  • For the first two years after losing my daughter Brandi to domestic violence I stumbled, crawled and literally staggered in the darkness. The anger that I felt towards the same God that I had spent a life time worshiping was confusing. I as a mother found myself angry at the WORLD, depressed to the point of suicide.

When I need extra help and encouragement to get through my day, BTS encourages me to keep pushing forward. BTS and the women I've met are truly blessings to me... They are my angels. - Ashley D.

  • I came across the BTS page when I was still very early in my journey last year. I have a Facebook page called "Support Melissa" and this page was created for my friends to all known updates about my condition at once. My older sister created it after I had been stabbed 32 times by my abusive ex boyfriend I had broken up with 3 months prior. Kristen messaged me one day on my page telling be about BTS.

  • I met my ex-husband in early February 2011. Like many abusers, in the beginning he was very sweet and attentive, constantly showering me with compliments and gifts. After only a few months of being together, this changed drastically. I was no longer allowed to spend time with my family or friends. I was afraid to speak without prior approval and I wasn’t allowed to be away from him without constant questions and accusations as to what I was doing and who I was with.

  • Kim KThe BTS team is an amazing group of people who are there to help us through all the trials and tribulations of DV. The retreat was an exhilarating experience that left me not only feeling loved, inspired, uplifted and rejuvenated, but I also gained life-long friends. We laughed, we cried and found out we are not alone. The journey gave me a peace of mind I had been seeking. (Kim K. – Dublin, Georgia)

  • I fell victim to my ex-boyfriend of almost 2 years last year. He got physical with me for a week straight after months of controlling me and fights that led to us breaking up. He has a lengthy criminal past so I knew he was bad news from the beginning.

  • “More than you know. You gave me courage and strength to stand up for myself and not take it any more. Thank you so much!” 

  • “I don't feel so alone anymore or like it's me and my fault.......THANK YOU” 

  • “You are doing such important work. Fantastic!”

  • I just want to let you know, that without this page, I wouldn't have known that I was being abused. Until I liked your page, I thought everything we fought over was all my fault. He really made me believe that. I have been reading your posts, and your fans comments. That is what taught me that I am an important person and that I deserve respect from everyone I know, because I give everyone I see with respect. I thought I was a horrible person and that I didn't deserve anyone better than who I am married to. I accepted the abuse and believed it was my fault. My head and heart are all scrambled right now, but obviously my priorities are not! No one can ever know the future, or "what might have been", but I strongly believe that if I hadn't liked this page, I would have stayed with him long enough for the abuse to progress into a truly life-threatening situation, whether he had began beating me, or if in a rage he shot me (he has many firearms), or if I had killed myself (he has many firearms). Please do not ever shut this page down, as I feel it very well may have saved my life. Keep the light on that others who are in the dark like me may see it. I can't thank you enough right now, but in the future, I intend to help as many others as I can in the very way that you have helped me: advocacy. Thank you, to me, this was very much worth your time and love.
