Stories and Testimonies
by Those Impacted by
Philadelphia Church of God
It is not how many abusive details that a survivor can recount and describe in order for their story to be considered important. It is how the individual perceived their experience to be detrimental, or even life shattering, that counts.
Telling your story turns it into a history that can eventually be left behind and frees you to some extent, making it easier to create a new life for yourself. You have developed strengths because of all you have endured, and you are a unique individual with purpose.
Names have been changed for confidentiality, unless the author requests their real name be used. Stories are not necessarily listed in order received.
Not all stories submitted are posted and we reserve the right to refuse to post.
