Min. Bruce L. Powell: “We can live God-fearing lives to be an example of the love of the Lord. By doing this, we can lead others to walk in the peace of God; thereby overpowering the impulse to violently assault someone.”

 

Gilles Noutcha: “Men need more counseling on how to address anger and frustration in a different way. They also need to be made more aware of the impact of their violence on their families.”

 

Cynthia Hunt: “This is my season for coming out of darkness. I too was a victim (of domestic violence) as well as a victimizer. I would like God’s Chosen Vessels to know that they can turn to Jesus whenever you need someone to lean and depend on. Christ is the answer. Ask and seek. The Holy Spirit will open doors for you.”

 

Tamala Redmond: “Our community can help prevent domestic violence by first coming together to pray for each others’ needs. Second, we need to teach people how to utilize their gifts, talents and skills. Third, we need to find excellent, real people who have survived domestic violence to teach them how to forgive their past hurts so they don’t carry that over to victimize others. We need to give the victims and the abusers the tools to invest in themselves. Last, we need to focus our time on loving them and showing them they can learn how to be responsible citizens without having to harm one another.”
