The Spiritual Abuse Survivor's Network

The Spiritual Abuse Survivor's Network June 7, 2012

Vyckie Garrison, Libby AnneBruce Gerencser, Sierra, and Melissa are all bloggers whose work exposing the evils of Christian patriarchy I have been enthusiastic about over the past year. Libby Anne has even become a personal friend and happily Bruce has started commenting here on occasion. They are now organized with others into what Vyckie has dubbed the Spiritual Abuse Survivor’s Network. Vyckie explains the goal of the network:

Through cross-promotion and collaboration, the Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network is a powerful way of supporting and promoting spiritual abuse survivors in our individual blogging efforts.  We are working together toward a shared goal of increasing awareness of this issue of spiritual abuse – the control, the confusion, the devastation, our struggles, our triumphs, our survival and recovery.

Rather than being territorial and sectarian (as was the modus operandi of the abusive religious groups from which we have escaped), the Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network employs the proven, non-abusive strategy of teamwork to gain more visibility for all the individual survivor blogs – in this manner, we make more of a collective impact on Google’s radar so that the search engines direct more people to read about this issue of spiritual abuse.

Recently, there has been a significant increase in the number of spiritual abuse survivors starting their own blogs – so many awesome, enthusiastic writers who deserve a significant platform! The Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network is committed to helping these survivors succeed.

Here are links for exploring the blogs of the Spiritual Abuse Survivor’s Network. Hopefully you can find resources to help both yourself and the suffering believers and the recovering ex-believers in your life:
