I wanted to reach out to my Cafe Mom friends and patrons and ask them to view the trailer for the movie This Can't Be love. Tell us what you think. Please help us in our fight against domestic violence and child abuse by visiting  Fundraiser link and donating atleast $1.00.  If you know anyone who is in an abusive relationship, encourage them to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for counseling, domestic violence group meetings and Domestic violence shelters. 1800-799-SAFE.

The movie comes from my book This Can't Be Love. Click on the book to read the synopsis.


This trailer was made over a year ago when we first started filming. A new trailer will be made once filming is complete. Thank you Cafe Mom for your support.

I was abused by my ex in many ways. Glad I got out of that alive. He would have killed me.

I was abused by my ex too. But I walked right into another abusive relationship. This one doesn't hit but the emotional abuse is just as bad. Working on getting out.

Thank you so much. It has been a long process and the devil has been fighting me at every turn when it comes to producing this film. You wouldn't believe the struggle. That's why I know this message has to get out.  The abuse you see the child going through in this movie trailer came from my  own true life experience. I think the abuse I experienced as a child was some of the reason why I chose certain men and dealt with abuse in my adult relationships.

I think more women need to know about domestic violence shelters and what they can do for them. I also want people to stand up, call the department of human services when you know a child is being abused. If atleast one person had done that for me, alot of the abuse I experienced could have been stopped.

I also want to encourage authorites to take these complaints seriously and act in a timely and effective manner.

Please visit the link provided to help us in our fight. We ask everyone to please donate atleast $1.00. Please share the link on your social media pages.  $1.00 may not seem like alot, but to someone who is trying to reach a goal for a purpose, $1.00 means we are one step closer. The enemy will not stop this!!!

I know that God will return whatever you donate back to you a hundredfold. You might even get it back the same day, I've seen Him do it before when I've given someone something out of love...

It's women like you that I am trying to reach. I know how hard it is to be in a relationship with someone and pray that they will change. To overlook the horrible things they say or do and give excuses for their behavior. But you deserve so much more. God created you for so much more joy, happiness, and peace. I don't know your situation and I don't know your finances, but their are support groups for domestic violence victims. Even if you are not ready to leave yet, atleast go to the meetings so that you can talk about your feelings and get support. There is a national domestic violence hotline that can direct you to any resources you may need. When I lfinally left my abuser, I called this number and this is what started my journey toward healing.... Give them a call. It might be good for you to take your children to counseling too. Even if they don't say anything, it is affecting them.  1-800-799-7233

It's been a process lol, but I am a survivor. I know that God will provide and make a way. He didn't allow me to survive childhood abuse, spousal abuse, go through all these trials, and then not provide. My father doesn't work like that.  He said he is the author and finisher of my faith. You can visit www.aroundtheworldmedia.com and suscribe to keep up with our project.  Thank you so much for the love and support!

Oh the stories I could tell! I don't want to go into detail right now. But, my current has had a lot therapy to become the decent man he is now. Before then my family suffered a lot. Both physical and emotional abuse. I was usually his target with physical. I actually reported each time I went to the hospital. But, they knew him, and DID NOT report it. All four fingers on both hands have been crushed by him at 2 different times!
