I am a new member and a survivor. I'm 26 years old Texan, married 5 years to a beautiful wife and am the father of a wonderful 1 year old son. But, everyday I live with the effects of things that happened to me as a teenager (entering puberty --- a very vulnerable time).
My experiences are probably not as bad as some of you but they were sure strong enough to ruin my life for many years. My life is much better now that I have found peace through Jesus Christ but the memories of what happened and how I reacted are always fresh in memory.
Without Christ, I would not have survived. But, I still want someone to talk and open up to that I know has been through similar experiences and struggles.
