David’s Slingshot — New blog on our blogroll
David’s Slingshot is a new blog we recently added to our blogroll (found on the side menu bar). The anonymous victim who started the blog kindly wrote a synopsis of the blog for us. May you and your children be encouraged!
David’s Slingshot came about as a result of a desire to give encouragement and hope to women, and especially children, who have experienced domestic violence. My children’s eyes were completely opened to the true character of their narcissistic father after I filed for legal separation. In his efforts to hurt and control me through them, he began to psychologically abuse and terrorize them to a degree he had previously directed primarily toward me. They expressed their fear and pain and desperation through poems, art, music, and letters. Some of these they sent to people in the legal system whom they thought might believe and help them. I saved copies of as much as I could, and decided to share all of it through a blog, hoping God would use my kids’ words and art to help others in similar circumstances feel validated and to realize they are not alone.
