Blog Hop to Raise Awareness About Domestic Violence:

  • “Why does it take something so public to come out for us to stand up and do something about such an injustice? ” – Chad Landman: Exposing the Darkness of Domestic Violence (chadl.co)
  • “Those who are abused need a place to recoup. House them, provide them with basic needs (i.e. clothing, food, shelter, travel, etc.), and most importantly open up your heart to them. Be a living example of love in their life. Choose your words carefully, show them grace, and remind them of their high worth to you and God.” – Jack Dodgen: The Christian’s Response to Domestic Violence (overcomeonline.org)
  • “Domestic abuse is most often targeted toward women, yes, but it’s not only that. It is likely that far more men are abused than would ever report because they are too embarrassed to admit that anything like this is happening. … There is nothing Godly about tearing our husbands down. In fact, as much as we may think we’re just a “harmless” nagging wife, we are vexing their souls. We are cutting them down and defeating their spirits. We are likely causing them to stumble and may very well be tempting them to be unfaithful to their God.” – Emily Hatfield: Stop Violence (emilyhat.com)
  • “I think we can all agree that this is a worthy effort, but we also run into a personal problem. After all, what can I do to help end the terrible reign of domestic violence, especially among teens?” – Daniel Webster: How You Can Stop Domestic Violence (tomorrowschurchtoday.weebly.com)
  • “What are some ways we can spank our children without being abusive? From one who is far from perfect, let me give you 5 suggestions. … I know this is controversial territory, and stories like the one with Adrian Peterson only grow the controversy. But there is a Biblical way to administer a spanking without being abusive.” – Adam Faughn: Adrian Peterson and Biblical Discipline (alegacyoffaith.us)
  • “Domestic violence could be compared to the leaves of plant above ground which is seen. The plant’s existence above ground indicates that there is more to it below ground. So it is with domestic violence when it is finally exposed and seen by all, it also represents some major roots below the surface that caused and produced the violence.” – Josh Ketchum: 8 Roots of Domestic Violence (joshketchum.com)
  • “October is a month dedicated to domestic violence awareness, and recent events have brought this atrocity into the media’s eye. It’s high time it was brought to the attention of the Lord’s church.” – Josh Clevenger: Domestic Violence (thepfp.net)

 

 

Help us shine the light on the darkness of domestic violence!

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. 85% of domestic violence victims are women.

It’s time we speak up about this problem and seek God’s guidance on the issue. For the entire month of October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, most of the programming from TLN will be dedicated to raising awareness regarding domestic violence.
