Starting to do some work here

Thursday, November 12, 2009
Well, I'm finally starting to do a little work on this site. One thing I am seriously considering is changing the name of my blog. Because of the content I am hoping to post in the future -- specifically, any personal experiences of mine -- I am not sure I want my name attached to it. This is for my own safety, as I am afraid of certain people in my life running across it. 

For example, when I wrote the last post, I was at my parents' house. I was all excited about the news I had just read about Mercy, and said something to my dad about it, mentioning this blog. After I said it, I realized, "Ohhhh shoot! I mention my family in my paper! PLEASE let him forget what I just said!" Fortunately, since my dad hates computers, and doesn't really care about anything I have to say about Mercy (well, along with a lot of other subjects), I think I'm pretty safe. But the point is, I don't want to have to worry about being so careful about mentioning the blog, especially when I'm using it to try and get the word out about important issues! If my name isn't on it...even if I mention it in passing, no one will be able to find it using my name.

I'm still trying to come up with something good, but if you'd like to be informed if/when I do change names (as the URL will be changing as well), let me know!

Also, aside from my blog housekeeping stuff, I just found out that Mercy Australia is now CLOSED DOWN!!! Totally made my day. So I wrote about it on facebook and put a whole bunch of links up. =D

GREAT WORK, everyone who contributed to making this happen!! It's so great to hear. And it gives me hope that we can do the same in the U.S., and I want to do my part in making it happen.

It's a good day. =D

    Ive been searching for years, since I was kicked out of Mercy Tennessee in 2004 because I wanted to talk during counseling and didn't understand the praying and "teaching" they did, for someone who understands and not the whole laundry list of people who support the ministry without knowing how things really work inside closed doors. There was one person there with me who got the same warnings that I did, and was told "one more discipline and you will be asked to leave" just as I was. I was outside of my room past bedtime mopping the floors, and she was caught in her room on the bathroom floor cutting herself. I was given a discipline and a dismissal, and she was kept in the program, and today is given free cars from the ministry, free medical care when needed, and is the poster child for the ministry. I believe everything about this ministry is corrupt, and they keep people in the program who will benefit their popularity and story. I could say SO much more, but I won't. I just wanted to thank you for putting this out there, and thank you for understanding.

    I wish I had seen this blog before I sent my daughter to Mercy Ministries.
    She was there from March 2010 to March 2011. She developed false memories of sexual abuse (by me) there, and for now we have lost our daughter to the cult that is Mercy Ministries. Do you have any advice for me and my family???

    My daughter (while at mercy) went through regression memory therapy. False memories of sexual abuse by her father (and me encouraging it, so the story goes) developed. We haven't seen our daughter in over a year. There is a growing group of parents who have experienced the same tragedy. Contact Sarah's Collage (google it) to get in touch with us through Sarah. Thank you.
