We have a powerful conversation to share with you today. We had the privilege to talk with our new friend Felicia McCurry. 

⚠️ Before you listen, we do want to give you a trigger warning for this episode. Details of domestic violence and attempted murder are discussed in this conversation. ⚠️ 

Felicia and Sarah share a commonality, both being from the south. They reminisce on what they miss about that part of the country before getting into Felicia's story. Felicia was raised in a home that was culturally Chrisitan. There were biblical values and conservative ideas held but the love and grace of God was not something that was shown or understood. She details her childhood and explains that her view of God was heavily influenced by her family environment and that wasn't necessarily a good thing. Felicia craved love and acceptance, and this led her to friendships and relationships that were not healthy. As she grew up, she sought validation and safety in relationships with men but because of the unhealthy patterns she experienced in her family life it led her to men that did not have good intentions. A cycle of finding herself in abusive relationships began. Each time she entered a romantic relationship she hoped it would be different than the last but more often than not it was worse. In the back of her mind, she still had her Biblical values and beliefs, but she was not in an active relationship with God. We appreciate Felicia's candidness in sharing where she was at and where these paths led her. Eventually she found herself married with children and this is where she experienced intense emotional and physical abuse at the hands of her husband. Slowly but surely, Felicia found herself drawing close to God - she needed Him so desperately. This all came to a head one night when Felicia almost lost her life. The Lord saved her, body and soul. That night changed everything, and we thank God for how He protected Felicia and her children. Though she is still healing, she now understands what a thriving relationship with Christ looks like and has hope for the future. We look forward to what God will do in her life and how He will use her.
