Ashley Easter is a trained victim advocate, an author, a founder of an internationally attended abuse survivor conference, CEO of Courage 365, a television producer, an ordained reverend, an international speaker, an empowerment coach, and Vice-President of Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests.

I was lucky to create a Leaning Forward conference with all these women and their wisdom!

Leaning Forward is the title of a book by Karl and Laura Forehand about moving beyond the confines of organized religion. It is also the title of an online conference we have hosted for several years. This year, we decided to host a series of podcasts primarily to help us understand religious trauma and how to move forward. We are also hosting an online conference with the understanding that amplifying women’s voices is probably the most important component.

This is a conference powered by women but designed for men and women who want to heal from trauma and identify ways to do better in the future!
Ashley Easter shared “The Intersection of Patriarchy and Abuse.”
