Mrs. K and Children

3 January 2012 17 Comments

Mrs. K is separated from her husband. She left her home due to a dangerous situation of abuse. She has 6 of her children with her at this time. For privacy reasons, the ages of her children are not being disclosed, but they are all under 12.

She has a home business and is working it to provide for her children, but she is also looking for any means possible that will allow her to have a job and stay home with her children while they need her there.
She is currently in a home and working on her home business.
If you are interested in having your own home business, contact Karen at Changing Your Life.

UPDATE:

After returning from out of state helping her father after surgery and recovery, Mrs. K has found a few avenues for income and is working to make a way for herself and her children.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped me in the past when I first had to leave my home with my 6 children….It has been about a year since I had to walk away…It sure does not seem like it….I Realize now that I will not be going back to a man who chossen to never change.. I can only go forward now…

…It has been a very trying year for us…..”

My Story by Mrs. K
As of 1-2012, I have been married 23 Years. I recently had to leave my home due to an abusive husband. I tried so hard to stay, but I could not take it any more. For years, I tried to stay strong, but I became very depressed, and was just surviving. A person can only take so much. I thought it was all my fault, and I kept thinking things would get better, but they only got worse.

My husband started being mean to me, making me repent about things I did not even do, but I did it to just keep peace, because it was a very sad time. I thought he wanted a modest wife, but I was wrong. He was in to all kind of porn, and he would tell the children that I would be better off dead and that it would be a better world. I pray that some day, I can help other women who are still caught in a snare of hurting from their abusive husbands, and to know that there is no way out. It was a hard choice to make for me, but A change had to take place.

I am writing this after having been away for just a month. I went through so much pain before I walked away, and sadly, the children are very glad I did. I had thought that staying for the children was the right thing to do, but now I see it was not right. Our children had to suffer as well. If he said something, that was the way it was. He gave me no hope, and he would tell me, I was in rebellion, and I would be better off dead, and if he could kill me, he would. It would make the world a better place he would say.

I enabled him for years to live as he did, by taking up for him and covering for him. I tried to stand up and say things, but he would get mean. He had this submission thing all wrong about the wife, and I was not real sure how it went either, so I let him do whatever.

I am never going back to an abusive man who is not willing to get help, and who thinks he is right about everything. How sad it is that so many wives suffer this way, It is a very lonely road, when a wife has to run from her home.

    I’m new to this website. Someone from a Yahoo group I’m in posted the link. I’m sure I too might have some books that I thought we just had to have but never used. A homeschooling mommy of 5 accumulates stuff! Way too much stuff! I was also curious if you found a new place to live (you spoke about this back in March). Blessings.

    A Mom in need and feeling very down. A very trying two months… My van has been broke down for most of the two months, I got it out of the shop, And it drove for two days, Then last night I was out, and stopped to get milk, And the front part of the van started filling up with smoke, Really fast, I told all 6 children, get out now, I barely could get my van parked, And we all ran out, I thought it was going to catch fire…But it did not..We was two miles away from our home, And had to walk home at 9.00 last night…Not even sure now if it is fixable now…I have been trying to keep my hopes up in all of this..My last check was 100 and something working my home job. Sometimes I feel the odds are against me, But I am putting my trust in GOD to help me raise my children, It seems overwhelming. I know GOD did not plan for homes to be broke like this,, For moms to have to do this alone, But we are forced to. Am I wrong for feeling so discouraged? I try not to get this way, Then I start to thinking about everything, I feel like a failure at times. I may can get a used van on craigslist for 1000, I need to raise some money to do this. If any one can help with this. I would be so Thankful, My van that just broke down I got years ago for 1000 on craigslist, And it was good for 4 years.

Going slow right now… I can pick up a little hear and there..But it still does not Cover all of our needs, I am trying to find every way I can to stay at home and make it, Despite the problems I faced when I first left my home, With some just telling me to live a different life, And put my Children in School, And get a job…My Heart was pleading with GOD to help me not to do this…And he has….

    Needs we have

    Gas, For my Van, In which, At times, I am only able to put 10.00 in it at one time

    Toilet paper, Shampoo, Dish soap, On and on with this kind of Items, Food Items, Clothes, Shoes. Bills, ,And so much more…Everything helps.. I shop at most all discount stores to Save.

    Thank you very much for those who help me to be able to stay at home to raise my Children..It is very Important to me to be able to do this, And really it is the only way for me right now…

    Thanks
