We have been speaking about safe relationships for several weeks. The reason I am sending this out is because I want everyone to be clear: You do not "stay" in a physically abusive relationship. You Stay in the protection of Christ.
Just to reiterate my opinion toward advising others about making a decision: there are many choices between staying with an abuser and divorcing them. Pray about it.
If you are dealing with this issue and would like someone to speak with. Please reach out to us and read the information daily.
