I AM H.E.R. is a nonprofit that aims to help women and children who are survivors of sexual abuse and trauma achieve and maintain spiritual & emotional healing, empower them to live life on purpose, with purpose, and restore them into the individuals they were created to be.
We seek to break the cycle of brokenness by providing Christian counseling services to women and children who have survived sexual abuse and trauma.
I AM H.E.R. was birthed out of my healing process. In December 2021, after yet another failed relationship, I finally decided to break the cycle of dysfunction and get serious about my healing process. I began to fast, pray, connect with communities of believers, study the Word, and read various self-help books to assist me along my healing journey. One day while reading Woman Evolve, a book written by my best friend in my head, Sarah Jakes Roberts, I was challenged with answering the question, "When did you get stuck?" Well, baby, I cannot explain the flood of emotion that came over me when I examined the traumatic events of my life. Suddenly, I returned to the 10-year-old version of myself and felt every feeling that came along with being sexually violated as a young girl. I was stuck again. I could hardly breathe as I sat on the bar stool in my kitchen. I screamed and I cried, "Why God, why me? Why did he do that to me?" I had my journal and pen all prepared to write the answer, but God allowed me to feel it again, and boy did it hurt again! But it was at that moment that I said, "Never again!"
It was then that I decided that I would never again enter relationships as a broken version of myself. I decided I was done using relationships as a means of distracting myself from the pain of what I had gone through. It was also at that point that God showed me I was asking the wrong questions. I was worried about the "why,” but he was concerned with the "who." Who have I become by neglecting the work to heal? Who can use all things and work them together for my good? And who is waiting on me to transform my pain into purpose so I can help them be free?
Pastor Jerry Flowers says, "When the enemy can't take you out, he'll break your heart." Well, y'all, the enemy has broken this heart one time too many because I have never been more determined to make every tear I've shed, every pain I've endured, and every broken piece of my life mean something! I AM H.E.R. is not just another cute nonprofit or philanthropic venture someone created to make themselves feel like a good person. I am H.E.R., and I am fighting for my life! The life I was supposed to have before the enemy used childhood trauma in an attempt to steal it from me. And not only am I fighting for the life I am supposed to have, but I'm going to help you and your loved ones fight for theirs too!
Oh, he's BIG MAD, y'all!
