About a 6-8 months ago I had the pleasure to meet Secret Angel on WordPress.  We connected through our blogs.  Yet God always has a bigger plan doesn’t He?  Angel and I have similar pasts and she is an amazing woman with an amazing testimony. Today is her book release of THE WALKING WOUNDED.  I had the pleasure of reading her book and I highly recommend it. It is available for purchase today – her eBook is only $10!  Click on the image above and get your copy today!

Here is my Review:

Diana Rasmussen of Prayers and Promises: Worship Leader, Faith Builder, and Recording Artist

Secret Angel’s book “THE WALKING WOUNDED” has helped me to heal.  I read her poem on WordPress and it touched me right away.

SO MUCH HURT! SO MUCH PAIN!

“THE WALKING WOUNDED!” THAT’S THEIR NAME!

After reading her book, I can truly say that God is still in control, and He makes ways where there were no ways.  I found myself diving in to read chapter after chapter. And then I would have to stop and receive the healing that God put in her words.  Angel is so honest, so truthful about what if feels like to live in abuse.  She shares with such passion and emotion what really goes on behind closed doors with an Abuser. There were many times I just stopped reading and cried – for me and for her.

Angel also shares how God directed her every move to stay safe and get out.  Provision, protection, and deliverance – are all in her book.  Her story is an amazing testimony of what God can do when we cry out to him for help.  It touched my heart and gives me hope for the many, many women she will help set free.  I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is or knows someone in an abusive relationship.  There is healing here!

Secret Angel and I collaborated and released the song “WALKING WOUNDED” based on her poem. It is available at CDBaby and Amazon.

Walking Wounded

Verbal abuse, he thinks its ok;
So destructive, done everyday.
He tears me down, to a point so low.
Fear sets in, I’ve no place to go.

So much hurt. So much pain.
“Walking Wounded”, that’s my name.
Hidden deep, where no one sees,
Scars of abuse, but who’d believe?

Behind closed doors, the truth’s exposed.
His attacks, where no one knows.
The wounds are real, but he’d deny.
And I’m too scared, to testify.

So much hurt. So much pain.
“Walking Wounded”, that’s my name.
Hidden deep, where no one sees,
Scars of abuse, but who’d believe?

His words are swords, they cut so deep.
But God sees all, and He can heal.

So much hurt. So much pain.
“Walking Wounded”, that’s my name.
Hidden deep, where no one sees,
Scars of abuse, but who’d believe?

Walking wounded, walking wounded, walking wounded.

Who Are You Girl?

I had to laugh when I read today’s Daily Prompt:

Daily Prompt: Mix Tape Masterpiece

You make a new friend. Make them a mix tape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MUSIC.

That has been my mission, my goal so to speak.  I am a musician as many of you know.  God has opened doors for me to play every week at Janesville Apostolic Ministries in Janesville, WI with my husband, Bob.  We had a Church Dedication yesterday that was absolutely amazing. I’ll use another post for that.  Let’s just say Ms D had a blast singing and dancing!

I also write, sing, and record songs about breaking free from Domestic Violence.  Silent No More – that’s me.  Singing about what really goes on behind closed doors when you live in abuse.  Not to glorify what happened, but to raise awareness.  People don’t know what happens unless we tell them.  People can’t help the next woman out of abuse if they don’t know how or what to do next.
