The Emerald Journey is a trauma informed mentorship program empowering survivors to heal from sexual trauma through the hope, healing, and freedom found in Jesus Christ!
1 in 5 girls is a victim of sexual abuse before the age of 18.
Up to 90% of sexually exploited girls were sexually abused as a child but never told anyone.
More than one third of women who report being raped before age 18 also experience rape as an adult.
We believe that "in a sea of billions, you are the one Emerald God sees."
Just like an Emerald must go through a process to become a precious jewel, we must go through a process of healing to shine brightly in our purpose!
WHY SHOULD I JOIN?
Through this faith based program, survivors of sexual trauma will confront the effects of trauma, dig up the roots of past experiences, and begin the road to healing and freedom--all alongside other survivors. This program creates a safe place to build community, accountability, and healthy relationships.
The Emerald Journey plays a preventative role in our efforts to fight sex-trafficking and sexual abuse with a faith based approach. Traffickers and predators will build relationships based on lies and are trained to spot weaknesses that are residue of our past wounds. Victims of sexual abuse are vulnerable targets for offenders. Our desire through this program is to bring hope to victims and provide tools for survivors to heal on this Emerald Journey.
HOW CAN I JOIN?
This trauma informed program is created exclusively for adult female survivors of sexual trauma including childhood sexual abuse, incest, sex trafficking, exploitation, or sexual assault.
Applicants must schedule an assessment call to discuss eligibility for the program.
This is a virtual program that serves survivors across the NATION!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
I love the women that I have grown close to and shared with. My circle is trusting and I'm glad I have a safe space to share whatever is going on with me and my journey to God-fearing women. We learn we are not alone on our journey. And though we might have different struggles or are on different levels of our journey we have each other.
The Emerald Journey is definitely an experience. Difficult at times but the love and commitment of the facilitators and other participants helps you push through it. I am a better woman because of this experience. God was able to clean out the brokenness and pain from my past trauma. I was able to see life through a different lense. I really believe that this experience helped me start the journey of healing from my childhood sexual abuse and it all takes place in a caring, controlled environment
It helped me focus more on the present. While a lot of what my present looks like now is a result of my past/memories/trauma, my present and my future don’t have to be traumatic or toxic. That was really refreshing.
"This program has had a huge impact on my life. It helped me to see and understand the root of many of my daily struggles. Because of this, I have been able to overcome huge obstacles in my life and shatter the bondage of silence about certain things that had previously held me captive. This truly is the perfect starting place for women to discover who they really are: strong powers and beautiful queens in and out!"
"This program blessed me in sooooo many ways! I got to learn and grow with some amazing women and learned so much about myself that I didn't know and [I learned] how to cover it with God's truth. I would truly recommend this program!"
"Not only are the women who lead the program incredible and truly have a heart for God’s people but they use those hearts to help those who are often overlooked and/or ignored."
“ This program was a life changing experience… I needed a safe place. I needed a place where I can go and feel a sense of freedom and peace. I needed a place where my brokenness could be exposed. Where the light could be shined upon those dark areas that I had hidden for so long. I needed a place where I could go and know that I wouldn’t be judged, condemned or frowned upon because of my past experiences and the things that I had been through…. I received nothing but encouragement, support and kindness from these sisters… I didn’t have to pretend to be something that I wasn’t like I’ve done for so many years but I was actually able to come in and be the true, authentic me… Through this program, through the topics and discussions, and through the sharing with my sisters, [my] layers are being peeled away one by one…. Through this program you are able to become free. You are able to become loving towards yourself and others. You are able to receive that peace that God has for us. And in the end you see that He has a purpose and plan for you.”
