The Breaking Begins
My name is Kris and my introduction into this world began in an environment of domestic violence, coupled with many other aspects of abuse. But I didn’t let that stop me from surviving and eventually becoming a thriver! This is my story.
Fast Forward to Now
I have been put back together like a Japanese Kintsugi bowl, but the brokeness, paired with the healing, have made me uniquely qualified to understand what victims go through and feel. It is my passion to pass that knowledge on!
Triple Dog Dare
God can use anything to get you into a place where He can reach you. For me, it was a Triple Dog Dare!
A nickname is meant to be used as a term of endearment. But in this case, it was used to lure me out of a safe place.
What did I get for trying to help a beaten down friend? A motorcycle ride that nearly cost me my life and taught me that so much wisdom is needed in order to effectively help victims of domestic violence.
Put the Gavel Down
Judgment comes when people choose only to see the negative in others and disregard the positive. What if we flipped the script and looked for the positive in everyone?
Never Cry Again
Tears are taboo in a house of violence and vows made in a moment, may take a lifetime to break.
Chasing the Winds of Approval
You never feel worthy of wearing a crown when the most important influence in your life makes you feel like you are undeserving and worthless. But this crown belongs to YOU.

To Be or Not to Be
Not everyone you don’t like is a narcissist. In fact, way too many people are given this label but all it does is take away from the pain of victims who truly live under the thumb of a serious Narcissist.
Emotional abuse is not only hard to prove, but hard for people to understand just how difficult it is for the victims. It IS real and it IS detrimental to those who are subjected to it.
Pass the Baton
When a domestic violent relationship is revealed in the setting of a church, it is vitally important how the church responds. It takes wisdom to navigate the relationship from both sides.
The Dark Side of the Moon
There are many phases that victims of domestic violence will go through, but the light that shines on them is from the best source!
Red Roses or Red Flags?: Healing is Essential
A bouquet of red roses or red flags? There are always signs, but you have to be willing to see them.
Dance Through the Fire
Why is it so easy to blame God for everything bad that happens? This is a different perspective on the troubles we face in life.
Caution: Inevitable Explosion Ahead
Peacemakers are not always keeping the peace, but setting themselves up for inner explosions.
Effie: The Chameleon
When a victim escapes from an abusive relationship, it takes time to figure out who they really are again.
EVIA: The Ultimate Price
Domestic violence isn’t only real, it can be life threatening and many victims don’t make it out safely.
Courage is being afraid, but doing it anyway. There is courage in every one of us, including my six year old self who conquered her fear of things so much bigger than her!
Nobody is capable of being perfect, so take the pressure off of yourself and others to be so!
Moving into something new and exciting while treasuring what is being left behind.
Echoes of an Empty Christmas
Christmas may not be happiest season of all right now, but it doesn’t mean it will always be this way. YOU can be the catalyst that starts the transformation!
Let Your Heart Beat Again
The darkest times of your life can be the moments that make you the strongest. Just when I thought my heart could beat one more time, worship revived me and set me on a path of healing.
Don’t wait for the rear view mirror to show you how things were. See them for what they are now and communicate yourself into relational triumph.
My goal is to bring a deeper insight into what Domestic Violence looks like from insiders points of view. Knowing about a subject and truly understanding that subject, are completely different things.
I want victims of domestic violence to be better understood so that they can find solace, comfort and hope from people who genuinely understand their harmful past.
