was founded by a team of concerned and dedicated individuals who faced abuse in many areas of life. While overcoming
the pains of abuse, they realized the special needs and problems that face victims, and those closest to them. One of the
biggest issues with abuse is the ‘silence’, therefore FoRe! is dedicated to being A Voice/FoRce To Promote Action,
for silenced victims. Regarding restoration; we have learned, removing a victim from the abuse is only part of
it. The ‘misuse’, must be removed from the soul-(mind, will, & emotions), through education and mentorship,
while forming relationships with the memories, in order to continue walking through. The issue, is of pandemic
proportions – ‘Domestic-Sexual Abuse’. It is in the overcoming of their effects, do we make our dreams come true.

From the President:
FoRe! (pronounced like the # 4 and is the only
thing you can yell on a golf course) is truly a 'Force To Promote Action' - and was birthed in 2005 after a rape, which
opened the door to the child sexual abuse I never wanted to deal with, which was why I married the law enforcement officers
that I thought would protect me. . . but didn't. While riding on this healing road I have noticed, there are plenty
of places 'victims' can go and even more things available to those who are 'surviving'. But, for those who are committed
to Overcoming and are out there on the front lines of their causes. . . well, I've learned, there is not so much... in
regards to support. We see the need and venture to think we can reach 'Beyond', and make a change with FoRe! International.

While on a golf course, a player's focus is on 'the green'. God's
focus, is 'Beyond' what we see; Where dreams belonging to every child are endless and obtainable! Especially for
the '1' that lay dormant within. "The only way to find the limits of the possible,
is by going Beyond them, to the impossible." ~Arthur C. Clarke
While sitting on my bed, looking out my amazing doorway on the view of what I now consider Heaven,
Lygaria Beach, Crete Greece, I shot this photo from my little Sony Vaio computer that happened to have a camera on it (something
uncommon in Sept of 2001). The photo did not come out so hot (photo below), but it was expected. And then, I put
it into Photoshop and pressed 1 button and out pops the face above. And as did my soul change, because of the amazing women
on that Island that month so long ago, so did God Change The Face Of Abuse. Over the years my face has changed and sometimes the hardest thing to do is run into yourself, when you have been trying to run from yourself, for so long.
FoRe! those who can finally see HIS/HER Light within...I raise my glass to you. Yamas and may God Bless! ; ) Enjoy the

“Be devoted to one another in love...” (Romans
Think about the people God has placed in your life. They’re
not there by accident. God brings people to you for a purpose. We should live with this awareness that, “I am here to
add value to people. I am here to help them succeed.” Don’t go around always thinking, “I wonder what that
person can do for me. I wonder what they have to offer.” No, we should have the attitude, “What can I do for them?
How can I help them come up higher? Can I teach them something I know? Can I connect them with someone who can help them?”
Don’t make the mistake of going through life ingrown. Instead, be a dream releaser. Use your talent, your influence
and your experience, not just to accomplish your goals, but to help release a dream in someone else.
there is nothing more rewarding than to lay down at night knowing that you helped someone else become better. You not only
fulfilled your purpose for that day, you did your best. It may have just been a two-minute phone call where you encouraged
someone; but when you live as a dream releaser, you’ll see your own dreams come alive as well!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father in heaven, thank You for equipping me to be a blessing to others. Show me ways
to be a dream releaser and help others to rise up higher. Help me to use my influence to encourage others and honor You always.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
