Welcome to Wonderfully Made
It’s not easy living in our culture today.
Our world bombards us with lies and pressure to be more, do more and hustle for our worth. Some days feel overwhelming.
If you have been there, you are not alone.
Today, one in four young women are living with a mental health challenge, and the toxic narrative our culture sells has many of us feeling directionless and insignificant.
At Wonderfully Made we believe there is a better way.
Whatever your beliefs or questions about God, whatever your faith tradition — you are welcome and belong here.
We believe that when a girl or woman knows her God-given value and identity it changes everything. We have seen that self-esteem often falls short on its own. But in a personal relationship with Jesus, we discover the love, worth and identity we were created for.
The truth is: You are profoundly loved and your life matters.
Read the Father’s Love Letter to learn more about God’s heart for you. We are so glad you are here.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit Christian ministry dedicated to helping young women and the women who love them know their true value, while encouraging and equipping them to live spiritually, mentally and emotionally healthy lives.
“I praise you [God] because I am fearfully [lovingly] and wonderfully made.”
I started Wonderfully Made in my early twenties after experiencing severe depression which left me hospitalized and wanting to end my life. It was there in the hospital I began to read the Bible for the first time in my life. As I poured over the Gospels I discovered Jesus loved the broken. I was as broken as a girl could and in the hospital chapel, while a woman sang Amazing Grace I surrender my life to Christ.
I’ve hard times since but I’ve never been the same. I have experienced healing and freedom through my relationship with God, professional help and strong family support.
“I believe God can do beautiful things with a broken life.”
Today I spend my time directing this ministry, hosting our Wonderfully Made podcast, writing books and mentoring young women. I am a Certified Life Breakthrough Coach, speaker, mentor and am passionate about helping girls and young women discover the identity, love and worth they’ve been created. I live in North Santa Barbara County in California and love surfing and adventuring and up down our golden coast with my husband Paul and our Golden Retriever Gidget.
As you explore our site, I hope your soul will be lifted and that you will be reminded that you are not alone on this journey or in the struggles you face, that God deeply loves you and is with you.
