Ever Faithful to His Lead: My Journey Away From Emotional Abuse Her Faith Sustains and Releases Her From Abuse Author’s shares a pathway to hope and healing through faith in God
Amsterdam, NY, July, 2014
Kathleen Pooler spent the first 18 years of her life in a loving, supportive family. The next 25 years were engulfed in the abyss of two abusive marriages. Pooler rescued herself and is now dedicated to helping other women (and men) do the same.
She hopes to help others find their inner strength through sharing her hard-earned lessons in her new memoir.
Pooler is scheduling online and in-person talks as well as contacting church, Christian women’s and nonprofit groups nationwide to give women cause to renew hope and begin living their lives on their own terms.
“When we claim and honor the God-given strength within, we are able to climb out of the abyss of poor decisions and go on to live a meaningful, peaceful life.”
Ever Faithful to His Lead: My Journey Away from Emotional Abuse offers readers insight into her poor decisions and how they can learn from her story. “I want to inspire hope and action for my readers who need to find their own inner strength,” Pooler explains.
She sums up her message in these six tips:
- A loving family, solid career, and strong faith foundation do not guarantee a problem-free life.
- We all have everything we need within, but we need to claim and honor our own inner strength to get the life we want and deserve.
- Abuse, in any form, is harmful. Emotional abuse may not cause direct physical harm but it can be damaging to your mind and your spirit.
- The very things you think are holding you back from having the life you want can serve to help you find your way to freedom.
- Hope matters, even when all seems hopeless in the moment.
- Our God is all loving and wants the best for us. Embracing His presence in our lives will set you free.
Have you ever made self-defeating choices, wondered how you got there, then tried to find your way back home? Kathleen likes to think of her blog as a kitchen table and her blog posts as invitations to join in the conversation “around her kitchen table.” She’d love to have you stop by Memoir Writer’s Journey at http://krpooler.com where memoir writing tips and hope are shared—one story at a time.

About the Book:
A loving family, a solid nursing career, and a strong faith cannot rescue her until she decides to rescue herself.
How does a young woman from a stable, loving family make so many wise choices when it comes to her career, but so many wrong choices when it comes to love?
She must make a decision—face her self-defeating patterns and move on or repeat her mistakes. Her life and the lives of her two children depend upon the choices she makes, and the chances she takes.
