Description : Although love is the hallmark of humanity, it is not widely discussed in social work and other related professions with respect to its potential connection to abuse. In this groundbreaking book the author argues that, while love and abuse should not co-exist, they often do. Using a feminist narrative approach, stories about love, abuse, and social work are told with the purpose of understanding domestic violence and other forms of abuse. Based on interviews with 84 women of varying ages in Canada and Australia, the author shows how the pain and shame of intimate abuse can leave its mark on the bodies, minds, and souls of victims/survivors long after abusive episodes have ended. Additionally, Fraser also discusses the importance of hope, "enlightened witnesses," income support, and educational opportunities for women who refuse to renounce love relationships altogether, but are instead trying to foster relationships that are respectful as well as erotic.

God knows what we can handle but sometimes we forget what God can handle. As a father to a son and a mother to a daughter, love and faith is so strong and merciful. God is mercy and love, gentle but strong, he brings joy and correction, and he comforts the soul and gives correction. I feel that God has brought me through the trails and walked with me through many stroms to see who I was before I could see that which is ahead. Love From Above Hear My Cry and now Redeem, In the Name of Love has centered my heart even more towards God and His Son, Jesus Christ. As much as we try to find love, as we try to live a perfect life, and as we try to become that prefect christian we find that we need God even more. God has blessed me with so much but I still fall short of His glory, my heart burns with the desire to love Him that loved me first. God told me to keep my eyes on him. I pray that God continues to use me and these poems to touch your heart as they have touched mine.
