Beautiful Brokenness Ministry truly has been life changing for me. The picture of brokenness Katy uses to show us how much God loves us truly opened my heart and mind to seeing God's love for me in a way life never before. I wish everyone could see the presentation live and in person. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially young women.

Katy and her horse, Scooter are the epitome of trust. It amazes me how they work and understand each other by touch.
Katy is such a gentle person in character and knowledgable in God's love and forgiveness.
It has been a blessing to know Katy and her work.

My grand daughter, was broken when she came to live with us. She had been once again rejected by another mom. Her dad was in Iraq fighting a war. Through loving the horse and caring for it, all the anger, hurt, rejection and fear that God would reject her too was lifted. Katie showed her God's unconditional love and acceptance.

I enjoy giving to organizations that share Jesus while helping others. Beautiful Brokenness made it to the seven I support, because I've seen Katy's love for Jesus shine from her as she loves others (and horses) and because I experienced a nudge from God to support her fresh, growing ministry.

My daughter had the truly unique opportunity to spend time working with Katie in Beautiful Broken Ministries. As time passed I began to see that Katie makes connections in unexpected ways. Her gentle approach with those around her, both human and equine, is disarming in a way that allowed my daughter to grow in ways that I could have never anticipated. What happens at Beautiful Brokenness isn't magic, but it sure feels that way sometimes. It is something that is difficult to explain and can probably only be understood by experiencing Katie's very special message in person.

Katy and Beautiful Brokenness Ministry is top notch. The love of our Lord Jesus and the love of his creations and how Katy's soft tenderness of love is around all that know her. Her horses, Scooter in particular, he was so broken and now he is so precious, trusting, loving to all that meet him. The seminar/clinics where Katy shares her love and knowledge is precious to everyone that attends. She demonstrates such a beautiful picture of healing. I am so grateful to know Katy and witness her ministry with the horses and people. Keep spreading the word Katy!

Little did I know when Katy and I became friends that I would be the recipient of her unique ministry, Beautiful Brokenness! My background isn't much different from then many of you out there, but I can tell you, it was through her ministry that I truly found myself. I experienced healing on a level that no other therapist or councilor I'd ever seen had been able to achieve with me, a lasting healing, one where I for the first time experienced peace that continues to this day! Katy uses the relationship with horses to effectively demonstrate our relationship with our Heavenly Father. I will be forever grateful for all that she has shown me through this unique ministry!! Thank You Katy for helping me to truly enjoy my life.

The first thing I noticed when I drove up to the farm was the peaceful expression on the horses. Scooter and Dreamsicle were both loose in the yard. They were neither trying to get away (from annoyance, boredom, or fear) nor were they rudely walking over people like spoiled pets. Instead, they were simply hanging out with us like fellow members of a happy herd.
Over the next several months of working with the horses of Beautiful Brokenness, I came to learn a lot of things about myself -- my strengths and weaknesses and how to work with them. And Katy was always around with a gentle, easy-to-learn lesson about God and His awesome love for us. I would recommend this ministry to anyone.

Katy and Beautiful Brokenness are such a beautiful picture of redemption and healing. We are so grateful to Katy and her ministry. Our daughter came from a very difficult situation at an orphanage. The love and healing she has received through Katy and her horses are immeasurable.

Through Beautiful Brokenness, Katy combines the Exchanged Life truths with the unique therapy of natural horsemanship. This enables her to reach both youth and adults who have experienced trauma at the hands of humans by showing them God's love and safeness through horsemanship. I highly recommend Katy and her equine friends!
