Virtual Trauma Art Exhibit Showcase
Abuse takes away our power and makes us feel helpless and hopeless. It leaves us physically and mentally broken, and we start to believe we can’t break free. When we recognize that this is part of Stan’s lies to keep up in bondage, we can come to God broken he will heal our brokenness and set us free. I wrote this poem as a reminder that regardless of all the setbacks on my joining to break free, I will one day be free because God is faithful. And he did let me fly to freedom!
I took this picture without preparation in Fenwick Island, Maryland. I was in the right place at the right time. But I believe that God wanted to encourage my heart.
Rose Saad is a Christian, a survivor of domestic violence, and a registered nurse. In her experience as an emergency room nurse and a member of her faith community, she noticed that both trained professionals and mature Christians frequently misunderstand the abused women who come to them for help. She also noticed a lack of resources designed to help Christian women suffering domestic violence.
Rose used her experience to write A Path to Hope: Restoring the Spirit of the Abused Christian Woman. Her passion is to empower survivors through education about domestic violence and the Word of God. And, her vision is to increase awareness of domestic violence and its effects on families and to share information about strategies and resources that can be used to help victims of domestic violence.
She blogs about domestic violence and the message of hope on her website: https://www.rosesaad.com
