Silent No More
Imagine standing in front of a stove. You look up at the clock. You have 15 minutes to have dinner ready. Your hands tremble at the thought of not finishing in time. You set the table just as a key slides in the front door lock.
Putting on your best smile, you usher him to his place at the table. Suddenly, you realize you forgot to season his food the way he likes it. Your heart starts pounding. Maybe he won’t notice. Maybe…
This is just one example of the the terror suffered in silence by victims of domestic violence every day. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States alone.
On Joni Table Talk, we strive to confront issues that need to be talked about, and that’s why we seized the opportunity to bring awareness to this issue at Gateway Church’s annual Pink Impact conference. Sharing their own domestic violence experiences, recording artist Nicole C. Mullen and Table Talk’s own Dorothy Newton gave a voice to the struggles so many face behind closed doors, making one unforgettable program.
We can end this terrible act by shining the light on it! I am so excited to share both of these programs with you this month, and I’m believing that many who watch will find the courage to speak out and find the help that they need.
If this is you today, I want you to know that there is hope. You’re not alone. Please call our Daystar prayer center and let us pray with you and give you resources to make the change in your own life! You can also connect with us online at Daystar.com/prayer.

If you know Jesus and are following His plan for your life, you're a success.
In your despair, rescue someone else.
