IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN TOLD TO BE AFRAID OF GOD…

hey loves!

today I just really want to talk to you about something a bit heavy that has been weighing down hard on me. it’s something that just recently became oh-so-clear to me, and I think it might be just the thing that sets us all a little bit more free. ❤

there’s a disgusting habit among people of corrupt power, to instill fear in the people they feel the need to control. usually this happens through very manipulative & subtle ways. and when these people creep into houses of worship & our spirituality, it can be downright abusive in the most life-changing and soul-deep ways… particularly because their un-Christlike biases are often handed down in teaching under the guise of absolute truth. (how do you think the church managed to condone slavery for so long?)

instilling a crippling fear in one’s victims is an age-old abuse tactic that every manipulator everywhere uses. but it isn’t one that God uses.

if you grew up in church, you’re probably quite familiar with the famous verse from proverbs 9… the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

I grew up believing that this meant I should be forever in fear of God. and yeah, you’re supposed to love Him as a father and follow Jesus… but in the very core of what I learned, at the foundation of my very faith… was fear.

Braven Haven guided wholeness journeys…

+ are personal, one-on-one explorations of the self with moriah
+ take place via email & video chat
+ are 7 weeks long… one week to explore & implement each of the facets of wholeness
+ begin with a deeply comprehensive survey to see where in your life wholeness is lacking
+ are completely confidential & never shared with anyone else
+ cost just $50

so what’s the goal?

the goal of a guided wholeness journey is to kick-start your life-long journey in wholeness by helping you create & practice daily rituals that you look forward to, which help to foster healing habits in your life. when you create space for growth & healing everyday… growth & healing happen, bringing you closer to wholeness.

when you sign up for your guided wholeness journey (exactly $50!), you’ll get to explore…
+ your full survey
+ the downloadable Journey Journal
  this little journal, which is full of prompts, questions, and encouragement, is what you’ll use to explore your thoughts & write out your goals during this 7-week journey.
+ a downloadable copy of This Holy Becoming
the 21-day study is all about figuring out who YOU were designed to flourish as, underneath the rubble that we’ve created in trying to become what we and everyone else expects of us. why? because only in living in that state of original True Design do we start to understand what we are meant for, what the gospel is all about, and how we relate to Jesus- Love Incarnate. this is where we find our purpose, become women of strength and bravery and boldness, and learn to live under grace instead of the bondage of shame.
+ access to one-on-one guidance by Moriah (creator & author of Brave Haven) via emailing and 3 video chat sessions

make no mistake, the Guided Wholeness Journey requires dedication… both your time (an hour or less a day), and your heart (you gotta be all-in). but I can promise, from experience, it’s worth it.
