I am finally starting to write what may well be the most significant work of my life. As you can probably guess, it is about my most recent detour into deception and God’s amazing grace to rescue me, get me back on track, heal, restore, and renew my faith after my near-fatal collision with the pit of hell.
The working title is “Deception’s Open Doors” … Over the last year or so, I have consistently recognized the open doors that had given the enemy access to deceive me, wreaking havoc and devastation in my family and nearly destroying my faith in the One Who saved me.
However, I don’t just want to tell MY story … I want to share other tales of deception and those additional doors that have given entrance to the destroyer.
If you have experienced deception in your life, and have, in hind sight, looked back and learned what vulnerabilities in your life invited the enemy in and enabled you to believe the lie, I would love to hear from you.
If you prefer to remain anonymous in the final manuscript, I will certainly protect your identity in appropriate ways.
It’s the stories I want to share, along with mine, to help others avoid, if at all possible, the painful, tragic results of deception.
Please feel free to forward this announcement or repost on other writers networks or sites.
Thanks in advance for helping me spread the word!
I’ve spent the better part of 2012 telling my story of surviving 12 years of horrific abuse in a spiritually destructive organization called Sound Doctrine, the current owners of WinePress Publishing.
Many people have cheered me on as I’ve gained the courage to tell my story of spiritual abuse. I felt a deep concern for the many Christian authors who needed to be warned about the true colors of the new ownership of WinePress. At the same time, I’ve also felt compelled to encourage those who have all but lost their faith as a result of their own abuse.
However, my family has always voiced their concern about my public processing of the pain I endured and the ups and downs of my journey of healing.
Because of my commitment to healing, not only for myself, but for my relationships with my children, I’ve prayerfully made the decision to close access to previous posts and refrain from making further comments on my blog.
Truth be told, I should have done this long time ago. He whispered “in quietness and trust is your strength” but I would have none of it. (Isaiah 30:15)
While I remain “not afraid to tell my story”, I also make the choice to focus my time on my close personal relationships, rather than remaining in the comfortable safety zone of online (arm’s length) relationships.
Thanks for stopping by, and if you’d like to communicate with me, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, as the comment option has been disabled.
