    Befriending Your Anger

    Befriending Your Anger

    After another long hiatus, Amber and Tasha return to build on one of the themes that appeared in Amber's interview with Cassandra. In this episode anger will be both discussed and modeled, so buckle up! Our prayer is that through listening you'll be able to make a little bit more space for your anger, and hopefully release any old pent up rage that is ready to be let go of.

    Thank you, as always, for continuing along with us, even though our publication schedule has been unpredictable. Given that this project rides on where Amber's healing takes her from week to week and month to month the publication of this episode represents a major and happy breakthrough. We're grateful to you for honoring the radio silence while she has worked towards voicing these thoughts publicly.

    Cassandra

    Cassandra

    This episode introduces Cassandra, or Cassy, who was sexually assault by an older female peer when they both were children. As you listen you'll hear some specifics regarding how Cassandra recovered the traumatic memory of this incident, how she discovered that her lifelong battle with pornography was actually the proverbial tip of the trauma iceberg, and how she has learned to harness her anger as fuel in that continuing battle. Cassandra offers many grounding, empowering, heartbreaking, and energizing perspectives in our twelfth episode of On Sovereign Wings. We are grateful for her obvious and palpable courage.

So healing ❤️

This is actually the first place I’d ever heard that abuse is about having your power taken from you. That opened up so much more understanding for me and felt like a real doorway to healing. I’ve loved hearing each story and recognizing little ways that I resonate with each one.

Law of Chastity Vs. Trauma

I really enjoyed Channing's episode and related to her on so many levels. I am so grateful to know that I am not the only one with the opinion/testimony that trauma, the effects of trauma, and sexual abuse are different than breaking the law of chastity. I have shared this episode with family and friends and hope one day to be able to share these powerful virtues with my own children. Keep it up! I am loving every episode!!

A safe space

As a survivor myself I value this space so much. It’s so important to not stay silent about these things, and I’m thankful for strong women paving the way!
