Reaffirming for believers and non-believers who are survivors of SA

As a believer of Jesus and follower of Him, and as someone who has recently admitted that I experienced sexual assault - thank you. This is a conversation I didn’t know I would need but am so glad it’s here. Great to be surrounded by people who are vulnerable and affirming what I feel, helps me feel less isolated and like I’m not crazy. Keep up this work, God sees it and is so glad you’re doing it on His behalf.

Thank you

Love the playfulness and openness of both Kate and Laura. Being able to share your vulnerabilities openly with love and so God centered is inspiring!
