Sharing my God Story of Provision, Protection, and Redemption

“My brokenness is a better bridge for people than my pretend wholeness ever was. Don’t be afraid to show up. Someone else needs to hear your story.” – Sheila Walsh

Hi. I’m Amber.  This is my attempt to show up.  I used to be really good at pretending to be whole, but now I am embracing my reality.  I don’t have all the answers, but I do have some serious love and compassion for other people.

With God, I am happy and whole as I type this to you.  I am here to inspire you to lean on the Healer who has brought me this far.

A bit of my story…

After being abused as a teenager by a “missionary” our family trusted, I, with two other brave girls, testified against him.

I dropped out of college.

I blamed all the wrong people for my pain and spiraled out of control.

A few years later, I met the “man of my dreams” at church.

When my daughter was 9 weeks old, my dream was crushed when he walked out the door.  My divorce was final 2 weeks shy of my one year anniversary.

Four years later, I found out my ex-husband, Shawn Grate is serial killer.  He’s on death row now.  I shared my story on Dr. Phil.

My goal in all of this is to point people to God.  Without Him, I’d be a non-functioning mess.

Thank you for stopping here.  I pray that my story points you to Someone greater than your deepest pain.

You are not alone and friend, you are loved.
