The Miseducation of Domestic Violence By Nicole Lofton

Image
Hello Again! I have yet again something to share with you all today lol.  I finally finished my ebook/pdf "The Miseducation of Domestic Violence:Dispelling The Myths In Order To Promote The Truth

This is just a small PDF and this is something that has been on my heart. There are so many myths about domestic violence and I always try to dispel those myths. I addressed 10 of them that I feel are common or that I hear about the most. 
I pray that this blesses someone, please feel free to share it as well. If you would like to get in contact me, you can email me at nicole@faithfuldeedsfoundation.org

Award Winning Singer/Songwriter Laura Baron Premieres New Video About Domestic Violence!

Hello again to all my wonderful readers and supporters!

Once again, I have something to share with you. As you know already, I love to see or hear about people spreading awareness about domestic violence and I am always open to working with anyone supporting this cause. I was blessed to receive an email from singer/songwriter Laura Baron who shared with me that she had made a music video to raise awareness for domestic violence.


When people reach out to me, I like to take my time to actually listen or read what is that they are doing, have done, or want to do so it did take me a couple of days to watch the video in its entirety. I can honestly say that I absolutely love this video. The video is very emotional but I appreciate the realness of it. It tells and shows the story of a woman breaking free from domestic violence. I believe that this is a video that everyone should see. I am happy to be able to blog about it and share it with you all today.

I am happy to present to you Laura B…

DomesticShelters.org: A Website That Is Making A Difference!

Image
Hello to all of my readers!

Today, I want to share a very important resource with you all. Some of you may already know of this resource already. I have been meaning to write about this resource for some time now and I finally got around to it. The resource that I am speaking of is DomesticShelters.org and as I wrote in the title of this blog post, it is definitely a website that is making a difference in the lives of survivors, victims, and those around them.
So what is DomesticShelters.org?
Well DomesticShelters.org is the LARGEST(see how I wrote that lol) online searchable database for domestic violence shelters. This is something that has definitely been well needed in the domestic violence field. DomesticShelters.org was started by Theresa's Fund and The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Not only does it provide information regarding shelters, they provide many other resources as well including amazing articles for anybody that has a questions about DV, anybody w…

Ashton Kutcher And His Media Company A Plus Spread Awareness About Domestic Violence!

Image
I am thoroughly excited that Ashton Kutcher and his media company A Plus have decided to join the fight against domestic violence. Domestic Violence is still a cause that needs much attention and I always think it is awesome when celebrities help raise awareness. I know that ANYBODY can raise awareness, but celebrities can raise awareness on a bigger scale and so I think what Ashton Kutcher and his media team are doing is amazing. 
What they have done is created an infographic that shows, in their words, "the effects of abuse that outlast physical violence, but are still detrimental". The infographic basically shows what happens after abuse and how it affects the survivor as far as their children, their employment, and their living situations go. 
Infographics are great because some people are visual, meaning they need to see something in order to understand it. Not everyone can or wants to read a long paragraph or a bunch of statistics simply because it is not the way that t…

Dear Survivor, It's Time To Heal

Dear Survivor,

I hope this message finds you at the right time in your life. It's been a while since I have wrote on this blog, but I am always grateful for all of you who still read and keep up with this particular blog. I have a very important message on my heart. It is one that God has placed on my heart this week and that message is that it is time to heal.

This is only goes for you, but it  goes for me as well. It is time for us to heal and allow ourselves to be free to be ourselves again as well as to love and be loved. Now I know some people may feel like they have already healed. I felt that way too, but sometimes we are only temporarily or half way healed.

The moment that we keep replaying our situation and it brings us down instead of uplifting us, that is a sign that we are not yet healed. The moment when we try to begin a new relationship or endeavor, but the memories of the past begin to haunt us and hold us back, then we are not healed yet. The moment we feel ashame…
