How do we know the difference between normal marital problems and emotional or spiritual abuse? Who do we turn to? How should church leaders respond when someone is seeking help in a spiritually or emotionally abusive relationship? Join me as I talk with Natalie Hoffman who runs an organization called Flying Free Now that helps women who find themselves in spiritually or emotionally abusive relationships. She is also the author of, Is It Me? Making Sense of Your Confusing Marriage, A Christian Woman's Guide to Spiritual and Emotional Abuse.
