Inspirational Testimony

A story of healing as told by a Stronger than Espresso small group leader. 

“AS A STRONGER THAN ESPRESSO LEADER, I’VE SEEN THE IMPACT OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. THE INSIDIOUS NATURE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, NO MATTER THE FORM, GOES BEYOND THE INITIAL ACTION, TO DAMAGE THE SELF-IDENTITY OF A PERSON.

THIS IS WHERE I’VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE POSITIVE IMPACT OF STRONGER THAN ESPRESSO. IT HAS THE ABILITY TO TAKE WOMEN WHEREVER THEY ARE ON THEIR JOURNEY, AND HELP THEM REBUILD THEIR LIVES FROM THE INSIDE OUT. IT RESTORES THEIR IDENTITY, ABILITY, AND POSSIBILITIES, IN CHRIST, AND AS THEY GO OUT INTO THE WORLD. I’VE BEEN BLESSED TO SEE AMAZING TRANSFORMATIONS IN ALL AREAS OF THEIR LIFE – PERSONAL, FAMILY, CAREER, AND COMMUNITY.

OUR BEST CELEBRATIONS ARE WHEN OUR “STRONGER” WOMEN COME TO A MEETING AND TELL OF THEIR VICTORIES IN DEMONSTRATING ASSERTIVENESS IN AN AREA OF THEIR LIVES. WE ALSO AFFIRM THEM WHEN THEY HAVE THE “GIFT” OF A LIFE LESSON. WE KNOW THAT GOD NEVER WASTES AN OPPORTUNITY!

ONE OF MY GREATEST JOYS IS WHEN OUR PARTICIPANTS HELP EACH OTHER IN THE GROUP BY REINFORCING WHAT THEY’VE LEARNED DURING OUR MEETINGS. AND YES, I’VE DANCED AROUND THE TABLE IN THESE MOMENTS! I CONSIDER MYSELF BLESSED TO BE A LEADER AND TO BE ABLE TO HOLD A SPACE OF SAFETY, LISTENING, NON-JUDGMENT, AND ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE SAKE OF HEALING.”
