Donde esta Hannah?
« on: October 31, 2021, 12:32:24 am »
In old Nauvoo, our moderator was Every Day Grace, aka EDGjanitor, aka Her Cleanliness, aka Hannah Bird. I started thinking about something she wrote, and it occurred to me that I haven't heard anything about her for six years. Does anyone here know how she's doing?

I do. She is Hannah Russell on FB.  She is divorced or divorcing Bird..  Very very terrible court battle.  She is available thru messenger.   We do not communicate every breath but she is one who knew nearly right away about the new cancer.  So we have each others backs.  I believe she is soldiering on, healing slowly from abuse, but being brave.
She is still our Hannah.

It depends on how you define 'well.'
If you define it as in the midst of a nasty divorce, then yes, this is a struggle.
If you define it as finally being freed from the nasty psychological abuse of a domineering, manipulative husband and finding the hope in the truth that you aren't as terrible as he led you to believe...well, then, she's doing better.

When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it
If only we're brave enough to be it

She is still a wise voice of reason that can occasionally cut right to the heart of the matter.  I am so grateful I have her as one of my friends on Facebook  Her elucidating posts are quite helpful.

Could those of you still in contact with her pass on my love and best wishes to her, please? I very much miss her presence from Nauvoo. She is very much missed!

Scruffy, I passed it along. I'm not on facebook much anymore myself, but I reached out via Messenger and passed on the love. Thank you!

Hello. I'm still alive. I think.

I'm experiencing  all the joy and pain of starting over from rock bottom at 50. I'm trying to get through college and work full time and deal with severe ptsd for me and my kids. I'm working on an app so I started a little business with that. In 2015 seeing absolutely  no way out of my situation,  I attempted  suicide. Luckily I'm bad at math. But because of that I've been volunteering  with others experiencing  dv and trauma. I think it helps.

I haven't been here because  my relationship  with the church has felt pretty rough for a long time. I've had so many leaders that knew and sent me back or even blamed me. He and his family used my faith and my kids to keep me trapped and ashamed. But it's so lovely of you all to think of me. I love you guys and it meant the world to me.

StillGrace, it's so good to hear from you again. I've missed you. As you can see, your virtual ward loves you.

Gracie!  Gracie you're here! Thank you so much for stopping in! Holy cats you've endured so much in the past six years. I hope that you'll visit here when you have the capacity. I've missed your observations and insights about life. Your "Earning Your Spurs" essay changed me as a teacher.

Hi EDG, good to hear from you after all this time.  Sounds like you've been having some fun.

We've only met online, but I'm reasonably sure the world is a better place with you in it.  Hope you come out on the other side of these trials ok!
What-about-ism is pointless. I like to think most people's responses to such arguments would be, "Yup. That person, who happened to wear the same political jersey I do/did, was totally wrong on that, too."

So good to hear from you again! I'm so sorry for how things have been going, and all I can say is that those leaders should be ashamed of themselves. I hope you have really turned the corner and that the future is a lot brighter than it was. Look after yourself and come back to Nauvoo lots!
