Book Drive

Knowledge is power.

The Breaking the Silence for Women book drive was launched in 2019 to purchase and provide powerful books about the truths of domestic abuse — and related healing, empowering topics — to local churches, women’s centers, school libraries, and individual survivors who seek validation, understanding, and guidance.

Titles of consideration include:

Psychopath Free: Recovering from Emotionally Abusive Relationships with Narcissists, Sociopaths, and Toxic People

Unmasking Narcissism: A Guide to Understanding the Narcissist in Your Life

Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life
