I can understand why you're scared, especially if threats are made against you. The most important thing is for you to keep you and your kids safe. You're strong and capable, and you want to do what's right. Scare tactics are being used against you.

In an article about abusive relationships (http://bit.ly/1gxDQSf), it reminds us that abuse victims often are afraid to seek help, but that's exactly what you need to do. You can call the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE for advice on what steps to take. Do yourself and your children a favor and get out of a dangerous situation. You're important. You're strong. You're courageous. You can do it.

Pausing to pray for you right now...
