L.M. Carleton, Linda, age 50

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

I understand the fear of exposing your secrets.

I tried to forget my own past.

But encountering an estranged husband on a dating website caused the memories to resurface.

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

He showed me the truth about love, life, relationships, family dynamics, and sexual behavior, allowing me to overcome unhealthy patterns — which I would like to share with you.
