So many girls know the words you speak are their words and we share the same story of feelings of shame and fear. A disciplined life is therapy for a wounded soul. Take your heart and hurts and dreams and place them in the hands of your Creator! Joy and peace and victory is your prize!

Sorry this happened to yo. Don’t let it be a barrier. Move forward because you seem to be very brave and I know you can do this. Best of luck and prayers!

Jonell Adams

I am so sorry that you experienced that type of behavior. It is not your fault. He is the adult and knows better, the difference between right and wrong. You are starting the healing process from within. Native life has a lot to offer. Seek out yourself from your tribal elders and your higher power. Go back to the basics. You are brave and not alone. You are setting the tone for future Native girls. Be strong, first for you. Life is precious and a gift. This will make you stronger….stay focus. I will pray for you. I am so proud of you for continuing.
