CROWNED WITH JOY
THE MISSION OF CROWNED WITH JOY
Adultery. Shock. Disbelief. Divorce. This can't be real. This can't be my life.
You are not alone. The betrayal, grief and loss you are experiencing is overwhelming, and it consumes your thoughts.
I have felt it too.
You may be wondering:
Will I even survive this?
Is there anyone I can trust?
Will I ever feel joy again?
The answer to all of those questions is YES! No matter how you feel in this valley today, the truth is:
You can flourish!
You can learn to trust your gut (the promptings of the Holy Spirit)!
You can be Crowned With Joy!
The mission of Crowned With Joy is restoring shattered souls after Betrayal Trauma & divorce.
Spiritually, I believe Betrayal Trauma and Complex PTSD shatters a person's soul, which is where our identity resides. Once a soul is restored, true identity can be restored. When that happens, the shattered one is transported from a captive victim to a free and flourishing overcomer who is empowered for joy-filled Kingdom living!
My passion for the Crowned with Joy blog is to be a safe space for you to encounter God's love and truth so your shattered soul can be made whole again!
WHO AM I?
Welcome! I'm Sandi, and I am so glad you're here!
I am a Spirit-filled woman of God whose soul and identity was shattered by Betrayal Trauma, also called Sexual Addiction-Induced Trauma (SAIT). I've spent the past five years purposefully pursuing wholeness, and the Lord put my shattered soul back together. My identity was restored from a rejected and hopeless captive to a free and joy-filled overcomer in Christ!
During my journey to freedom, women saw my transformation and began to approach me privately for guidance. Like me, they found a gap in safe and informed support for women whose marriages ended after sexual betrayal. So, I decided to create this blog as a resource to empower more women in restoring their identities after the trauma and grief of betrayal, abuse, and divorce.
I pray that you will find this site to be an uplifting and safe place to encounter God's love and hope.
My passion and mandate are to share God's truth in order to restore shattered souls and identities in women after Betrayal Trauma and abuse.
In 2017, I received a BA in Applied Behavioral Science. I am also a Certified Life Coach and a trained Domestic Violence Advocate in the Church. I am completing a year-long Faith Based Domestic Violence Advocacy Certification Program. I have also received advanced training for inner healing and deliverance ministries.
WHY DO YOU REFER TO SERIAL ADULTERY AND SEX ADDICTION AS DOMESTIC ABUSE?
Serial adultery and sex addiction required your husband to repeatedly:
lie to you
cause you to question your accurate perceptions
cause you to question your reality or even create a false reality in order to make sense of his lies and manipulation
put your health at risk
expose you to Sexually Transmitted Infections without your knowledge
hide financial expenditures from you
withhold affection, time and resources from you and your family
cause you confusion from his "Jekyll and Hyde" behaviors
oppress you, and much more . . .
This is not a description of a difficult marriage; this is a description of domestic abuse, even if your ex-husband had never hit you. For that reason, I call it what it is.
