There is HOPE in our healing!!

Shelley has a powerful way of sharing hope in our healing. Life has a way of knocking us down and sometimes it's easier and safer to stay down, however through hope...supernatural hope, we can gain strength to get back up and live again. This series of interviews are powerful, on point, and inspiring! God is so faithful!! Thank you Shelley for continuing to encourage us in believing that we are a masterpiece!!

Each episode features a story of real people with real struggles who have found hope, healing, encouragement and strength from their relationship with God. Sometimes you have to hit bottom before you can reach up but God is always there to grab ahold and take care of His children.
As you listen to these inspiring stories, you will be inspired to discover you, too, are God's masterpiece!
Yes, Broken Crayons Still Color! Thank you, Shelley, for sharing these episodes with us!

Encouraging message

The 'Forgiveness Cross' message is so inspiring and transparent. The analogies used really give a person a geat visual for how unforgiveness only hurts the person not willing to let go. Thank you Shelley for this encouraging message!
