Love therapy in the midst of all the rape and ache

Georgi and I, the 23 year sexually assaulted from age 8 h 18 (1/6)

Love therapy is the best I found to work with the rape victims who come to my centre.

My center is called Home of Hope & Healing, run by the association Hope for the Abused and Battered. This therapy works hundred times more than sympathy or empathy therapy, or any other therapies I learnt in school. I ask very few of any questions, I just love and tap into my spirit’s bidding. How else do you reach out to a freightened 9 years old who was sexually abused and raped when she was 8? And what of the 23 years old who was sexually abused from the age of 8-11 and raped from the age of 11-18? Worst of all both atrocities by relatives who had ‘ward’ over them?

I am so grateful for the way the Lord is using me to #makeitmatter and #MakeitMemorable for these girls.

#itispossible someone, #letGodandLovelead #letitflow #youdeservehappiness so always cherish an #attitudeofgratitude Georgi, Courage, Blessing, Adam, Ekema, and Brandon all make me so proud of the goodness of the Lord in my life Amen

Marie you are really doing a marvelous job of healing our sisters and children that have been abused. Love is a very strong thing to hold on. Though the word has been bastardized but there is still hope in using that word. God is love. Thank you for sharing your lovely work

Dear Sis,

I am talking of God's love and mine for a fellow human being especially an innocent sister or child. God is using me marvelously and I am ready. Thanks so much for your comment and encouragement
