October is... Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Did you Know???
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month, I felt this was a wonderful opportunity to connect with you on a topic about which I am truly passionate. As shared in my previous newsletter “Transparency,” I had to fight domestic violence in a previous relationship many years ago. But now, I am thriving. Sometimes in life, we end up on a path that we never saw coming. However, God’s grace is sufficient enough to help us not only overcome, but come out stronger. The month of October is special to me because I find myself reflecting on the progression of where I came from, while getting excited about the potential of where I plan to go. My journey as a survivor of domestic violence has allowed me to grow in so many ways, including connecting with so many amazing people, businesses, and new opportunities.
As my passion and purpose align, I began to want to find ways to connect and inspire men and women to seek security beyond their circumstances. In 2017, the Action with Compassion non-profit organization, came into fruition. Its goals are to support victims of domestic violence and find ways to reduce domestic violence in the community, and gun fatalities in the home. Through interactive programs, I have established steps for personal advancement. This 3-hour life-altering seminar is where I host small group training courses on topics such as:
These seminars are aimed to train individuals in the community who feel vulnerable and left behind. Learning these skills will allow them to move from situations where they are merely surviving to actually thriving; permitting advancement in their personal life and financial situation.
These courses have tons of valuable information that if applied properly and consistently can impact your life for the better. It’s important to note creditability when researching, and utilize resources that positively reinforce getting your life back on track. You can do it, I believe in you!
What I want you to take from this is: If there is anyone who is in an abusive situation whether emotional, mental, or physical, LEAVE today, Right Now! Once you remove yourself from the psychological abuse, you will be amazed at how well you can redevelop your life. You realize that you have more purpose than ever before. Turn your tragedy in to tremendous triumph by simply taking the hardest, but the most rewarding step to regaining the life you deserve. - Kim O
