about this episode…

Today’s guest, Heatherly Brammer, shares about a day that changed her life 11 years ago when she was wounded after an armed robbery. She walks us through that day, what she knew to be “final thoughts” and how she has healed physically, emotionally and spiritually. Rachel and Heatherly cover anxiety, what to do when our worst fears become reality, forgiveness versus resentment and how to choose joy in the midst of a broken world.

about heatherly…

Heatherly was born and raised in Manning, SC and is a 2007 graduate of the University of South Carolina. She married her high school sweetheart, Alex in 2006. They have two boys, Jackson (7) and Hudson (5) and very active springer spaniel named Scout.

a few things they mentioned…


Highlands College
If you follow me on Instagram and hang out with me via stories, you may have seen me attend something called “chapel” with Highlands College here in Alabama. 

Since posting, there was a really fun, huge response of you that wanted to know where in the world I was and what sort of college would have a worship service like that. Highlands College is a biblical higher education institution that exists to supply the local church with leaders of character to fulfill the great commission. Students have the opportunity to grow in knowledge and understanding of God’s Word through academic classes taught by degreed experts and obtain a Bachelor’s Degree with their programs.

After graduation, students have the opportunity to go through a placement process, where they are able to be positioned within a local church to further fulfill the Great Commission. Students are offered internships and job placements all over the world, from Peru to Japan, and beyond. 

If you feel like you’re in a season where you’ve identified a calling, or maybe not, but would like to grow in leadership, character formation and spiritual development, Highlands College and one of their programs may be for you!
