Top Core Values

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

― Marianne Williamson



International Best Selling Author

Until Brené Brown hit our TEDx and TED screens with her early talks on vulnerability and shame, most of us would never discuss the things we were ashamed of. Shame feeds off fear and insecurity, and fear of discovery holds us in our shame.

The funny thing is that when we do shine the light on the things we're ashamed of, we often find that others have had the same experience and that what we have been hiding is something that deserves love and compassion, maybe even laughter, but not shame.


This is an important book, because it brings together the intersections of Narcissistic Abuse Recovery--Financial Poverty--Transformative Self-Healing and how shame inhibits all three.

This book addresses an issue that is often touched on in passing in conversations about financial wellbeing but is rarely covered in significant depth. Awareness is the first step, then comes the real work of finding the tools and achieving healing. Featuring the stories and how-to to the favourite healing modalities of 14 professionals serving people on their journeys out of poverty and into abundance including and beyond numbers.

"Ohhh thank you Holly, discovering this women’s community was just the thing I needed to heal, get back up and taking steps towards becoming myself again —where a lot of ministries fail to grasp the importance of solo-dating. I am forever grateful to be part of this community!
