Amber Newberry and I met through Holy Yoga. She is the founder of www.beautifulandbeloved.com where she offers many different modalities of inspiration and healing for women including videos, writings, a shop, essential oils and Holy Yoga, all designed as resources for women, to remind them that they are beautiful and beloved.
I am so grateful to Amber for sharing her story here. She shares her experience with sexual assault and a rape as a teenager that led to an abortion. Amber recalls feeling unworthy until she heard the Gospel for the first time and realized God loves her. This began her journey of healing. Now, she embraces her calling to be a “wounded healer” and help others find freedom.
Amber and I hope and pray that this conversation blesses you and that no matter what kind of trauma and life experience you have been through, you are not alone. You are worthy of God’s grace and healing. You are beautiful and you are beloved.

You guys!! I’m so grateful to Josh Phillips for sharing his story! Josh is married to Rachel Phillips who was on the last Great Big Yes podcast (#16) sharing her experience with anxiety. Josh tells us what it’s like to be married to a woman who suffers from anxiety, how it affects the relationship and how God has helped him learn and grow through their 16 years of marriage. Listen in! You don’t want to miss his side of the story!
Can we all just take a moment and thank the men in our lives who have loved us well?
He talks about what it’s like to not understand what your wife needs, to mess up and need to grow and learn. He is vulnerable and transparent about his experience. Share with the men in your life who may need this. If they love someone with anxiety, they are not alone and there is hope.
Josh is also an American Ninja Warrior! Woop! I shared a video on the last post and here are a couple more just for fun!
