Not in Vain A mother's Diary and Memoir about Her Daughter's Death
3/23/2009 6:24:27 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

After the tragic murder of our oldest daughter by her husband, I was compelled to do something to help other victims of Domestic Violence. I have been forced to be an advocate against a horrible crime that I did not know existed. Not wanting my daughter’s death to be in vain; I have had a God driven force to tell our story and hopefully reach the law enforcement agencies to make them realize how horrible Domestic Violence is and that they should take Domestic Violence calls seriously and as a crime, not just as a disturbance. My hope is to reach other victims and to help all communities understand that we can stop Domestic Violence if we work together.

Shortly after our daughter’s death, I realized that if I could tell our story and could get it published I could help other families from going through the horrible senseless pain that our family has endured. Right away the title came to me “Not In Vain”. I was not sure what God wanted me to do with it until I started reading my journal, my notes and listening to my tape recordings of the events. It was at that time, I realized that this man not only murdered our daughter, he almost killed my whole family. After years of separation and pain, our family did survive.
Everything changed in May of 2004. Our lives changed forever!

I have had the great privilege of doing many speaking engagements since the publication of my book. I have been to different communities to spread the word of how we can stop domestic violence. I am wanting to do as many speaking engagements as possible to help stop this horrible crime. My target now is on Jr. high and Sr. high schools. These young people need to know the signs of domestic violence before they start dating! Anyone out there that would like me to reach your children, please contact me!
Together, we can stop domestic violence! Thanks a bunch!!
