The mission of the I Am Brave Foundation is to love, support, and encourage women in the community of Lafayette County. Our heart is to bring hope and purpose to those going through difficult and unforeseen circumstances. Teenage pregnancy, losing a job or career, divorce, sickness, financial problems, death of a loved one, or just life itself can leave us feeling lost and all alone. We want to bring awareness to these and other issues in which women today face and the loss of identity they can bring. Most importantly we want to let them know they are not alone, and God’s desire is to bring them above and beyond their circumstances….God’s love for them is perfect….He has purpose and healing for their lives and is calling them to live BRAVE!

We will work to connect these ladies with Christian ministries, counselors, businesses and other organizations as well as vocational training programs and job placement organizations.

We want to offer a safe, loving, caring environment filled with the Holy Spirit that will allow openness, honesty, transparency, repentance, transformation, and deliverance. We all struggle as women, most of us mask or hide our hurts and insecurities. It’s time we are real with each other that we uplift one another…that we join forces and help each other through the difficult times in life. Life may have come against you hard and knocked you off your feet. You may feel broken, BUT no matter your circumstances, rest assured one thing remains….Christ restores broken things. Listen and hear Him say, you are beautiful! You are redeemed! You are accepted! You are valuable! You are enough! YOU ARE BRAVE!

In the day when I cried out, You answered me,
And made me bold with strength in my soul.

Psalm 138:3
