It’s been less than 24 hours since I publicly came out as a sexual abuse survivor of cult leader, Bill Gothard. The response has been beyond overwhelming. As I continue to comb through the hundreds of media/Facebook comments, private messages, voice mails, and texts, I would like to pause and say a brief and sincere “Thank you!”
From my personal FB page:
Wow. I am blown away. Thank you to all who have showered me with literally hundreds loving and encouraging messages! Your kind words make my heart soar! This even feels a bit like justice on this earth. What a gift!
THIS, my friends, is how it is supposed to be. Loving others like Jesus. There are millions of #metoo women out there. You are surrounded by more of them than you will ever know. We need your love and compassion; for you to simply say, “I believe you”. So, go out there and love like Jesus . You never know who you may be ministering to.
Today was my first day walking in true freedom. Freedom found in the true Gospel of scandalous grace that I just discovered last year. Freedom found in crushing all the secrets and shame. Freedom found in LOVE from an army of supporters. Yes, I’d say today was a good day.
