Domestic abuse is a huge problem. The statistics I read recently said that somewhere between nearly 1 million and 3 million women in the United States are victims of some kind of abuse each year. Chances are good that you know someone who has been abused by a spouse or partner.
One way to help is to be educated. Knowing the signs of abuse might just make the difference in a loved one’s life. It just might mean that you are moved into action…to encourage the victim to make the appropriate changes.
You’re going to learn another way that you might help on today’s show. I’m going to be talking to Claudia Harsh, spokes person for the 4th Annual One Voice Domestic Violence Community Awareness Walk, which will take place on Sunday, September 9th, in Cincinnati. It doesn’t matter if you are not in Ohio. You can still help. Listen to find out how.

Ephesians 5:25 – 28 (TMSG) 25Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church–a love marked by giving, not getting. 26Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, 27dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. 28And that is how husbands ought to love their wives.
