Do you know what domestic violence includes? Or wondered where God is during a hard time? Meet Alice an Australian Christian mother, who lived through many years of domestic and family violence, before finally escaping it and beginning on a journey of self-improvement, re-building her shattered life. Through the book we join her as she goes through the highs and the lows of these difficult times, as well as glimpsing God's timing for Alice through-out it all. God's Timing Not Mine also contains an article describing what domestic violence entails as well as related poetry.
God's Timing Not Mine is an inspirational Christian book about Alice, an Australian Christian woman with a deep faith in God, who lived in Australia during the late 1900's. It is a true story about real people, places and events, however all the names have been changed to maintain anonymity and safety of those still alive.
During her early years, Alice witnessed and heard a lot about domestic and family violence, and vowed that she would never put up with it. Yet when she finally fled for her life from her husband, she found out she had indeed been a victim of domestic and family violence for many years, and is now a survivor. Alice shares some of her beliefs and values in this book, not to try and convince you to believe them, but so that you might have some idea as to why she made some of the choices she did.
Join Alice as she relates the journey she embarks on for self-improvement and the rebuilding her shattered life. Celebrate her highs as Alice shares her faith with others and someone acknowledges God for the first time, and finding somewhere to live. Also lament her lows as she struggles with losing a court case and so many of her personal possessions in property settlement. Travel with Alice along the undulating path of her life and see the peace that she has when life seems to be calmly sailing along for her.
Watch with Alice as she sees in the life of others and herself, God's hand moving in mysterious ways, opening and closing doors, and doing things in His time and way. She shares some of these times and ways from a portion of her life in this book.
Alice's story is not unique. Many people who are going through or have survived domestic and family violence will be able to relate to some part of what Alice went through. What they might not see is God's way and timing in their life. Alice hopes that in seeing parts of her life and how she saw God's way and timing that others may be able to look back and say - Yes! God was there for me too!
Also included in this book's appendixes is an article entitled,
What Is Domestic and
Family Violence? which gives a fairly detailed description of what it is and indicators that show domestic and family violence may be occurring in someone else's life; and a few relevant poems written by Kym.
Are you a living or have lived with domestic violence and wonder where God was? Why He didn't help? And if He really cares about you? Try taking a step back and looking at the big picture like Alice does in this book, and maybe you too can find the answers to these questions.
Kym Miller is of German descent, and was born in the 1960s near the city of Adelaide, South Australia. During her life she has moved numerous times within Australia, and travelled across much of this vast country. Kym is now a Christian grandmother who loves nothing better than spending time with family and friends.
Acquiring an education was difficult for Kym due to learning disabilities, and she left high school early. She later went on to complete a Business Studies course, then joined the work force as an office clerk and learnt most facets of this type of employment.
Starting a family was a major event in Kym's life and she became a stay at home mum. For many years she enjoyed raising her children, as well as cooking, sewing, cross-stitch and word processing on a computer. One of her great joys is singing and Kym has many non-professional tapes of her family and herself singing.
In recent times she has joined a local women's support group for women either going through or who have survived domestic and family violence. Within this group she learns new skills, gains support for tough times, encouragement to achieve her goals, has people to help her celebrate her hopes and achievements, as well as reciprocating this for the other participants.
Attending a local church is a regular activity for Kym. One day, while attending church, a small voice said to her, "Write a book." However she had no idea what she was going to write about. Then she remembered Alice and how she had shared with Kym so many stories of times when Alice had seen God working in her life and His wonderful timing. So with Alice's permission, Kym starting writing God's Timing Not Mine.
Kym hopes that you will be inspired by this book to look for God's way, working and timing in your own life. That if you are going through domestic and family violence of any kind you will see that you are not alone, there are many others out there in similar situations to yourself, and help is available. Learn the many different aspects of domestic violence and do your best to eliminating it from your life.
