Greetings, friends of ATB! I am Allison, one of the newer team members, and I am excited to co-labor with the team at ATB.
After a life of destructive decisions, I began a personal relationship with Jesus Christ in 2007 that changed the trajectory of my entire life.
In 2008, I was led to become a certified Life Coach helping women thrive in life, relationships, and to reach their dreams. Between 2008 and 2014, I worked on healing and telling my story through printed word. In 2014, I released my book, Desperate for Love, with the hope of changing one life. Since its release, many have found a connection and a more authentic understanding of God's love for them. Some have been propelled to move into their greater purpose. During the following years, I worked as an independent contractor serving non-profit organizations in developing websites, organizing events, creating print and digital collateral, e-books, and digital marketing. I also helped Across The Bridge with digital needs on a volunteer basis. The Lord allowed me time to find my groove in living His way.
In 2020, after a season of serving on a prayer team for a women's ministry, I took a break, except for some volunteer work with ATB. It was during those three years that I gained a more profound understanding of my specific purpose.
It is woven into my heart to share how to be free from the wounding moments in our lives. I want people to know we can uncover the trauma and heal the wounds of that trauma in our hearts. Whether our injuries are from bullying, rejection, abandonment, abusive words, harmful actions, or the absence of a parent, there is a journey from the scars of trauma and brokenness to living in freedom and wholeness through the power of our Almighty God.
In late 2022, Glenn, a decades-long friend, invited me to work with the ATB team managing the website and creating collateral materials. Glenn has given me the honor of sharing my artistic creations, my book Desperate for Love, and messages of hope and healing to those crossing the bridge.
I look forward to meeting each of you. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve alongside the other team members of Across The Bridge.
He works all things together for good to those who love Him! Romans 8:28
He is close to the broken hearted. And binds up their wounds. Psalms 147:3
Praises to our Great God!
