    My best human friend God ever gave me shares my first and last initials. She grew up abused by her oldest brother. She also worked with special ed students. I know now it was a God destined meeting. I always told her the truth about my past that I could remember at the time. We could pass for sisters, we even have a German ancestry. But other than we being Sisters in Christ, as far as we know of, we are not related. 

     In late Oct. 1989, Social Services asked me if I wanted to go back to my family and I decided to return to my mom. Since my time in the group home ultimately I got to visit my mom. I had been able to see my sisters, but not my brother up to that point. Now at 37, I question if I made the right choice. I came back to my mother and within a week, my stepfather rapes me twice before I told him to stop. And he does. Then the mind games begin, his foul mouth running, not caring who was present. He may have started to make a move on my little sisters after they came back home shortly before Christmas. 

     I just started to remember what he did to me by this point. I entered high school and the bullying had decreased greatly from the other kids, but what was going on at home was harder to cope with. More flashbacks were coming and it was getting to be too much for me. Especially when the monster was living under the same roof. It started with me walking out of the room whenever he came in. Since he didn't have my body, the mind games began. Asking me if I had any boyfriends and all while knowing I didn't. Though I went out on one date with a 20 year old but nothing happened out of that when I was 16. 

    It was October of 1993 when it all came out. Me and my mom got into it and she ended up going to the emergency room for a stitch in her face. I was 17 and a half when this happened. Left alone I called my aforementioned friend and she was shocked. Later she would tell me she knew something was wrong but wasn't sure. To this day I feel guilt for not saying anything earlier. Maybe if I had spoken up earlier, I could have spared my baby sisters this pain. There was a series of events that made my mom get me committed to a psych ward (again at Duke but a different unit) for a week and a half.

     I had sworn that if I ever found out my stepfather did this to any of my siblings, I would have killed him myself. At least castrate him. And I tried at least twice.

    I graduated from high school and did some vocational rehab. My mother never called the police, just threw him out of the house for a year or two. He lived in a boarding house and came back when the seizures were too much. He had actually come to my bedside and rubbed my leg. I know because I woke up and caught him doing it. 

   Part 5 next week

    In January of 1988,  SS shipped me off to a group home in Charlotte, NC. It was where troubled kids were taken in (some wards of the state and others who had things like behavior problems). This was my real first experience with "regular" kids. In 3rd grade, the authorities tried to place me in with the normal kids, but within the hour, the teacher's assistant had to be called to take me back. 

    My experience there wasn't bad. Therapy and not being cooped in most of the day was better. My foster mom came whenever she could to visit. Just days after my 12th birthday, the roommate I had dared me to kiss a boy and I did. My first kiss and it made me feel like everyone else for a brief second. We were a couple for a while until I left in August of that year. Also, after over a year apart, I got to see my mom again. She was amazed at how much I had grown, but became mad because of my hair being short.

     Well, I come back home to Durham and my foster mom. She tells me I'm being placed in regular classes from now on at school. "Mainstreaming" they called it.

    Seventh grade was the most difficult school year of my life so far. Ill prepared and not really prepped to be around the regular kids. At least twice a week I was in the office for fighting. I was lashing out and despite my attitude, the teachers saw something in me. Especially my language arts teacher, who I couldn't stand. By the end of the year, I had respect for him and the last time I saw him I was visiting to root for a friend at a football game there in 9th grade. In my senior year, I learned he contracted HIV and returned to his hometown on the coast and died there. 

     I had started dealing with my problems in therapy at this point. My main problem then and even now are about me putting up walls between myself and others. Sometimes now I seem to picture myself waking up in my room when I was with my foster mom and it's late at night. She's standing at the door like I had a nightmare or something. I don't know if it's a memory or something I reconstructed.

    At the start of 7th grade, I started to really attend church with my foster mom. She still attends it to this day. I met up with a woman who seemed familiar to me. I began to open up and we pieced together where we met before. It was on that psych ward at Duke almost a year earlier! 

    Part 4 (Coming soon, I'll try to post at least once a week)


wonder777

    I believe that to know me, I have give you a glimpse of where I came from. Good, bad and ugly. Maybe these first few entries will give you an understanding of who I am and I hope I can do this to the best of my ability.

     To continue, around age 5, my mother met the man who would be our stepfather (my older brother and sister and myself). He moved in after leaving his first wife and six grown kids.  They had one daughter and Mom was almost due with the youngest girl when they got married.

     Also at that time, he began to molest and eventually rape me. He was an alcoholic and that's part of the reason I don't drink or sleep around.  Sometimes I could still smell the beer like I was there during flashbacks. I was the perfect target being quiet and keeping to myself and all that went along with my autism.

    It went on until I was one month shy of turning 11 in 1987. Someone I knew reported our family to Social Services on suspicion of abuse. I went to stay with this person and her husband until Easter Sunday the next month when I told them I didn't want to stay with them anymore.  Within the week, I met my foster mother. It was 3 weeks before my 11th birthday and the picture stays with me to this day. Short, Michael W. Smith perm (If you see the pictures of him around that time you know what I mean), round-framed glasses. And a personality that was so sweet, my blood sugar goes up.That's the best way to describe her. The perm is now long gone and the glasses are up to date but the personality is still there.

    After going to lunch for 2 weeks, I moved in with her. I was her first foster kid and boy was I handful. Well, it was a mix of hormones and lashing out from the abuse.  I could still remember the trailer we lived in. Every detail is burned into my memory. I thank God for her and the person who called SS on us. No bitterness towards her. 

     The therapy began there. Then that summer I went into a summer day camp with "regular kids". I really began lashing out then. In July it was decided the best thing for me was to be placed in a psych ward at Duke Hospital. It wasn't too bad, though being inside most of the day was difficult. In October, the woman who would become my best friend came into my life. 

    I had health issues, both physical and mental. So I was under drugs to treat both sides of that. Anyway, back to my soon to be sister in Christ.

    I had gotten saved at around 7-9, right around that time frame. I just remember going forward at the altar call and getting baptized the next Sunday. Well, in October  0f 1987, I was sitting in the doorway of the room I shared when I saw sneakers before me. Looking up, there was a husky woman wearing blue jeans and a red shirt with dark shoulder length hair. Mine was lopped off into a short cut I hated.

    She was there to see someone, her therapist as I recall. We talked a little and hit it off. Then she had to go, that was the only time I saw her while I was on there. 

    I found Christian music on the local CCM radio station the next month. A brand new world opened for me there. They let us have a small battery powered radio with no problem. My foster mom was the closest person to family I had who was allowed to come up to visit. I began to trust her by this point. She worked at Duke and she came up after work.  

    I began to deal with some of my issues stemming from the abuse. I would later find out that my stepfather was suspected of molesting me, but they couldn't do anything about that. Being on that ward at Duke affected me in a way I couldn't explain. 

      Next week, Part 3- The group home and life with my foster mom. Are you hooked? Come back to read more. And yes, despite me not giving many details, this is ALL true. Maybe someone reading this may be moved to do the right thing, whether it's about telling about abuse, in their own life or save another. See you next time! Love Wonder777!

 Hello everyone. I would like to just say God Bless you for reading this and under my handle, I would like to try my hand at this blog thing. So bear with me here. 

    I was born in Durham, North Carolina in 1976. At age 2 I was diagnosed with autism because my speech was delayed and my mother took me to doctors where the diagnosis came from. But I finally talked at 3. I used to joke that until I was 3, I just didn't have anything important to say.

    I have an older brother, older sister, and two younger sisters. We were all raised by a single mother. I never knew my biological father and know only a few details about him.  Though I have an interest in tracking down family from that side. 

    Not a lot I really remember before the age of 5. The first real memory I have was fracturing my wrist back then. Even after that, memories of my childhood are hard to come across. Sometimes I have something to trigger my memory. A story or object can help. Some memories I have reconstructed by the accounts of others.

 I hope this piques your interest! And I pray you will come back for more and future blogs may help you in the trials of your life! God Bless. Wonder777.

The Church Uncensored Google+ Hangout with the World Impact Collective discuss The Catholic Church and it's Influence Today

by madgeniusbiz | on May 15, 2013





 





The Church Uncensored is asked about The Catholic Church and about it's Influence in the World Today.

 

Watch the Google Hangout on The Catholic Church VIDEO here...

Can You hear me now? Yes Mr. World Impact Collective we can hear you!

So our topic got changed on us the day before we recorded this. The plan was to have a panel of Cancer survivors speaking about their battle and stories... Well that has been post poned so we picked the topic of The Catholic Church!

None of us are Catholic lol and I actually hardly ever think about the topic. I really never knew I was so Pro-Catholic Church lol.

The Catholic Church Influence Today

Roger starts with his experience with The Catholic Church

3:55 Roger has a Protestant background and says he had a lot of misconceptions. His first experience was when he was apart of a singing group called the Celebrant Singers  and they went to a lot of Catholic Churches.

5:40 Roger talks about his experience with Nuns in India. These Nuns worked and prayed all day!

6:10 Roger tells a hilarious story about alittle 4 foot nun

Nick Rodriguez talks about his unique views about The Catholic Church

10:00 I get to take over and I come straight in lol saying that there is no different "churches" that me and Jesus view the entire body of Christ as One Church! I would even include the whole world but that would have been off topic lol

11:00 I talk about how I see the Protestants not seeing the Catholic Church History as their own. This is a huge dis-service to them. The Catholic Church was around 1500+ years before the Protestant churches were even "born".

11:35 I praise the Catholic Church for feeding and helping more people than anyone else ever! I think the bad is always highlighted and we miss out on seeing a lot of the good.

Jason Rodriguez from The World Impact Collective speaks about The Catholic Church

14:40 Jason from the World Impact Collective speaks about his ideas about The Catholic Church. Talks about his belief that there isn't one church that is THE church.

Matthew Chapter 12  Daily Simple Bible Study  Jesus Eats and Heals on the Sabbath and the Pharisees want to kill Him

 

Watch the Matthew Chapter 12 VIDEO here...

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the Greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture.

I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Priests desecrate the Sabbath and are innocent?

So Jesus is desecrating the Sabbath and when He gets caught He throws David and the Priests of old under the bus. Saying the were innocent. It's just verses that never jumped out at me before. Let's read the scripture... Matthew Chapter 12...

Matthew Chapter 2 verses 1-12

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone. Matthew Chapter 12

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

1At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain and eat them.

2When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, "Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath."

3He answered, "Haven't you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?

4He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread-which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests.

5Or haven't you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent?

6I tell you that something greater than the temple is here.

7If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the innocent.

8For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."

9Going on from that place, he went into their synagogue,

10and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to bring charges against Jesus, they asked him, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"

11He said to them, "If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out?

12How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath."

13Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other.

14But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus.

Jesus is dismissive of the Law and Labeled a Rebel

Ok so maybe this isn't a big deal for us, post-law Christians but Jesus is really rocking the boat here! Ok so the Sabbath was and is like a huge deal to the Jewish folk. Like really serious business or lack of business really. You aren't supposed to do practically anything!

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 12

I'm not going to get into explaining ALL the RULES that they have for the Sabbath but there are a lot and most used to be punished by death!

I didn't list the next verses in this chapter but Jesus breaks another of the rules about the Sabbath oh wait I did put the verses about Him healing and getting in trouble for doing that too lol!

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 12

Jesus is a wanted criminal because of His lack of Sabbath Etiquette

Ok so Jesus was raised a orthodox jew lol He was some think a Rabbi. He should have known how to behave on the Sabbath. There was no excuse for the picking the grain on the Sabbath like this guy Jesus could go 40 days without food lol!

Even the healing of the guy He coulda done one of those fancy healings, "Go down to the sea and dunk yourself in water the allotted many times for on the Sabbath... and when the sun goes down and the Sabbath is over you will be healed"! Easy solution there Jesus, even i'm not God and I figured that one out :)

Matthew Chapter 12 verses 4-6 What are you saying Jesus?

4He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread-which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests.

5Or haven't you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent?

6I tell you that something greater than the temple is here.

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 12

[Praying] Jesus are you just being a rebel for the fun of it? What is it that you are wanting to point out? What are you saying here in Matthew Chapter 12? What do you mean they were innocent...

Please always  leave a quick comment...

Matthew Chapter 2 Nick Blog Daily Bible Study God speaks through The Occult and Sorcery

by madgeniusbiz | on May 13, 2013





 





Matthew Chapter 2  Daily Simple Bible Study  God speaks through The Occult and Sorcery

 

Watch the Occult and Sorcery VIDEO here...

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the Greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture.

I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Sometimes God speaks more clearly through the Occult, Sorcery, and Astrology than through Scripture.

I see this weird fear from most Christians towards the Occult, Sorcery, Astrology, and Magic? Why? God speaks through and uses these things sometimes instead of the bible or prayer. Don't believe me :)  let's read the scripture Matthew Chapter 2 ...

Matthew Chapter 2 verses 1-12

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone. Matthew Chapter 2

The Magi Visit the Messiah

1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem

2and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him."

3When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.

4When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born.

5"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:

6" ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,

are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;

for out of you will come a ruler

who will shepherd my people Israel.'

7Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.

8He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.

10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.

11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

12And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

God used Astrology to invite Sorcerers to His son's birth!

Nick blog bible study mathew chapter 2

Here in Matthew Chapter 2 verses 1 and 2 we see that "Magi" came to Jerusalem. Ok first off Magi were not "Godly" Jewish priest lol. Most likely they were priest from a religion called Zoroastrianism. More info here on that... They were not "Christians, or Jews" lol

We have this vision of 3 wise kings that were from a different part of the world but they were still Jewish at least right? Noooooooo! They weren't. Are you ready for this? They were actually where we get the name Magic from. Directly associated with the occult. The word is Greek I think lol look at me getting all fancy ;)

Here in Matthew Chapter 2 It's the same word used to describe the people Daniel dealt with and lead as the leader of the magicians. Dan 2:48

Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men.

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 2

So maybe not the type of people you would have hanging around your new born baby? These guys studied Astrology, they were renowned across the world in their field.

What is Astrology? This is from Wikipedia

Astrology consists of belief systems which hold that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes that claim to explain aspects of a person's personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other planetary objects at the time of their birth. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations.

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 2

Matthew Chapter 2 Says nothing about there being 3 wise men...

Switching gears for a second here lol just because I like getting people to think. Ask any Christian how many wise men were there in Matthew Chapter 2, and I would guess 99% would say 3.

However the bible doesn't tell us how many wise men there were.

Historically there was probably 12 in the group.

So why do we all think 3? Because we have not learned to question yet... Stick around with me and i'll help you learn to question everything you ever believed! Lol and it's not to disprove of your beliefs it's the exact opposite! It's so you know what is really true and how you can prove that!

Most think 3 just because of the mention of 3 gifts. :)

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 2

God speaks through whatever the hell He wants to :)  Even the Occult, Astrology, or Whatever else you think is from the Devil

So Matthew Chapter 2 verse 2 we see the answer to the question of how did these "Magi" astrology sorcerer guys find Baby Jesus? It says

and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him."

So these guys were doing their little Astrology stuff lol and poof God showed them the revelation of the Son being born and where He would be born and they were lead by this "Star". Now we know stars don't move maybe it was a supernatural event or perhaps a "Planet" and not a star at all...

The point is We have ZERO RECORD of anyone reading the scripture and finding Baby Jesus. These Heathens and Sorcerers found Him by God's leading. The lowly shepherds got a special invitation too however not from reading the scripture...

God is speaking and leading people in ways that you don't even know or would even believe that God would be involved or among such horrible things...

Thinking about Matthew Chapter 2 [Praying] God help me to be open to how you romance people in the way that they can receive and hear, teach me how to do the same...

Please always  leave a quick comment...

Let me know your favorite verse of the day or go ahead and leave a huge dissertation on your own insights in the chapters of the day. We can all learn from each other and have great discussions in the comments.

The comments are also an excellent place to ask questions and I will answer them as best I can personally! What do you think about the all this astrology stuff? What do you think about this chapter, what do you draw out of it?  Comment below...

The Church Uncensored Hangout What does being a Manly Man look like in the Church? Ep2

by madgeniusbiz | on May 11, 2013





 





The Church Uncensored Hangout Ep 2

 

Watch The Church Uncensored Hangout VIDEO here...

The Church Uncensored Hangout

We sit around at star bucks or Applebees and discuss the issues of the day so we decided to instead jump on Google Hangout and hit record.

This content is unedited and no set topic. We talk about the tough questions and topics that lots of people won't even touch! We want you to join us! Whether you believe similar or different than we do. If you want to join us from time to time or just once let me or Roger know through Facebook and we will invite you sometime!

We had a question this week from Joshua Manuhwa about peer pressure among the youth and how they can not be affected by it.

3:00 I read the peer pressure question and let Roger answer it first lol

He talks about how just by growing close to God that it naturally affects the way he lives his life. The relationship or the value of that relationship that keeps him making good choices.

He says something at 6:50 that I love! Watch and hear it from his mouth!

7:45 I give it a go lol. I talk about being raised in a Christian really conservative family. I talk about that I was scared to death to do anything wrong lol

9:00 minutes I expand on why maybe that might not be the best way to go about it lol

11:40 I speak about my Automatic Response to the LOVE Being!

14:50 I mention how God almost pleads to us not to do things that will hurt us...

16:30 we stop trying to scare the hell out of our kids.

17:35 I recommend the book by Danny Silk. It's called "Loving your kids on purpose?"

The Church Uncensored Hangout

What are some Bible Verses that you think speak about peer pressure?

We tackle the Wussification in the Church lol

The Church Uncensored Hangout

23:15 Next topic and or question lol.

Is based off a Google Hangout here... We mentioned the lack of brotherly love in the church, and even in the western culture.

Roger mentioned that in India men put their arms around each other and hold hands and it's not a big deal.

27:51 I ask Roger about "Being Manly" He starts off talking about Jesus being Badassed lol

Jesus got his butt whipped and hung on a cross almost about to die and He didn't say a word. How many of you manly men have gone through that?

Jesus loved like a man and He served like a man. Roger expands here...

33:00 Roger talks about being a MMA Fighter and a Boxing Coach before, but then says that the ability to love and be gentle is much more Manly!

34:10 Nick takes over talking about his struggles with being manly.

I talk about how it's been hard on men to know how to love because their own fathers were harsh and mean. So most dads are trying as best or hard as they can...

35:00 I tell the tractor story about my dad here...

39:20 I talk about the decision to be a Manly Man as a lover and compassionate!

Mary jesus feet

A Manly Man get's down in the dirt with the prostitute

41:50 I talk about my sweet sweet boy. And how he reveals to me how to be manly...

45:00 Roger jumps back in with another point about being the same no matter who is around... That's another Manly thing...

45:55 I begin to pray and speak to whoever is watching and edify them...

Praying for a generation of kids who do not know their fathers...

48:00 If you have been abused by your father or a man, if you have been shamed by a man or verbally just ripped to shreds then you need to watch this here...

53:00 Roger closes up shop for us...
