I recently had the pleasure of joining Rachel Adams on The Love Offering podcast.
The Love Offering features stories of women who are living out their faith in love to God, others, and even to themselves.
My appearance on her show is for a special episode for Domestic Violence Awareness month.
From this episode: "As a retired lieutenant colonel, I can personally attest that domestic violence does not discriminate. Anyone, regardless of race, age, socioeconomic status, or education can fall victim to these horrors."

Show notes courtesy of Rachel Adams:
Today is not an easy conversation, but a necessary one. October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. In the United States, one out of four women will experience severe intimate partner physical violence in their lifetime and nearly one in ten women in the United States will be raped by an intimate partner during her lifetime.
Sue Parisher is on the show today courageously sharing her story of domestic abuse to create awareness as well as provide resources for those who might be in abusive situations currently or still trying to heal from one in the past.
Join us as we discuss:
Hi, I'm Sue
Welcome to my blog! I served twenty-one honorable years on active duty, living a double life of capability and accomplishment in the service while enduring brutality and abusiveness in my twenty-one year oppressive marriage. Today I'm happily married and have three children who are my inspiration and motivation.
My goal is to help combat the lies of abusers with the truth of God. I hope you find my words to be healing and helpful through your own life experiences.
Being separated from my abusive husband didn't make me a domestic violence survivor. It surely didn't release me from the grip of his brainwashing control and the innate power he had on me.
