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.
