As he pulled her towards the car, she grappled with what to do to not only save herself, but also protect her family, especially since he had a gun and was unwilling to listen to reason.

These heart-stopping memories are what begin the empowering autobiography of author Doris Rivera-Black, Clothed in Strength, which recounts her tumultuous relationship and escape from her ex-husband, James.

Doris was a young mother with two little girls, when she met James, a charming and considerate co-worker who seemed to be the "perfect husband". He was supportive during her training to become a deputy sheriff. However, once the two wed, issues with being controlling and manipulative began to surface in James. James's true character was being revealed to her.

On June 26, 2006, after a brief separation, things took a dangerous turn. James kidnapped Doris after her work shift ended and held her hostage for hours. In the midst of her kidnapping, Doris realized whom she needed to cry out to for help, God.

This turn of events showed Doris she needed to re-establish her relationship with God and let Him lead her path, seeing that her story could be used to help others find freedom from abuse and ridicule.

Doris has made it her personal mission to share her story in an effort to help others. She has appeared on The Oprah Show, Focus on the Family's Daily Broadcast Show, and numerous media and radio stations to share her empowering story.
