Review for Beautiful Brokenness Ministries, Bumpass, VA, USA
I've learned so much about Natural Horsemanship through this ministry, and it has really improved my relationship with my little mare, Remy. But the spiritual truths I've experienced in a new way are even more important. I'm a visual learner: through the ministry of Beautiful Brokenness, I've not only learned about Scriptural truths and principles - I've seen them. I've seen the relationship God desires to have with each of His children illustrated through Scooter's relationship with Katy. I've seen the Lord's vast love and tender care for me represented through Katy's affection and care for Scooter. I've learned leadership and relational skills and principles.
Every time I left after spending time with Katy and the horses from Beautiful Brokenness, I had received a new nugget of truth, word of wisdom, or powerful illustration to mull over, meditate on, or ponder. As I told my mom soon after I got involved with the ministry: "Every time Katy opens her mouth, some incredible truth comes out!" God has truly gifted Katy with the ability to recognize and communicate such amazing parallels between our relationships with our horses and His relationship with us.
The ministry's core message of identity - who we are to and in Christ, and who He is to and through us - is so relevant and is sorely needed by today's girls, who are being fed so many lies by our culture! They desperately need the falsehoods they've been believing, about God and themselves, to be broken down by Truth! And when truth is communicated in such a unique way, using those beautiful, majestic creatures that almost all girls are magnetically drawn to, it is doubly effective and can soften even the hardest of hearts.
God has used Beautiful Brokenness to deepen my understanding of and relationship with Him, and I'm excited to see the ministry continue to grow and expand so that it can touch even more lives!
