and I’m so glad you made it over to my blog today! If we were at my house, I would invite you in to hang out and talk over a cup of hot tea. Don’t mind the toys all over the floor, my rambunctious, screaming toddler, and my girls interrupting every other word. So, let’s pretend, and come on in.
I began Make Time To Cuddle (MTTC) expecting it to be all about motherhood, and letting God use the pretty things from my life to encourage others. You know, making more time for my kids and such. I won’t say that there aren’t hints of that throughout, but God has taken something very real and ugly from my life and has asked me to share with others.
There is a real problem with hidden abuse, the kind that others can barely see until it is often too late. Many of us don’t even fully recognize it while living in it. There is a growing amount of information being put out about this issue, but I have yet to come across any Christians who present the subject through God’s light. My job is to pass on everything I have learned about narcissism, emotional, verbal and physiological abuse, and everything that goes along with it. The worlds view on these things holds little hope for anyone involved, but I want everyone to see the hope that God provides no matter the situation.
We are warned in 2 Timothy 3:2-5:
“For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.”
Aside from abuse, MTTC is for sharing what real, healthy relationships are made of. It’s hard to do better when we don’t know better. Let’s get down to educating, healing, validating, and most importantly, let’s get back to God.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.
What MTTC is NOT:
A place for medical advice. A place to bash or humiliate others, including abusers. A place for abusers to find and target new prey.
What MTTC IS:
Educating and enlightening people about narcissistic behavior, emotional, mental, and psychological abuse. Shedding God’s light, support, and hope for those who have been affected by abuse and those trying to support them in their education and healing. Sharing ideas of how to build effective and healthy relationships.
I am NOT:
A medical professional of any sort, a psychologist, psychiatrist, etc.
A child of God. A mama to two beautiful girls, and a vivacious boy. A writer, speaker, blogger, and cook. A lover of Jesus, my babies, my German Shepherd (Wes), hot tea, summer nights, roller coasters, and cozy conversations.
I would love to meet you and hear your story. Please share your life and your thoughts with me through my contact me page, in any of the comment sections here, or on social media.
