Trade Your Wilderness for WILD

Abuse feels a lot like a wilderness.
When “Christians” hurt us at home, at church, or at work
our inner wounds create a
toxic mental soundtrack
that tells us lies about who we are, how to act, and what we’re worth.

Coach Sarah teaches you how to retrain your brain, restore your wellness, and
reclaim your voice
with these four WILD questions:

WISDOM“How do I make wise choices?”
IDENTITY“Who does God say I really am?”
LEGACY“What should I leave behind?”
DARING“Where am I going next?”

Coach Sarah works exclusively with female survivors of abusive relationships in the faith community who are
ready to leave their wilderness behind.

Abuse is like graffiti, marring our internal picture of the loving heart of God.
