Our Guest Blogger for October, 2021, David Pittman

David Pittman is a survivor of sexual abuse perpetrated by a Southern Baptist minister. He is the Director of Together We Heal and part of the Child Safeguarding Initiative with GRACE. He teaches churches, schools, and families how to talk with their kids about sexual abuse, how to better identify predatory behavior and how to properly respond to both victims and perpetrators.

Children of an untreated victim of childhood sexual abuse
stand a five times greater chance of being abused themselves.


Punch a hole in the darkness!!
Become a Lamplighter, a light in the world of child abuse.
Start a chapter in your area.

Provide a “home away from home” for other survivors, a safe place where they can tell their story. Support for adult survivors of child sexual abuse incest, domestic violence, rape and sexual assault

Due to COVID-19 virus the Lamplighter Movement is in limbo. Once this world-wide problem is over we will come back even stronger. If you are looking for a chapter in your area that may or may not still be functioning, check the Chapter Locations page to see if there is a chapter listed for your area and email the facilitator to see if they are doing Zoom meetings, are doing masks and social distancing or have telephone support. If you are interested in starting a chapter once this is over please let me know and I will contact you once life is safer to help you get set up. My email address is margie@thelamplighters.org. At the present time my goal is to begin setting up new chapters in the fall of 2021. WE NEED AN ARMY!

In the meantime, please check out our REPAIR page on this website to discover how you too can become the happiest person you know.  Order a copy of REPAIR Your Life and begin the work. We also have REPAIR for Kids, REPAIR for Teens, REPAIR Your Life Workbook, REPAIR for Toddlers and a post recovery book called It’s Your Choice! Decisions That Will Change Your Life. All are available on amazon.com as well as all websites for book distributions and our publisher Loving Healing Press’s website.

We must all stand together so that none must stand alone!


I Never Heard A Robin Sing

My memoir, with a five-star review by Dr. Vincent Felitti, is now available
in paperback on amazon.com and all other online book stores.


My recovery poems have all been compiled into a book called
Odyssey, A Spiritual Journey.
Please read the newest entry in my Poetry Corner


Working the Program

My life is but a weaving between my God and me;  I do not choose the colors He worketh steadily. Oftimes He weaveth sorrow and I in foolish pride forget He sees the upper and I the underside. Not till the loom is silent and shuttles cease to fly will God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why. The dark threads are as needful in the skillful weaver’s hand as the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.


If you want to be happy change the sail not the wind.
