Q&A With C. Joyce Farrar-Rosemon

What book have you read that changed your life?
"It may sound like a cliche, but I would say undoubtedly it is the Bible. I don't know of any other book that contains, history, mystery, adventure, prophecy and advice on how others haved lived and on how to live a fulfilling life. The Word enables me to go into dangerous places and come out unscathed. It empowers me to accomplish my dreams and live a victorious life free of depression and pain. It imparts in me a love for mankind and a desire to see others self-actualize. For more inspirational thoughts and to preview books I have authored check out Stay Blessed! Joyce "

How can you manifest your destiny?
"Jermaine, Merriam-Webster defines “destiny as follows”: 1) something to which a person or thing is destined; 2) a predetermined course of events often held to be an irresistible power or agency. I like the second definition and that is the one that guides my life. As I reflect on different roads I have traveled in life, I look at the turns that I have taken that seemed to be inevitable or providential. I’ll give you one example. As a child, I liked to read and thought about one day writing a book. Lo and behold, I’m now planning on writing a 3rd book. You see it consumes me, as I lay in bed the words come to me and I have to get up and write the words down. I don’t worry about having writer’s block, because there’s a force that compels me to write. There’s no sense in trying to sleep, because the words come almost as if I’m being channeled by an unseen force (that I know is God). How can you manifest your destiny Jermaine? By listening to your heart, your gut. What is it that you would do if you were independently wealthy? What gnaws at you, sort of like an addiction, and once you satisfy it you feel a sense of accomplishment and purpose, even if no one else compliments you? What do you desire to do, but often feel incapable of accomplishing because of funds, no one in your family has done it or you think people won’t embrace it? That’s the seed in you trying to come forth through the weeds and adversities of life. I believe everyone has a seed in them, whether it’s plant life or human life that is bursting to come forth into fruition. Listen to your heart and your visions of the night (dreams). Your dreams are attempting to guide you to your destiny, like Joseph of the Bible was guided to his. Enjoy the journey Jermaine and keep your eyes on the prize and never give up! Joyce"

Although many women have moved from the backroom to the boardroom, there are still inequities when it comes to their relationships. Along with the employment gains women have made, there are still remarkably high numbers of women, rich or poor who choose to remain in relationships where domestic violence is prevalent.

I was asked basically the same question by Geraldo Rivera. He posed it in relation to how I would counsel Rihana, a high-profile victim of domestic abuse inflicted upon her by her celebrity boyfriend, Chris Brown. Before I answer the question, let me share some statistics from my recently published book, “How To Get To The Palace From Your Prison: Joseph’s 14-Step Program to Overcome Loneliness, Depression, Discrimination, Barrenness, & Abuse”

Estimates range from 960,000 incidents of violence against a current or former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend per year, to three million women who are physically abused by their husband or boyfriend per year. Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex ,or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Nearly one-third of American women (31 percent) report being physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives, according to a 1998 Commonwealth Fund survey. Women are seven to 14 times more likely than men to report suffering severe physical assaults from an intimate partner. The health-related costs of rape, physical assault, stalking, and homicide by intimate partners exceed five point eight billion dollars each year (CDC study). On average, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in this country every day. In 2000, 1,247 women were killed by an intimate partner. The same year, 440 men were killed by an intimate partner.

In a nutshell, from my experience women, rich or poor, remain in abusive situations typically because of low self-esteem, fear, conditioning, exposure as a child to domestic or child abuse in the home, poverty or the inability to financially provide for themselves and their offspring.

The key to solving the problem of domestic abuse is multifaceted. Providing housing, employment, and food will not make the problem go away. This is clearly evident in the fact that domestic abuse does not discriminate and is found all over the world regardless of income, race or class. Please note that domestic violence is also found among lesbian and gay couples.

The approach to solving domestic violence will take the cooperative effort of first of all the couple, who must acknowledge that there is a problem and they must be willing to seek help. If they chose to stay together, not only does the victim need help, but also the abuser, who often suffered abuse at the hands of a parent or someone in authority over them at some point in their life.

It is said that it takes a village to raise a family. To end domestic violence we will need all the resources that a village can offer to come together and work side by side- family, relatives, friends, police, school, counseling agencies, the church, government and legislation to end this dysfunctional behavior that is eroding the fabric and stability of families and relationships all over the world.

Let's put and end to domestic violence against men, women and children today! Any ideas on how we can get started? Let me hear from you.
