Happy Sunday Family! It’s our special day again! Time to spend a little time with Jesus and spend a little time little ole with me. This week, I’m super excited to bring you an amazing interview I did of Retta Timmons, #SexualAbuseSurvivor. She’s warm, friendly, caring and uber transparent about the impacts of being molested and how she managed to move passed it and find a life of beauty and freedom. Were you molested? Maybe you know someone who was… Watch! Learn! Share!
As you know, I am for your emotional and spiritual growth – edutainment; not ever just entertainment. We must always be growing to be better people, better servants of the Most High and those with a Secret Story Success are obligated to share to benefit others. Retta is a living example. We laughed and giggled like we’d known each other our whole lives – like we were kindred spirits.
After watching, reply or tweet me @ThatAnitaLive and let me know what you think. Watch! – Reply! – Go!
Also, if you haven’t listened yet, my new free Confidence Booster audio download is uploaded and ready to go. Many people have read my personal stories and asked how did I survive. How did I survive my alcoholic father trying to kill me by attempting to burn the house down…three times! Yes, three times. Or how did I survive waking up to my brother beating his fists into my flesh and spending many nights sleeping in the streets because home was just not safe. Developing good self-confidence totally helped. Download the audio and let me know what you think. Click the link to download it.
Also, you all are my favorite people in the whole wide world so I’m letting you know first… I’m working on an eBook to illustrate how childhood trauma becomes dysfunctional adult behavior and how to go from a aimless life to purposeful living – #LivingUnashamed of Your Secret Story. I haven’t even started it yet, but I know you all will keep me accountable!
Peace & Blessings,
PS: Thanks a ton for your love!
