In August 2010, an article was published by the Institute for Relational Harm Reduction and Public Pathology Education which estimates that over 60 million people might be affected by a narcissistic relationship in the United States. This type of abuse is often difficult to identify and to discuss openly and many experts contend 60 million victims is far below actual numbers. Nicole Chapman’s research and her personal journey led her to seek answers as to why she was selected as a victim of narcissistic abuse at the hands of family members. Nicole’s victimization by her narcissistic predators will lead her to the Promised Land of becoming a “Survivor”, through her faith in Jesus Christ and her biblical research.
Nicole Chapman was born in 1955 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She was raised in a small suburban town outside of Oklahoma City. Nicole is a wife of 47 years, a Mother, and a Grandmother of two precious Grandsons. She left home at the age of 19 with no support, emotional nor financial from family members. Nicole supported herself with the traditional secretarial positions until achieving the job of a lifetime as a federal investigator. Nicole retired from her federal position after 30 years of service, and began to research narcissism from her own life experience as a victim. Nicole’s faith in Christ and her ability to conduct effective investigative research enabled her to tell her story from a biblical perspective.
