Episode 9, Karen DeArmond Gardner
/

“God loves you more than he hates divorce.”

Karen is a survivor of a decades-long abusive marriage. What she eventually discovered is that God loves her more than he hates divorce. There is biblical evidence all throughout scripture that God does not condone abuse.

“Leaving an abuser is the beginning,” says Karen.   

 Healing from abuse is what must come next. It isn’t an overnight experience, but a journey, the beginning of finding the freedom God intends for each of His daughters. Karen De Armond Gardner sheds light for us, ‘full disclosure’, on the process of healing from long-term abuse.

It was a long road for Karen, abuse wasn’t a topic of discussion in our culture at the time and she didn’t have the resources that are becoming available today.

It’s why she has written a book, the book she didn’t know she needed.

Her heart is for women suffering the effects of abuse, if this is you or you know someone who is suffering, and you want to come alongside but don’t know how to help, please listen in as we discuss the realities of recovery.
