Leaving my abusive husband was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. In public, everyone knew him as a "Christian" man and a "good" husband. I didn't get much support from friends or the community because no one knew what he was like behind closed doors. Rachel Everhart not only shared her story with me, but encouraged me to listen to God, not other's because He was truly the only one that understood my pain and suffering. It's been 5 years since my divorce and I am still healing, but I now know that I'm not alone. God can give me the peace, joy, and understanding to forgive and move on with my life. Thank you Rachel!

If you or anyone you know is dealing with domestic violence please get in touch with Rachel. I am very good friends with her, I met her through Casie Howard at Kindred Hospital. Rachel was Casie's nurse and through God's intervention was with us the night she passed away. Please, listen to this brief excerpt from her interview and share, share, share this clip so the right people can get Godly help to escape from, recover after and thrive in spite of domestic violence. Her whole story is quite amazing and proves God' love for us over and over.

About the domestic violence video...
Brought tears to my eyes as I remembered back to what I went through growing up. I didn't know Jesus then. I know that hopelessness you spoke of. I also can relate to talents being buried but not gone. Well done Rachel. Wow!

One day I went to the local library to print something out and ran in to a perfect stranger. I was struggling with my own issues and she ministered to me right there. She made me look at things totally different in a very short time. Whenever I get down or think the "old way" I always think about Rachel and how far she has come. I still look forward to her Facebook posts of faith. I am thankful for her and that we have stayed in touch after the day we met at the library. She was there for a reason!

When I met Rachel I was separated from God due to the choices I had made in my life. I was running from a past filled with abuse, heartache and betrayal. I had chosen the path that would drown the memories but leave me more alone and empty the next morning.
I had been on a medical leave from work and upon my return there was a "business" card that a lady had dropped off. I immediately went to the website and found myself drawn to this child of God who beat the odds. Her story of hope and survival through Jesus spoke to that dark place in my heart. As God would have it we "bumped" into one another. (A divine appointment, as I like to call it) and through the course of the next year I found myself encouraged. Just knowing someone else had walked a similar path gave me the hope I needed.
Since that chance encounter, Rachel has been a messenger of Christ. She continues to encourage, uplift, and inspire me to seek the forgiveness I need.
God sent His daughter at just the right time to remind me I am never alone and there is always a messenger if we choose to look through our spiritual eyes and allow Him to direct our paths.
I am eternally grateful for the love, commitment and dedication that Rachel's ministry continues to provide in my journey to recovery.
