Join me on my youtube channel - Barbara Lane, Author.
Primarily, I am an advocate for children, as documented in Lucy's Story (listen in on my podcast FICTITIOUS TRUTHS-Barbara Lane wherever you get your podcast.) But...
I am also a Nondenominational Ordained Ministerial Counselor. On this channel, I will share with you the tests of faith I have been through, the dark nights of my soul and the benefits I have received from experiencing both. I will also tell you stories of inspiration, motivation and joy, such as when God reunited me with my 10 sisters after 40 years of separation.
I have been blessed to work with individuals from all walks of life: all religions, cultures, creeds and economic standings. While some were well-known personalities in sports, research and politics, all were equal in my sight. They all touched my heart and soul and taught me many things.
As such, my beliefs, though rooted in Christianity, are interfaith in nature, seeking to understand what God is teaching us through other religious traditions. I believe that it is through understanding our differences that we can join together to create a more moral, peaceful and just world.
Here is an intriguing look at a type of child abuse we hardly hear about: parental alienation. Listen as expert Dr. Foderaro shares of her knowledge, and her own experiences. Marni offers clarity and hope, shared with compassion and love to help aid the recovery from domestic violence, narcissist abuse, and alienation. Author of six books on spirituality, self-introspection and healing. You can find Marni's books on Amazon or by visiting her website: http://godcametomygaragesale.com
It's hard to think about issues of child abuse, let alone when our youth are betrayed by clergy members--AND--its even harder when we think about people in power covering up the occurrence of child abuse by clergy members rather than dealing with it honestly. Listen to Attorney/Author Mark Bello present his experience representing in court 2 young boys abused by clergy. You will want to listen as well as read his books dealing with social justice.
