Hi, I’m Jon

And I'm not an expert. Or a counselor. 

I'm a father of three amazing girls, a husband to a beautiful wife, a former pastor, and a current video marketing consultant. I really don't know the future of this site. It's beginning as a simple platform for me to tell my story of emotional and spiritual abuse and most importantly, the recovery process and healing. Let me be clear on this, I'm not "fixed" or writing from a place of perfection. I'm a work in progress like most other people I know. This site will grow to include resources to help those of you with abuse stories of your own. I'll be upfront about this, I don't have the time or expertise to personally help you, but I will list resources to those that do. Whatever your reason for coming here, just know you are welcome and invited in and understood.
