How does God heal you emotionally, when committing suicide, because you feel trapped in an abusive marriage, feels like a more honorable solution than getting a divorce?

My guest for today’s interview is Mel Shipman of NextLevel Life. Mel is a life purpose coach, an author and speaker. In this episode Mel shares how God redeemed her from an emotionally abusive marriage, how she grievied the loss of the life she had imagined and how she’s learning to trust that God is using her past to redeem her future.
