Trigger warning: Domestic violence
Wendee is a Christian who is an author, and we spend the first fifteen minutes of this conversation chatting about what that means for her when it comes to making decisions about what she writes and does not write, how she runs her business, and behaviours that she doesn’t take part in. We talk about a ‘typical’ day in the life of an author and we talk about Wendee’s conversion story.
The rest of the interview may be harder for some people to listen to. Wendee talks in depth about the abuse and manipulation she suffered in her marriage and how God helped her to get out of the situation. I hope that it is clear that we both don’t think that all non-Christians would behave this way or that her ex-husband behaved this way only because he didn’t know Christ. I also want to make it clear that I know some very loving relationships between Christians and non-Christians.
Wendee shares her story in the hope that it will help others who might be in the same situation to be able to understand what they are going through, and to be able to come out of it. We both don’t wish to glorify the pain in any way but instead to reach out to others to help them find hope in their situation. And to find the help they need.
