I set out to write a post to/about this pastor who has done such damage to women, to Christians, to the holiness of marriage, to clergy.

But then I realized I don’t think I have anything new to say that I haven’t already said. I have been ringing this bell for about six years now and I will keep ringing it.

But instead of coming up with a bunch of new words, I’m going to share some of my old words, words that have been read and reread and cried over, words that have spurred on email after email of women telling me, THANK YOU…THIS IS MY STORY.

If you are a woman who is abused in any way in her marriage, there is help and hope, I promise you.
