Choosing Your Group

Brave Enough To Change uses both secular and biblical counseling tools to help group members process trauma while breaking unhealthy patterns of behavior, developing stronger relationships and a solid spiritual foundation. Contact us today to get started.



When partnering with churches and other organizations, Mary tapps into her 35 plus years of ministry development (experience such as starting a ministry at ground level and growing it to a thriving ministry area with a strong leadership base) to provide leadership training toward facilitating the Brave Enough curriculum, resources such as story videos and printed materials, and tip sheets on how to launch and grow a strong healthy and transformative Brave Enough Community.

Brave Enough is also a curriculum that can be incorporated into an existing small group structure or used within a group counseling setting.

Women’s bible study

Bible Studies

Similar to church small groups, the focus of Bible study groups is on healing and freedom. We also use teaching videos so that members can review the material. Bible study members will also experience the six disciplines of The Word, Worship, Prayer, Community, Celebration, and Telling Our Stories to foster spiritual growth and healing from emotional wounds. These groups should be led by someone who has completed the Brave Enough journey.

Women’s group counseling

Online Growth Groups

In growth groups, we take a biblical approach to our groups and include secular tools to help individuals connect with unprocessed pain (trauma). The focus of these groups are to provide a gentle biblical approach to processing trauma that has birthed lies about self, God, and others which results in self-sabotaging unhealthy relationships and habits. There is a weekly/monthly fee which includes 2 one-on-one sessions with Mary to develop and fine-tune individualized "Growth Action Plans."

Feel Connected & Safe

To ensure that every group member is engaged and feels connected, we’ve created a list of criteria and tools to help each person succeed in their goals for improved spiritual health. Our groups consist of no more than eight to ten people, sessions are held via Zoom, groups consist of members who are all the same gender, and group members will sign a covenant that adheres to strict confidentiality guidelines. With these parameters in place, we are able to provide a safe, comfortable space for each member to share their experiences, connect with their other group members, and experience healing and transformation.
