1. Hey Paula,

      Thank you so much. I would love to chat with you. And yes, I love your quote. I will reach out to you!

  1. This is such a great post, Michelle! It is hard to talk about it but it is so important. I know from experience that it is not easy to be the one who goes first, but since I started talking about it, three others in my fairly small church have shared their stories of abuse with me, and I’m sure there are others I don’t know about too. I was also able to run a training session on how to respond well to stories of abuse. I’ve been very encouraged by the fact that people in my church are open to talking about it and learning about it. I think sometimes people just don’t know where to start. It seems like such a big task, but I love your point that we have to do it “one church at a time”. Praying that you get many more opportunities to share your story.

    1. Thank you, Lesley. I am so thankful you are using your voice and helping others find hope and healing! You are a blessing to me, and I appreciate your prayers so much.

  2. What a message! You are right: there is sexual abuse going on in churches, and the topic must be addressed. My prayer is that God will use you to bring conviction to those in sin and healing to those who have been abused.

    1. Thank you so much for your prayers and support. I appreciate you reading this message and I am praying along with you! <3
