Broken Beautiful Story Group
Beth Hamilton
 (trained at the Allender Center for Abuse & Trauma in Seattle, WA) will be leading 2 groups. One is Broken Beautiful Story and the other is a Wounded Heart group. Both of these groups have their roots in the wonderful work done by Dan Allender. Here is what Dan has to say about Beth…

“Beth is a gifted, wise, and generous story guide. She is a spiritual midwife who will help those in labor form their heart into a deeper love for Jesus. I am confident that she will be a formative and formidable presence of the Kingdom of God in the life of those who want more than mere resolution of heartache.” Dan Allender

Connections Group
Erica Stegner has been interning with our Counseling Center for a year. She works part-time in a support role for a large church in town within their counseling and support and the women’s ministries. Having experienced great brokenness and healing in her own life, Erica considers it a great honor to walk with others as they work through their process of healing. She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Trevecca Nazarene University. 

A Little about the Connections Group….
When we are constantly hearing messages such as “I’m never good enough.” and “What will people think?” we have a difficult time connecting with other people. For this reason, it is important to develop an understanding of shame and the role it plays in our ability to connect. Join us for this 10-week class, as we learn to define shame, practice empathy, explore triggers and vulnerabilities, practice awareness, and reach out to others. The curriculum for this group was developed by Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW and includes a copy of I Thought It Was Just Me (But it Isn’t). Class is limited to 10 people.
