89: Tell the Truth – A Story About Domestic Violence

***Trigger Warning***

In this episode, Raychel paints a picture of what domestic violence looks like by telling it through the eyes of a fictional woman named Annie. This story represents every woman affected by abuse. Raychel also paints a picture of what it looks like to set down boundaries and have an exit plan when needed. And she sounds a battle cry for every She Who Overcomes at the end. It is a raw and emotional story that is for such a time as this.
