An Upcoming Authors Spotlight

thblood relatives

Hello Everyone! I’m caught up after completing a few projects that needed my attention and so this is my Friday’s post, a tad late,_geez, such is the life:) I’m going to have a very special guest author on this Friday for a one on one conversation regarding Domestic Violence or Relationship Violence. Darlene Greene is no stranger to me in that she has contributed often to Authentic Woman’s “From The Experts” section, speaking and offering invaluable insights to women on ways to leave a violent relationship “Safely.”

I recently read Darlene’s new book of her own personal tragedy where she talks freely about losing three members of her family to domestic violence. I asked her to share her journey with all of you. As founder and executive director of The Ina Mae Greene Foundation, Darlene is on a mission to help save lives.This book is such a valuable resource and a powerful testament to women worldwide, who are faced with life threatening situations from men who profess to love them.

In her book, Darlene shares “red flags”, safe measures women can take to leave an abusive relationship without becoming victim and more resources that are put in place to help any woman who seek refuge or a safe place to land. Darlene Greene wants you to become empowered and break the cycle and the silence of domestic violence…

Hope to see you on Friday!

Book Review-Out From The Depths Of Pain

“Nearly 74% of Americans personally know someone who is, or has been a victim of Domestic Violence”-Allstate Foundation National Poll on Domestic Violence,2006, Liberman Research Inc.

Initially, Leah thought David, a kind and considerate man. He was an upstanding Senator in the community, well known & liked. All of her friends assumed they’d make the perfect couple, well, nearly all. Tamar, Leah’s best friend, had her doubts. The two married 2 years after meeting as volunteers at Habitat For Humanity.
Leah’s aunt whispers “You’ve just made the biggest mistake of your life.” On the honeymoon, Leah was beaten and made to sleep nearly naked on the floor of their glorious suite,while David Lee slept soundly underneath 500 thread Egyptian sheets…

What’s to become of Leah? How can she protect her child? How can she keep her family from finding out? Chrisean Meyer is a police officer. He’s seen it all before- his sister was a victim of domestic abuse. Will Chrisean be able to show Leah a different kind of love? Will she even allow him into her life?

Out From The Depths Of Pain is a work of fiction that deals with everyday situations, while exploring romantic and responsible Christian relationships. It’s a book well worth the read…
