We are excited to announce a new direction and focus for the ministry! For the last several years we have been designing spiritual growth programs focused on helping women heal their hearts, discover their purpose, and shine their light! This mission has taken over my heart. I have felt change was coming for quite some time now, and after much prayer and consideration, we have decided to change our name to Shine Healing Ministries. We want to expand far beyond our local equine facility and have a world-wide impact. Our new mission is to create opportunities where women can encounter God in a way that transforms their hearts and allows God-size dreams to be realized. We can’t wait to see the unstoppable wave of women who are set free to boldly share their unique and God-designed light with the world and we hope that you will continue to join hands with us to see this vision come to pass! With that said, we will not be providing equine assisted mental health counseling in the future. Instead we have chosen to focus on providing educational and spiritual growth opportunities through written and online materials, and in-person group experiences that guide women to healing and purpose. We believe connection and community lead to empowerment and that nothing can trump the power of an encounter with God. True healing happens when God’s heart and perspective intersect with our broken places! Be on the look-out for our first major project in the works, Shining Freely, a book about overcoming your past and setting your purpose free. We will also be releasing, The 40 Day Journey, a workbook and experience (both online and in-person), to empower others to encounter God, discover their unique identity in Christ, and experience true freedom! After the release of our written and online resources, we will be hard at work securing the funding to make the in-person group experiences happen. Our dream is to create a facility with a retreat like feel where individuals can get away from the craziness of life to encounter God’s heart and vision for them and walk out renewed and empowered to fulfill their God-size dreams. And finally, we will also be hosting Dare 2 Care community days where we come together to bless groups in our community and be the love of Christ. Be sure to keep an eye out for all they ways you can come alongside us and be a champion for the cause! Wow, that was a mouthful. We are so excited about what God is doing and the changes that are coming!
