Introducing myself and my journal: From Victim to Survivor My Journey

Kimberlee Tuttle
Posted May 8, 2013 from United States

About Me: In a matter of hours, I went from being a Victim of Domestic Violence to being in a Homeless shelter. God put me on a journey I never thought i would survive. God blessed me that night, because He revealed to me why i had gone through all my trials, so that i could share my story with everyone in the same situation that i had been through, and by His Grace, i could let other VICTIMS know they could also be SURVIVORS, give some hope to others, and letting them know, they were not Alone, God would always see them through their battles. I would go through it all again just to be where i am today. You have to have trials to have a testimony. I thank God everyday, for where i am now.

My Passions: Public Speaking, giving hope to others

My Challenges: Learning how to give & leave my burdens with Jesus, and that things happen in God's timing, not ours !

My Vision for the Future: Being God's servant, and continuing my journey with Him, and still doing what i'm doing now.

My Areas of Expertise: Nursing career for 27 years, and Surving
