Help Bethany and the boys build a new life.

Late last year after suffering in silence for years, my best friend Bethany left her abusive (now) ex-husband with her two boys Renn and Eli.

They went from a family of 4, with a good income (enough to keep Bethany at home), to a family of 3, with no income, no education to gain an income, and so much debt. 

On top of that, there are severe medical needs. Bethany is a Type 1 Diabetic, Renn has Epilepsy, and Eli has ADHD. All of which require daily medications.

Often times when we see friends and family going through a tough time, we feel powerless to help. After watching Bethany and her boys scrape by these past few months, I knew I had to act.

This is your chance to help. Debt, medical expenses and car troubles have made it nearly impossible to afford even the most basic of necessities. Clothes and shoes for two growing boys, hygiene products, food, gas etc.

Rebuilding a life is a marathon, not a sprint. The money raised from this campaign will go toward the basics needed to get through each day as well as laying a foundation to grow and thrive in their new life.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

From Bethany,

• Corporal injury of spouse
• False imprisonment by violence
• Sexual penetration by foreign object with force and violence
• Rape of spouse by force/fear/threat
• Attempted murder

These were the charges. This was my nightmare almost a year ago. This was my nightmare the first time he was arrested in 2013, the day we found out that our son was having brain surgery. He was the most confusing nightmare that could have ever walked this earth.

But today... that consistently inconsistent nightmare took a plea deal of 20 years, admitting guilt to all the felonies he committed against the woman he swore before God he’d love for all of time.

We are free and we are safe.

Again, I say... God is good.

The nightmare has ended but the healing and rebuilding are just beginning.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and shared. The money we have raised so far for Bethany and her family has helped them to pay off a couple of bills and get the boys some much needed new shoes.

More than that, you have all proven what I already knew. That Bethany and her boys are so loved by their friends, family and community.
