Everyone has a need to be loved. Sometimes, those feelings can lead you into a relationship that is not healthy.

Being in an unhealthy relationship reinforces feelings of isolation and shame.

If you find yourself in an unhealthy relationship and you experience these feelings, chances are you also feel that no one understands what you’re going through. I’m here to tell you that you are not alone.

Purchase your copy of My Life, My Soul, Surviving, Healing and Thriving After An Abusive Relationship, which is available on Amazon.com, and take a walk with me on my journey from Victim to Survivor. Not only will you find out that you’re not alone, but that someone does understand what you’re going through!

I describe how as a teenager in an abusive dating relationship I spiraled down into a destructive, violence and abusive marriage.

But My Life, My Soul is not your average book about WHAT someone in an abusive relationship goes through, but I describe HOW I was able to break the emotional and psychological chains of my abuser and WHAT I was thinking while I was going through the abuse.

I have even included actual court documents to show how the legal system adds to the feelings of victimization.

My Life, My Soul will inspire and motivate you to make positive changes in your life!


Purchase your copy on Amazon.com in print or e-book!

Take a look at what one loyal reader had to say:

This book really touched my heart. Not only did it give me a better understanding of domestic abuse, but also the emotional and mental affects that it can cause on a person. The book answered a lot of questions people tend to ask about why people stay in abusive relationships. I cried. I laughed. I yelled. Each page brought on a new emotion. Ivette did an amazing job of telling her story and spreading awareness on the subject. I also recommend this book for teens eighteen and older. My Life, My Soul can def open their eyes and giving them tips on what to look for in young guys who seem to have it together.      By LaKeysha S. on October 19, 2013
