Book Description

One out of every three women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime. Have you ever known one? There's quite a few. Have you ever been one? Was the victim you? How did it happen? Why live in such pain? How could she stay when she had nothing to gain? Did they doubt your strength and consider you weak? Or cast you aside, when you failed to speak. What if she were trapped, and felt safe in her silence.Maybe it led her to believe she could evade the violence. Did they think there was more, when she said she was fine? There was more to her story. There was a lot more to mine.

Sample Chapter

It filled me with hope and encouragement to write this letter to my unknown future husband. Somehow it solidified my belief that he was out there, but I now see how the desire to confirm that belief resulted in a naiveté that would later wreak havoc on my life.

To My Future Husband,

Hi! First of all, I want to say that when I marry again, it will be forever. It will be to my best friend, someone whom I completely trust. You will be someone who is honest, respectful, kind, and loving. I will screen you very thoroughly before we ever marry. You will have passed all of my very thorough questioning. For this, I will not be sorry, because if you are the man who captures my heart, you will be quite a lucky man, and surely, I will also be a lucky woman. I have been blessed with the ability to love, and when you finally arrive, I will be cherishing you.

The point of this letter is to let you know that when I marry, you, my future husband, will have all of my heart. Not part, not half, but all. I will give everything to you.

I also want to tell you that you are lucky in ways you may not yet realize. I have spent quite a bit of time learning about myself, and I know what I can bring to a relationship. I feel that I have a clear idea of what is required on the path toward a happy life. I know right now, as I sit here alone, that one day I will find you. We will have a great marriage, because I will commit myself to making it so, and, therefore, I will never settle for less. God would not give me less.

The potential to better ourselves and our relationship will always be present. I desire to have a marriage that is continually growing. I believe through self-growth, full disclosure, and transparency we will have the ability to create a very strong bond. It is my hope that by looking forward, we will continually place the building blocks of life on a solid foundation. I hunger for that, as much as I hunger for passion in marriage, life, and love.

Thank you for finally coming into my life. I thank God for knowing we were both ready for each other, for He has spent a lot of time preparing us for this moment.

I am happy. I know I am, because I know I will love you. I know you will be perfect for me, I also know I will be perfect for you. But right now, in this moment, as I write this, I am just waiting patiently until I find you…and I am so excited because I know this is going to be great.

Love, your future wife,
