Background Information

Hello my name is Yvonne Jones author of A Time To Heal The Struggles Of A Battered Woman. From the time I was a little girl all I ever wanted to be was a house-wife and a mother. I modeled my life after my mama who was in my eyes the best mother anyone could ask for. I was raised in a small community called Hoghair Louisiana which was about 20 miles from town, so I lived a very sheltered life. I grew up overweight with a very low self-esteem which later led to a series of bad choices. I married the first guy I dated, and although our marriage lasted for 8 yearsand we had one beautiful son, it still ended in divorce. About 20 years ago right after my separation from my husband, I met a man I thought was going to be the man of my dreams. He had 2 jobs when my first husband couldn't hold on to one, he treated me like a queen and was always willing to buy me and my son anything we needed. I was working at Wal-mart not making enough money to take care of me and my son so we had to move in with my parents. It was really hard on my dad having the extra mouths to feed because some of my brothers still lived there as well. It wasn't long before my new love was asking me to move away with him, he promised to help me get my divorce so we could get married as soon as possible. I was raised in church all of my life and knew that living together was totally against what God wanted for us as Christians, however hearing my daddy talk about how hard it was to make ends meet, I compromised my Christian beliefs and moved away with him. It wasn't long before I found out that this man who seemed to be the man of my dreams, would in reality turn out to be my worst nightmare. He started to abuse me and my son and although I did leave a couple of times, I became pregnant with his child, and went back as most women do.  The end result was the death of my 6 year old son. Mentally I had become like a little child, only doing what he told me to do. Because there was not alot of talk about battered women syndrome back then, I was arrested and charged with first degree murder. My sentence was later reduced but I was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to 21 years hard labor in the department of corrections. I was only in prison for 2 weeks before my state appointed attorney told me he was letting me go home so I could undergo counseling. It was duing this time that my counselor suggested that I write down my thoughts and feelings. I couldn't talk to my parents or other family members because they were going through their own personal pain, so I just started writing. I was home for 2 years going through counseling, evaluations, and having to endure the pain of my ex-husbands trial and mine. I was also visiting my son who was taken from me the day after my sons death. He was 5 weeks old at the time he was placed in foster care. During my time of incarceration I continued to write, and soon started writing not only my thoughts, but poems, songs and articles for a newsletter that a dear friend of mine asked me to write for her church. God brought me through a lot of pain during the first few years after my sons death. There were times that I was losing my mind, and suicide even crossed my mind at least once, but God had other plans.  Abuse is an ongoing problem all over the world and not many women are willing to share their stories. I wanted to share mine because the pain of losing a child is the greatest pain you'll ever face. Its important that teenagers, and anyone looking for a mate, know the signs of someone who could be a potential abuser. Its also important to know how to tell when someone you love is being abused. Most importantly, I wanted to let the world know that no matter what they are facing in life, that God loves them and he will always be there for them no matter what. He is only a prayer away and I am living proof that he can bring you through the worst pain you will ever face and still be sane enough to tell about it. My hearts desire is to get my book into the hands of every person who needs to know they have hope and there is help out there if you are willing to get it.
