Good episode? Give it some love!
Tonight's special guest is Amber Johnson Smith, a returning NAASCA family member from Orlando, Florida, 32 years old, and author of a new book, 'When In Life Battling With The Enemy Remember But GOD'. Amber says the list of abuses she endured in life is long. "I've been through family abandonment, rape, domestic violence abuse, verbal, mental, narcissistic abuse, young pregnancy, premature labor, and health complications. I have even ran into a romance pimp. I only survived by God's grace and mercy for me and my children." Amber has sent us an extensive list of her life experiences. She goes on, "I was lost. Life had sucked me in. I was almost at my breaking point after almost losing my life for the 3rd time and then GOD stepped in teaching me self-love, self-worth, how to love others, how to trust again and how to be happy again. But the most that I love is peace. It's everything I've written in a new autobiography about my life. I hope to inspire and motivate others on survival skills, just like God has given me. I am strong enough now to identify what I need to see and how I should move in life. It's nobody but God who gives me the sense enough not to use drugs and heal my pain I don't have to entertain the enemy. I am in charge of my happiness and I stand firm on that with God. I am changing to heal me, showing my kids what I wasn't shown in life, the right way to live life. IT'S ONLY UP FROM HERE AND I'M NOT LOOKING BACK. I'M DESTINED TO HELP OTHERS GET OUT OF DARKNESS."

Stop Child Abuse Now

Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) feature trauma informed HOSTs and Co-hosts and respected child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocates. They're all volunteers members of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Founded in 2009, NAASCA.org was originally a grassroots effort. It was launched based on our founder Bill Murray's personal life experienced. Bill wrote, "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping." He continued. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects." After years of operating as a grassroots effort, NAASCA became a public charity in 2015 .. a 501(c)3 .. but we receive no grants or outside support, and belong to no other organization. There are no dues or fees. Our MISSION is entirely self-sustaining through the volunteer contributions of our members. The single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. There are now nearly 3000 BlogTalkRadio shows, podcasts in the ever-growing library. Join us five-nights-a-week (Mon to Fri), at 8pm EST (so 7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution-oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. The shows always include panel discussions and call-in participation.
