Spiritual Manipulation PT4: Getting BACK UP

This road is pretty new to me of healing from spiritual manipulation. Its a journey with bumps, curves and steep hills. Being manipulated builds a wall to strive to never be hurt again. But this mentality locks us out of the good life God has in store for us. It places us in a waiting…

Spiritual manipulation PT3: Opening Your Eyes And Seeing TRUTH

Spiritual manipulation PT2: Learning The Voice Of God

Counterfeit Forgiveness & Reaching The Real (PT1)

At 13, I was sneaking into clubs pretending I was 18. 14, was filled with many pregnancies scares and back then I was completely open to the idea of abortion. ( Not today) 15, I was skipping school, and hanging out with older men.
