Change Is Possible

The most dangerous of people are those that "count it all joy" by looking at the bigger picture.

These people are confident. They have an unshakable belief that all will be well, no matter what things look like at this moment.

These individuals have come through the proverbial fire and flood with this belief, or they have learned this belief, becuase they have survived. They have even prospered.

Now the dangerous people spread the good word of hope. This is what the author of A League of Dangerous Women wants us to know.

Advocates For Society and Justice

Groups of women have been dangerous in the past, among them the suffragettes of America's 19th and 20th centuries. They were abused by some men and women alike that opposed the female right to vote, as boldly depicted in the film Iron Jawed Angels.

Just as disturbingly today, some women are abused in many more ways, starting as early as infancy when they may be molested, beaten, burned, neglected, starved, and abandoned as commodities, used up and thrown away.

For this and other reasons of peer pressure, spousal abandonment and more, many American women fall victim to drug addiction, unwed pregnancy, homelessness, extreme poverty, prostitution, felony crime, and suicide.

The Courage To Change

With nothing left to lose, these women may come to Wellspring and its way station home, where the staff and residents demonstrate that God is still in the healing business. Any of the stories in A League of Dangerous Women could become an insightful and edifying film on its own. Together, they make a formidable organic team that cannot help but grow, prosper, and spread blessings.

These individuals progressed from broken vessels, to women dangerous to themselves and others, to heroes boldly dangerous for the Kingdom of God and His promises for healing, deliverance, and truth. They won't settle for less, and it's all real.

This book is for any woman aged middle school to senior citizen. I hope that women everywhere can become so dangerous.

Employment at Wellspring

Those interested in joining the Wellspring community that helps recovering women return to society as productive citizens can view the employment opportunities listed at the link above. Additional workers are needed throughout the year.

Informational Links, Resources, and Help:

Abuse is no respecter of persons. Men are abused, just as are women, children, the elderly and minorities. It need not happen.

Finding Work After Leaving the Abusive Situation or Home:

Nurses and other healthcare workers are needed at high pay and benefits all over the United States. Some of them are needed to work in clinics and hospitals that help the victims of drug and alcohol abuse as well as domestic violence and other forms of interpersonal abuse and violence. Nursing is often a good career with which to start a new life. Many hospitals offer jobs with flexible hours that enable employees to study nursing. Some of these institutions reimburse tuition paid on a quarterly or semester basis.

It is important that crimes associated with all sorts of abuse be handled correctly and there are ample positions available to help in this process in the growing field of Criminology.

      It is incredible, KateWest, both the circumstances that send the women and men to places for help and the people that serve them. It is so much hard work and takes so long. Thanks for commenting!

      Abuse of any kind is tragic indeed. I think it's far more prevalent than many people think. I'm glad you're putting a spotlight on it.

      rogerbeta, thank you for sharing this important and awe-inspiring story of your grandmother. It reminds me of the story of an old Korean grandmother that was mute and could not read, but successfully raised a daughter and grandson without running water, electricity or other aides. These women kept on going through the obstacles and never gave up. I hope more opeopkle learn form your story what they need to learn.

      And thank you Zsuzy for your wonderful cooments.

      Great HUB Patty.

      I agree every womean should read and get familiar with what abuse could do to them and their family. I'm of the opinion that knowledge is the first step to defence...

      regards Zsuzsy

      "These individuals progressed from broken vessels, to women dangerous to themselves and others, to heroes boldly dangerous for the Kingdom of God and His promises for healing, deliverance, and truth. They won't settle for less, and it's all real."

      This phrase reminded me of my grandmother, who was left alone by my grandfather with eight children in the 1930s.

      She managed to grow all her children, built a house for each one of them, married all of them. She was in charge of a Maternity Hospital ward at night, and in the morning she will sell cologne, in the little bottles of peniciline, and all sort of other work. She slept for 3 hours, read a lot, and when she got her pension she traveled alone thru all South America.

      When my grandfather returned home after her second wife died. M grandmother forgived him, and gave him shelter in the summer home. He slept in a different room until he died.

      We were very young and did not know all these details, she alwasy showed to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, the values of God, family and love.

      My mother is 90 years old now and the only survivor of the eight children.
