Review for Beautiful Brokenness Ministries, Bumpass, VA, USA
I am the mom of a client. My son, Matthew has Autism. He was blessed to come to Beautiful Brokenness through the RISE program sponsored by Lake of the Woods Church. Katy taught him to lead the horse, White Star, and to Motion for her to stand on a platform. He brushed her and hugged her. He had an enormous smile on his face during the entire time he worked with Katy and White Star. I found myself wiping tears of joy several times. I had been looking for a meaningful “job” for Matthew. Because he seemed to love the horse so much, I asked if I could bring Matthew on a weekly basis to volunteer by cleaning out the barn stalls. Katy welcomed Matthew and I to take on this role. For Matthew, this is his “JOB”. He tells people he works at Beautiful Brokenness horse farm. It has become a weekly joy for him to interact with the horses. He identifies himself as having purpose helping the horses. We have animals at home but there is something about the horses that Matthew loves. Beautiful Brokenness has given him a unique opportunity to serve. It has truly been a blessing for our family!
