Help Give Healing
To the Suffering
Within beEmboldened, we continue to launch new services that best help those suffering from religious harm and abuse. Our new sponsorship program is a huge move toward healing and rebuilding for those who have wrongfully suffered in this way!
Will you help us help them by giving to their financial need in the midst of their healing and rebuilding journey? We don't want resources to be the reason they don't get the support they have finally found.
Help Us Help Them
Working with beEmboldened and seeing God providing every step of the way gave me and my family hope in the midst of our darkest and most agonizing experience, when we felt as if our world had been flipped upside down. beEmboldened was, in every sense, a God-send to us, and now a part of this incredible story of God's power to work miracles and bring light in darkness.
Working with beEmboldened has been incredibly validating and healing. Religious conditioning can be invisible and run deep, even when we think we've left it behind.
I have so much gratitude for what you all have done and have been tearing up each time I think about writing this all and trying to summarize it. We got our loved one back. How can I express what this means?
Choosing to speak up, to ask for help, to seek counsel, has been one of the few sensible choices I have ever made in my life. And I thank God it happened. I have been speaking with beEmboldened only for a few months, and yet I can already see a difference.
What Sets Us Apart
beEmboldened exists to provide support in the prevention of and healing from harmful religious experiences.
The world of cults and religious abuse is messy. Good information and support can be hard to find, but this doesn't have to remain true. We are committed to offering you a trustworthy organization to serve as your hub for awareness, resources, training, and support. We want to be the place you know you can go for accurate information, helpful tools, and well-equipped support professionals throughout the world.
Through the years, we have developed a growing list of resources to help make all the difference for those suffering from religious abuse. And we are committed to continuing to do so.
Thank you for helping this dream become a reality for countless individuals and families who have been manipulated and exploited in the name of Christ!

Why is Sponsorship Essential?
Financial exploitation is often part of someone's religious abuse story, and we need to do something about this. Currently, we have individuals who were tragically impacted by harmful religious leadership and are in need of support services, but they don't have the resources.

"For 2.5 years, I was part of a group that preached the Bible is not the Word of God, the Church is evil, and that "true" believers would never sin. During this time, I was taught to keep myself separate from the world, so I didn't watch TV, celebrate holidays, or do anything fun. All of this fed into my existing abuse experience.
I am seeking mentorship to heal from my abuse and to learn how to give grace to myself in my church and faith journey"

Change is happening, but they still need your help!
Sponsorship candidates are vetted by the bE team for need, and are required to contribute what they are able toward their services. Your support fills in the gap that stands in the way of them moving forward toward healing and rebuilding.
"In my religious abuse experience, I was told what to wear, what I could and couldn't do, and who I could hang out with. Iwas manipulated into a marriage that I didn't believe was healthy, and then was coerced into staying in that marriage, even though he was abusive to me and our kids.
I I was told my negative emotions were due to a lack of knowing God and having a relationship with Him and that I needed to try harder and eventually would get it."
Hobbies: Family, Coffee, Reading
"I grew up in a high-control environment. I am unlearning a lot of legalism. It affected my view of God as angry and led to me hating myself for not measuring up. I was kicked out as a young teen, and it caused me to walk away from my faith for a time. I experienced intense rejection from others in my church.
I want to heal from bad views of God and learn how to detect manipulation and dangerous church leadership. I want to grow and grow in my faith.
