Surviving Rape

Thank you so much for stopping by, I sincerely hope you will find some comfort within these pages. This site deals with the pain of finding out that your child has been sexually abused. Raped by someone who was trusted, and the struggle for survival and healing. Read our story and you will see . . . You really can survive if you take time to believe and let Jesus help you. This is painful to write, but I am doing this with a good feeling.   If I can help one person ~ if I can touch one life .... I am letting God be my guide as I do so. Please, join us as we travel our path ....

Surviving Rape

Surviving Rape
"I sat there in the car, watching the FBI bust the front door down with an ax. Wow, just like tv, I thought. What in the world do they think they are doing?"

"Little did I know that in just a few hours, my world would crumble around me. My life, and those of my sons, shattered beyond repair. This was a feeling I would live with for many months to come."


I had known evangelist "Brother Tony Leyva" since 1983, and had even worked for him. While I went to different towns to set up his tent, or to different churches to preach while he held revivals, my boys would spend weekends or even a week at a time with this preacher. I trusted this man and my sons looked up to him! He was like the dad they never knew, (their real dad was a alcoholic and abusive.) I remember thinking: "What better role model than this man of God."

We would go on mini vacations together, Disney World, Cape Canaveral, and occasionally out to dinners. I thought my life was wonderful, happy knowing I was doing the work of God.
All this time working together, there was not a sign of what was going on in the life of him or my sons.

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL ... This poem was written by Judge Roy Moore. Judge Moore was recently sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. After a lengthy appeal process the case has been dismissed and the Ten Commandments remain on display.
