Author Kristine Fredheim writes a personal account of the pain brought on by her parents’ violence towards each other. After experiencing them abuse each other physically and verbally for years,Kristine inherited some of their behaviors. According to leading expert Dr. Jeff Edelson, “Children who experience domestic violence are 2-3 times more likely to repeat the cycle of violence in adulthood”. Kristine unfortunately was one of them. 
After attempting suicide, which those who grow up with CDV are 6 times more likely to do, Kristine sought spiritual help. This path has led her to a more happy, successful, fulfilling life.
