Content Warning

We know that some of the books we include contain stories that show different types of harm. Our goal is not to show or promote violence simply for entertainment, but we also know that violence is a reality in our world. Many of our community members face violence day-to-day. GERI shares these stories to help readers handle and talk about the violence in their own lives. As part of Safe Haven Ministries, we want to help readers talk about hard topics like sexual assault, domestic violence, and other forms of violence. We know that these issues deeply impact our community.

When you’re reading, remember your own self-care. When something you read is too much, stop reading, take a break, and reach out to someone you trust to talk about why you feel overwhelmed.

Let's Talk About

Healthy Relationships

Relationships aren’t just about the people we date or want to ‘hook up’ with. They also include our families and friends.

This is the Relationship Equality Wheel. It represents the foundations of a healthy relationship. This applies to all types of relationships, and each part of the wheel is built on another part. For example, trust cannot be formed without mutual respect. Mutual respect cannot happen if a person feels attacked or threatened.
