Happy Women’s History Month!

Happy Women’s History Month!
In honor of this month, let’s practice being a good friend.
The steps below are how to help a friend after sexual assault, but honestly this also applies in any area of life or challenges.
I just finished having the true blessing of a 12 week, virtual “Healing Corner” journey with 5 beautiful, phenomenal and fantastic Sisters, Alida, Karen, Luz, Edith and Cathy πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
God placed all of us together in the perfect season of our lives; something that ONLY HE COULD DO!!! πŸ™
Personally, I was able to open up and share with them things that I’ve NEVER shared before. I truly thank God for each sister! Sister Alida, Healing Hands thank you for your obedience following God’s instruction and direction. God bless you for our love fest. πŸ₯° YOU are a wonderful sister-friend! πŸ’œπŸ’™
β€’ Be a good listener
β€’ Believe your friend
β€’ Keep what they share confidential
β€’ Provide options and information
β€’ Let them make their own decisions
β€’ Support and care for your friend. Let them know that they’re not alone.
