This is Anastasia and this is “Her Story “. I dated a man for about 3 years. He was charismatic in the beginning and said all of the right things. He was in an out of jail and expected me to put my life on pause and wait for him each time that he got locked up. He was emotionally abusive and narcissistic toward me at times. I went back and forth visiting him in jail and putting money on his books. Eventually he got out of jail but got shot 7 times. He lived but then I found out that he had not 1 but 2 baby mommas behind my back. I was in so much pain. I felt like a thousand knives pierced my heart. Through spiritual cleansing I was able to find healing. God helped me to break the soul tie and I am no longer in that relationship. Despite living through these circumstances I am a survivor. I am now happily engaged to a man who loves God and treats me with love and respect. We are planning our wedding right now. Now I am walking into my mission that God has for me and I feel so blessed. My book "Dweller In The Valley: Wounds Of An Emerging Queen" depicts many stories that women in unhealthy relationships can relate to, especially those in relationships with incarcerated men. My book is set to release on March 30th, 2019. Ana The Life Coach, LLC is my Christian mentorship program that I use to teach women to Connect, Create, and Crown. I teach women how to Connect to Jesus Christ, Create their dream careers and Crown themselves because they are queens. With my women's ministry MSCOC my business partner and I teach women how to breakthrough toxic strongholds and locate their God-given purposes with our podcast. That’s #herstory so what’s yours ?
