The Patterns of Spiritual Abuse

I recently watched the newly released documentary on Discovery+, “Hillsong: A Megachurch Exposed,” and also binge listened to several hours of “The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill” podcast. Both of these hit soooo close to home. It was as if they read my journals about the things I experienced for 8 years, and there... Continue Reading →

“Friends” & “Followers”: Balance in the Exposure
