Today on Perry and Shawna Mornings, this might be the rescue you or somebody you love has been desperate for—it’s a conversation about domestic violence. Geremy Keeton, Senior Director of Focus on the Family’s Counseling Department joins the team. First Geremy defines domestic violence. And it may be for the first time in your life, you realize this is what’s happening to you. Then, the warning signs of domestic violence so you can recognize if this is happening to you or someone you love. Next, how you can be the best ally for someone suffering from domestic violence.
Then, real steps for escaping domestic violence, and we talk about how being safe and setting boundaries is the best thing you can do for your marriage. Next, what to do if you realize that you are the abuser—you can change, you can get a do-over through Jesus. Then, Geremy gives real hope that real change can happen. And finally we see that domestic violence is spiritual warfare—it’s prompted by the enemy who seeks to kill, steal and destroy. But Jesus can bring life and tear down the strongholds of domestic violence. Please share today’s show! For help: www.focusonthefamily.com/abusiverelationships.
