My name is Tim Anderson. I'm the man behind Tina Anderson. I am a former Marine and I'm the one that went into "Marine mode" and encouraged her to be strong even though we knew this would be a tough journey for her and our family.
I am very proud of my wife. This past year and a half has not been easy on her. This is not the road she would have chosen for herself. It is the path that God has set before us and we will give Him all the glory and praise for what He has done, is doing, and will continue to do.
Every once in a while I will read something that I want to respond to. I've responded openly to a couple things online but for the most part have remained quiet except for the occasional Facebook note that I would post. A couple times they were picked up and shared with others on a more open venue.
Anyway, I thought about starting my own blog but don't know how much I'll be writing and it occurred to me that maybe Laurie would let me post a few things on the blog she started a few months ago. She was very gracious and has opened a spot for me to share my occasional thoughts with you.
Lastly, "thank you" to all of you that have been a support to my wife and our family. Your prayers and words of encouragement mean a lot. We don't take you for granted. Our goal is to be an encouragement to you and hope that Tina's story will give others the courage to do what is right when abuse happens, to comfort and support the abused, to seek justice against the abuser, and to love God no matter what happens in your life.
