L.M. Carleton, Linda

I’m also a mother and caregiver for the elderly and physically challenged for more than twenty years.

I understand the danger of keeping your abuse a secret—the anguish of living in fear and the burden of shame after losing custody of two children.

I kept painful secrets for years

But the memories of childhood trauma and domestic violence resurfaced after an encounter with an estranged husband on a dating website.

Afterward I created a writing blog and asked God why it seems I must always suffer. He illuminated the darkness with divine wisdom.

Helping to discern the truth about love, life, relationships, family dynamics, and sexual behavior, allowing me to see unhealthy patterns and overcome mental anguish– which I would like to share with you.
