It’s time to close for restoration. Strip back the lies and restore the truth. Soul Restoration is a
curriculum created by Melody Ross of Brave Girls Club/Brave Living to help us shift thru the lies we tell
ourselves and the lies others have told us. With the aid of journaling prompts, and fun creative activities
we will discover that every person is a beautiful soul who is learning. It is never too late to begin again.
Hello, my name is Christa and I live in Owen Sound, Ontario. It's so beautiful here, and quiet and peaceful, and
surrounded by water. Lexi, Tommy and Loch, my niece and nephews, are the light in my life. They have
taught me so much about unconditional love. I love being their Auntie. I'm also a nurse and have been for
almost 15 years and my patients have taught me that it is possible to love a complete stranger, even if
only for a day.
About six years ago I had a life changing experience, one that truly taught me the importance of
self care and impact old wounds can have when left unhealed. Like everyone I have gone through a lot of
hard things, I've experienced loss, and my heart has been broken more than one time and I live with
I love to scrapbook and Soul Restoration came to me via a scrapbooking magazine. The magazine
talked about these two sisters who had created a safe place for women to heal and create art. I was
immediately intrigued and wanted to go to camp. Which surprised me because I never went anywhere
where I didn't know anyone. It used to make me feel really uncomfortable. I hopped online and discovered
all the camps for the next year were sold out. So I just let it be. Shortly after, my brother and I had to fly
to France to bring my mom home after her husband had died. That was really hard, for a number of
reasons. So, when I got home I decided to take Soul Restoration online. I was doing it for the art but got
so much more out of it. I realized, I had been feeling lost, that I didn't even know who I was anymore and
I needed to find my true self and become the women God intended me to be. Soul Restoration helped me
realize these things. Through Soul Restoration I gained skills that help me live my everyday life and gave
me the courage to ask for help when I suspected I was living with depression.
I believe in this curriculum so much that I drove 3,524 km to get to camp the first time. And
navigated O'Hare airport the second time. I found myself, and I'm not the only one who noticed.
Let's be real here, life is hard sometimes, really hard. No one gets out of this life without acquiring
some scars and wounds. And those wounds and scars, do not have to ruin your life. You can heal them
and live a beautiful big brave life. Everyone deserves to have healing. Everyone deserves to cast away
the lies they have believed about themselves their whole lives. Everyone deserves the chance to live a
brave life. I really, really want these things for you. That is why I am teaching Soul Restoration. I would
love for you to join me.
