    I am really loving your writing! I have been waiting for this kind of series from a trusted source for years. Warning signs of abusers, why victims stay, what abuse looks like, etc. Though you are addressing marital abuse specifically, there is so much crossover to other areas of abuse too (such as child abuse, sexual assault, etc) and there is such a need for awareness on it all especially amongst our churches. Thank you for being brave enough to confront these often hushed-up issues! I look forward to the rest of your writings!
