About

[Updated 3/19/2009]

Danni Moss is a pseudonym.  I am using an alternate name for writing to give a measure of anonymity to my children, family and former in-laws.  In my writing, my children are (in order of age) J, A and C.  My ex-husband is Gary.  This is not his real name.  I do go by Danni in real life.  I’m a 40-something single mom starting over after 20 years of marriage. 

I’m also a professional writer and a vocalist.   I spent most of my marriage as a stay-home mother but wrote for various organizations and purposes through the years.  I used to act and direct drama as well, but have lost my interest in that avenue in the past few years.  The intensity of my private life burned me out on drama.

I am especially passionate about the state of the Christian church and about abuse, by the church and within the church.  I have an unfortunately extensive experience in this arena.  This site is part of my personal goal of being actively involved in doing something about these issues.

 I’d love to hear from you if you’re checking out my blog site.  I do moderate all comments, and inflammatory or argumentative posts will be deleted.  This is not an open forum for discussion, so I reserve the right to delete or edit as I see fit.

  3. Good luck with school & your new life.

  4. I appreciated reading more about you. Sounds like you are taking some very important and meaningful steps right now. God bless.

  5. Danni,

    Please, please e-mail me. I would love to talk to you about some ideas I have. BTW, my roomie is a social worker, so much of what you say is right on according to her.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Amy

  6. Just stumbled onto ur site and I can’t believe how prevalent abuse has become amongst christians and how misunderstood especially verbal and mental abuse. Your articles have been very helpful to me in my own situation. I’ve come to realise that by just accepting this treatment and not standing up for myself, I actually had a hand in the abuse and that it is not a normal situation. Although leaving is painful, staying in the relationship is much worse.

  7. Thought you might be interested in browsing my blog. I was sexually abused by two pastors and then ran to a controlling and misogenous church. I have been in therapy now for 8 years and have found a great deal of health.

    I went back to school to get a teaching degree. By the time I finished my master’s I think I had enough hours for 2 doctorates!

    Blessings.

  8. Di,

    I checked out your blog – awesome! You must be sort of near me geographically based on some of your writing. I’m adding your site to my blogroll. Keep up the fantastic work!

  10. Hi Danni,
    Great site, thank you for addressing a very, very real, living problem in churches today. I’m a survivor an abusive church, and am in the middle of my own cancer battle. Hang in there!
    Blessings,
    Ken
