12 women… 12 stories of extraordinary recovery, survival, and testimony’s of healing: READ AND BE ENCOURAGED..

I was raped and had a baby at 10 years old
I was beaten and left for dead by my husband
The mental abuse I suffered from my parents was colossal compared to the hurt and pain I felt from my peers in school
My illness not only took away my dreams it took away my independence and my-self-esteem.
My husband left me for his step daughter
I was addicted to food, it was my stress reliever, my way of comfort
Pharmaceutical drugs were my way of disappearing from the troublesome ways of the world
I lost everything in the fire
I was attached and held captive for over a month
I am a single mother who survived a deep depression and post-partum so deep I nearly murdered my children
I am an alcoholic
I had to raise my siblings after my parents got up one morning left, to never return
These issues and so many more
But look at me now, I am a survivor, a hero, blessed to catch a glimpse of success, my recovery is a daily journey, my fight to heal, love, and happiness. I am woman breaking the chains my past and trials have bestowed upon me. I am a woman ART THOU LOOSED…free

Meet the Author

THE GRASS ROOTS FOUNDATIONS SURVIVORS WITH VOICES (SWV) AND THE JOURNEY HEALING PASSAGES ARE PARTNERING WITH THIS PROJECT.

“Though I walk through the valley,of the shadow of death I will fear no evil…”

This is where it began, “The Rebirth of my Soul.” I walked through fire and lived to tell about it. Only that was just the tip of the iceberg. My entire life changed. I survived yes, but the pain of it all appeared to be unbearable. The journey back to health became intertwined with the road to defining and reconstructing my individuality. Once reborn, the true test came, life itself….

In the memoir of “The Rebirth of my Soul,” Series Author Aija M. Butler shared the trials and tribulations of healing and recovery. During this journey, she realized that sharing her stories of rehabilitation after her illness, helped to inspire and motivate others. Soon, the Rebirth series, encompassed all walks of recovery, in “Life Honestly after, Born Again the Resurrection” Aija touches on the many ups and downs of rehabilitation, life after…the death of a loved one, illness, divorce, abuse, the list goes on.

In the development of The Journey, with partner Lj. Thomas this grassroots organization partnered with Alissa Jones and her project Survivors with Voices, together they have developed not only a voice but a resounding roar, in inviting women to share their voices of healing, survival, and restoration. This is the first of many journeys. Welcome, to 12 women sharing stories of remarkable recovery, survival, and redemption. From domestic abuse, loss of a child, to victims of violent crimes and substance abuse, read and be encouraged.
