins from North Platte, Nebraska, a returning NAASCA family member. A survivor of severe childhood sexual and physical abuse, her adult life was just as disastrous and painful. Now she's a foster parent and author of a new book, "Abuse The Darkness Within," expected out soon. She runs a popular NAASCA associated Facebook Community of the same name. There's also a companion Facebook Group for sharing. Lisa works to bring about awareness and to put an end to child abuse and domestic violence. "Medication to me is not the answer," Lisa says. "I healed and continue to heal by choosing to help others and challenge my fear one step at a time. I had several diagnoses through out my life and after studying them I knew that was not what I had. I knew what took me years to get to would take me years to come out of." She goes on, "I suffered from circumstances, from things that happen to me. The psychologist try to push medication. But look at me. I refused and I am a productive citizen. We can choose to let them win or we can choose to win." Determined to succeed, Lisa went her own way. "I walked away from everyone and everything I knew my whole life and I put up a no contact order. I started over and my life has improved everyday their away. I still love them but I don't desire their approval or love any longer." Lisa concludes, "I now share my story to bring awareness to what is real, what I lived through and what I do to over come."

    This One Step - Older Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

    in Christianity

    Thursday


                            I am here for you


     


    Thursday is dedicated to survivors to call in and let us all know how they are helping other fellow survivors.  Survivors, at any stage of healing can be a tremendous help to fellow survivors.  It does not have to be on a grand scale.  You can call into a blogtalk radio show and just having your name present can let survivors know that they are not alone.  You can visit a non-profit that deals with survivors of child sexual abuse and volunteer at an event or visit their web page.  Visiting web pages gives them a count on how many visits and that helps with applying for grants. Also, leave a testimony.  You may believe that your story is not that interesting, but it is to someone who has not found the courage to break their silence and sees that there is someone who has the same story as they do.  Buy a t-shirt or a book.    It is great healing when you help others.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1286

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Cheri Roberts from Lincoln City, Oregon. Cheri is a prolific journalist, who suffered many forms of (sexual, emotional and physical) abuse as a child and her series offers voices from other adult survivors supported by leading experts on the topic of pedophilia, incest and molestation. Cheri is a weekly talk-show host and producer for "Challenging the Rhetoric" (#CTR) every Wednesday. She also hosts a special First Thursdays series called, Sickness of Silence (#SOS) addressing childhood sexual abuse. The talk show description explains, "The culture of silence lives on in every generation molding each like the one that came before it. Silence enables abuse, but our words have always held the power to stop it. It is our inability to listen to and share uncomfortable truths that have allowed families to maintain their semblance of normalcy." Cheri suffered abuse as a child, but most notably was sexually abused by several uncle's and a couple of her mother's boyfriends. The sexual abuse began at the age of 3 when Cheri's uncle and aunt became her legal guardians amidst the drug-fueled backdrop of America's sexual revolution. Cheri has spoken openly on the topic of her abuse for decades and feels the shaming of the abuser is also the shaming of the child. As she says, "Shame is what keeps secrets." Outside of her personal life, Cheri is a much endorsed writer, investigative journalist, coach and marketer. As a freelance writer and prominent activist, Cheri lives her life “out-loud” challenging the system with her back turned against the status quo of the failed corporate media.

    Foster Parenting: Can Raising A Relative's Child Affect Your Marriage?

    in Women

    Things happen in families. Someone gets sick, someone dies, someone goes to jail, someone gets strung out on drugs. It happens, our siblings, our cousins, maybe even our close friends, for whatever reason, leave behind children to raise and we choose to step up to the plate. But our choice, rather through a sense of compassion, obligation, or guilt, may not always be our spouse's choice. What if the child is unruly, undisciplined, disobedient and disrespectful? How do we love and care for them anyway? What of their oresence disrupts our home? Should we expect our spouse to just continue to be patient and supportive? What happens if a child begins to negatively affect your marriage - and there is no other relative who is willing to step up? Would you put a child who is a blood relative in foster care? Should you, if they become too much to handle?
