Flying Free is a support resource for women of faith who need hope and healing from hidden emotional abuse, spiritual abuse, and narcissistic abuse. Because of misogynistic theology taught in controlling and spiritually abusive churches, many Christian women find themselves in destructive marriages where there is an uneven power dynamic. Male partners use their status as a husband to gain power and control over a woman’s mind, emotions, body, social life, finances, and more. When she tries to get help from her equally abusive church environment, she is betrayed and re-abused. Flying Free offers a Christ-centered, gospel-oriented perspective on domestic abuse that protects and honors the voices and autonomy of women. Tune in each week to hear conversations with emotional abuse advocates and fellow survivors who will walk with you on your journey up and out. We hear you. You are not alone.

It’s so nice to find a healthy Christian podcast on relationship. One that does not perpetuate abuse, but stands up to it. Speaking up for those in bondage, and setting them free with the truth of Jesus. Keep them coming!!
Bob Hamp podcast is awesome!
One not to miss. Thank you for sharing this! Great discussion; Natalie asks the right questions and Bob gives spot on advice. A great springboard for further learning, especially on the topic of what it could mean if abuser has a true personality disorder. Natalie had shared some of Bob Hamp’s workshops last year through her Flying Free group and his classes on abusive relationships were extremely helpful.
Crying as I listen
I cannot begin to thank you enough, for this podcast and your website as well. I have felt so very alone in this process and I’m just now beginning to see that there are others out there who just don’t know how to give a voice to what has happened. Keep up the amazing work, we’re listening 😊
