A quarter of all couples in the U.S. have had at least one violent incident. Domestic abuse survivor, Michelle Jewsbury invites you to hear some of her personal story and learn how you might be part of the solution.
Jewsbury describes one of many terrifying experiences that inspired her to be an advocate for education and change: “As my weak and battered body lay paralyzed on the mattress in her master bedroom, her boyfriend’s blood dripped from the lacerations on his hands onto my bruised and mangled face. Using what little energy I had left, I broke free from his grasp and begged God to forgive him for what he was doing and to make him stop. Paul simply laughed and replied, “God isn’t going to help you now.” In that instant, I saw my life flash before my eyes and wondered how I got there … again.” Now free from her abusive relationship, Jewsbury will sign copies of her new biographical book, “But I Love Him”. A percentage of proceeds from her book sales will benefit Unsilenced Voices, a 501(c)3 non-profit working worldwide to eradicate domestic abuse.
