Lawton, OK – We often get so wrapped up in what’s happening to us, we believe we’re the only ones who have ever had to deal with our problem. No matter what we go through, someone else has already gone through it. You’re not alone. There’s someone out there to help you.
Cheryl Ginnings is an international speaker, best-selling author and the founder of Cheryl Ginnings Consulting. Drawing on her personal experience caring for a special needs child, Cheryl speaks with a sincere heart to uplift and inspire others.
“I understand the problems these families face,” says Cheryl. “They have no voice unless we speak up for them. I want to be that voice, and it’s my responsibility to help others find their voice as well.”
In the recently published #LOVE: A New Generation of Hope compiled by Anita Sechesky, Cheryl shares how having a son with cerebral palsy has brought so much love into their home. Cheryl's story is a reminder that out of the pain of suffering can come many blessings, but it takes courage to overcome.
Today, Blake is 45 years old. He loves sports, going on trips and pizza. But according to Cheryl, many parents aren’t equipped to handle the major financial burdens of their special needs children. In addition, feeling consumed by another person’s needs can lead to isolation and loneliness. She says the number one problem parents face is wondering what other people think of them.
“Your attitude is the key to how you live your life,” says Cheryl. “We knew why Blake had cerebral palsy, but it didn’t answer what we were going to do about it. You have to fight for your children and leave that negative attitude behind you."

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.

Speaking the truth to your family.
Telling your family that you were molested as a child is about the hardest part of breaking your silence. Many of us were molested by a family member who is respected and loved by most. You will begin to stack the reasons and excuses as to why you can’t or shouldn’t tell your family in your head and it sounds very reasonable in your head, but you know that it has to be done.
Breaking your silence to someone you trust is just opening the old infected wound and letting the poison out, but as adults we all know that our wound is not going to truly heal if we don’t let the doctor cut it open and clean it out completely. We are adults that were traumatized as children. We know better now. We are not little boys and girls and we have to set the example for others and show ourselves that we deserve being healthy and getting healing. We have to refuse to allow our molesters have power over us another day! You have to stop looking over your shoulder and walking on egg shells. This is what happened and it was not your fault and it is time to experience your life as it should be!
