As I mentioned in THIS post, my friend Kelli already had her baby; her shower took place early last month and was absolutely adorable.
I knew it would be given the team of creative women behind it! Small woodland creatures, an extravagant trail mix bar, hilarious games and a very special group prayer over Kelli and her little one made this an unforgettable gathering of family and friends.
Not to mention the cake art.
I was truly blessed to be a part of this celebration.
This interview with Alex Skeel sheds light into female to male domestic abuse which is often overlooked and seriously misunderstood (this landmark case is the UK’s first conviction for coercive control involving a female offender). An abuser seeks to control all aspects of another person’s life by taking over finances, making threats, keeping their victims isolated, injuring them physically and emotionally. It is a constant chipping away of a person’s sense of self that leaves the victim feeling vulnerable, helpless, and hopeless.
Such cruelty is difficult to fathom and a female abuser knows this works to their advantage. After all, who would believe it?
We have meeting monthly for nearly FOUR YEARS now!
Most of the women were strangers even to me when we first began.
There are 11 of us now, rotating in and out of seats. Discussing four questions over two hours.
With much laughter and sometimes tears. Our stories, ages, and places in life vary. As do perspectives.
I have learned so much by being part of this amazing group of women. This is IF:Table.
