Hi, I’m Joanna Leonard. Thanks for stopping by.
I was born the fifth child of nine. This fact defined me for years. Impacted severely by my sisters death just one year before my birth I would grow up to know the power of fear.
My mom’s arms ached from the loss of my sister, Deborah Grace, at only two years of age.
At seven years old I would journey to my new home in the mountains of New Hampshire. My life would never be the same. I would be raised in a low joy, fear based environment for the next six years.
The abuse I would endure would change my life forever.
This blog is my reflections upon what happened and my testimony of God’s love to me as one of His beloved daughters.
