Sheli, loved reading your story on incourage. I can very much relate coming from a background of abuse myself. The baggage I brought into my marriage was unbelievable but I praise the Lord that He alone heals and sets us free!

God Bless sister,

Thank you so much for your courageous and tender sharing. I am so grateful that we live in an era where unhealthy secrets are being shared and brought into the light for healing. Your story tells so many stories -- and yes, the whole story is what gives God the glory. Thank you for taking the risk to go into the vulnerable place and bring it out in such a public place. I pray you will receive much encouragement, affirmation and love in answer to your stepping out. I pray God will meet you in that very deep and tender place once again and be your shield and defender (since exposing ourselves can feel, well, exposed ..). Your bravery has inspired me today. Thank you.
