EP 58 - Finding Hope and Purpose from a Life of Darkness with Charlene Madden
Play • 41 min

Today I welcome Charlene Madden, who admittedly spent most of her life living in a state of darkness. 

**A gentle warning, this episode discusses suicide. If you are feeling vulnerable in this area, please consult with a doctor or mental health professional in your area. Or call one of the Suicide Prevention numbers listed in the resources.**    

After she experienced over nine years of sexual trauma, a decade of domestic violence, more than three decades of mental illness, and suicidal ideology, she was two days away from committing suicide when she attended a women's workshop that saved her life.

She authentically shares the struggles that she has experienced in a way that reaches into the hearts of listeners in a profound and relatable way. By discussing topics of childhood sexual violence, domestic abuse, and mental illness, she is on a mission to shatter the stigma surrounding these topics.  

She began her healing journey and found her purpose by turning her darkness into a message of hope. Believe me when I say that her story and vulnerability will impact you!

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the complete episode:

  • Charlene shares her story of sexual trauma, domestic violence, mental illness, and suicidal ideology.
  • Find out how a women's workshop saved her life just two days before her planned suicide.
  • Discover her journey of hope and purpose through self-love and overcoming fear.
