Award-winning author Sister Renee Pittelli is an Adult Child Recovery Mentor, victim's advocate, and the founder and director of Luke 17:3 Ministries for adult children of abusive, controlling, or abandoning birth-families. She is a proponent of No-Contact when dealing with narcissists, sociopaths, and abusers. Sister Renee is the product of an abusive childhood and abusive family relationships that lasted long into her adulthood. At the age of 47, the Lord set her free, when she was disowned by her abusive family for setting limits on their behavior. Since then, God has blessed Sister Renee with healing and peace, and has led her to help thousands of people with her testimony and experiences. After many years studying the scriptures and narcissistic abuse, as well as learning from many sources through her website, blogs, and as a group moderator, she has accumulated a wealth of knowledge in this field. She has been blessed with a gift for finding, and passing on to her readers, Bible verses that deal with abuse and how to handle it. The Lord has led Sister Renee to serve as a consultant to therapists, psychiatrists, ministers, and other professionals in the field of narcissistic abuse and to share her substantial knowledge and insights with them. She has written extensively about family abusers, narcissists, psychopaths, bullies and their Flying Monkeys, the dilemmas unique to abusive family systems, the biblical perspective on abuse, setting and enforcing boundaries, godly confrontation, the myths of forgiveness without repentance and honoring abusive parents, cutting ties with reprobate friends and relatives, church and spiritual abuse, No Contact, and living the life of freedom, peace and joy that our heavenly Father intended for us. Sister Renee is a happily married mother of two adult sons and a grandmother. She loves family and friend time, animals, old-time gospel music, oldies and blues, sitting on the porch, playing the piano, reading and studying, cooking, being with her church family, and spending time with the Lord.
