Our Disclosure

A Cry for Justice is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

If we give a book title as a link to Amazon and you click on the link and purchase the book, we receive a small percentage of the retail price (around 4 – 6%, depending on volume of sales we engender per month).

The money we raise from being Amazon Associates will go towards paying the annual WordPress fee to keep the blog free of ads and to maintain a unique URL (cryingoutforjustice.blog) for the blog.  Also for sending gift copies of helpful books to victim-survivors who are in financial difficulties, and to purchase other authors’ books that we want to review on this blog.

  1. Do you have a blog post on what “coming along-side” and supporting an abuse victim looks like? My church doesn’t really ‘get it’ and I’m so messed up, I’m not even sure what I need, I just need support and everything I read says, “get support”, but what would that look like? I know they aren’t supposed to ‘rescue me’ or tell me what to do, but do you have any blogs on defining ‘support’?

    1. Welcome to the blog. 🙂

      I changed your screen name to ReachingForSupport as a precaution (it’s not a good idea to use your real name on this blog unless you are well and truly safe). If you want us to change your name to something else, just email The woman behind the curtain: twbtc.acfj@gmail.com — she will be more than happy to assist. 🙂

    2. ReachingForSupport: Yes, I totally agree with what you are asking for! The lack of support provided by my church made me feel victimized all over again!

  2. Thank you so much for this website and its resources. I’m almost 2 years into my abuse recovery and still feel so broken and messed up I hardly know what to think and sometimes how to function. This site has been a healing place of green pastures and quiet waters as I’ve been learning not only try to live differently, but think and believe differently, I’m fighting to not completely lose my faith in the turmoil and so the compassion and wisdom here is stabilizing.

    1. Thanks for your comment and welcome to the blog!

      I checked out the article you mentioned but decided to not publish that part of your comment. The article seems to be good, apart from the statistics it quotes about the rate at which men suffer severe domestic violence; I question that statistic. I know some men are victims, but the way the article gave the statistics (without a properly linked citation) makes me dubious. And there was a man quoted in the article who I had not heard of before. I’ve followed his blog now and followed him on Twitter, to see if I think he is wise in what he says about domestic abuse.

      So…thanks for letting me know about the article. 🙂
