Hi everyone! My name is Stacey Kimball. I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I am a victim of sexual assault. For my safety, Stacey Kimball is not my real name. I was in a terrible, manipulative relationship for 8 months this past year that was full of emotional abuse, and ended in sexual assault. My ex-boyfriend does not know that I am claiming sexual assault and I am not pressing charges. I have not talked to him ever since we broke up, and therefore want to remain anonymous to remain safe from him in case he ends up finding this blog. My purpose for making this blog is not to shame him, but to be a voice out there for the other women in the church (and outside of the church!) to feel that they are not alone in this world. Unfortunately, sexual assault happens to members of the church, and I want to be a voice out there for those girls who feel alone, ashamed, used, unsure of how to cope, or however else they might be dealing with this trauma. You are NOT alone. To read about my experience here is the link to My Story.
