Our Featured Warrior is Brittany Shelton. Brittany is not afraid to be vulnerable, to share her pain and trauma, and all in the hopes that it helps just one. She is an amazing show of strength and authenticity in the recovery community and I am so grateful to know her. Be sure and check out all of Brittany’s links below and connect with this great woman in recovery.
Brittany is a mom to three boys, doing her best to break generational cycles in her family by leading by example. For over thirteen years, she has been living a completely sober life, and with God’s strength, learning to better care for herself as a woman left damaged by Complex Childhood Trauma.
Through her healing, she discovered her gifts and her purpose. She spends her downtime writing on her Blog or encouraging other men and women struggling with the damaging effects of having adverse childhood experiences on her Facebook page. Her three published books reflect her primary goal of offering support to adult children who were victimized, who are finally seeking healing and peace as adults.
She lives in Kansas City with her husband and their three boys.
Brittany’s Purpose Statement:
What drives me is never allowing time to erase my memory of my day one. I remember the deep feelings of defeat; of wanting to give up because I didn’t think I deserved better. I want other people to know that The Good News means that there is Hope. It’s a hope that is real, powerful, accessible, and life-changing. That they are worthy of belonging and love, and restoration. Healing is the most challenging work I have ever attempted, it’s not pretty, and is certainly not perfect- but His peace is, and it will carry you to where you are supposed to be.
