07 Mar Gem Revealed Podcast Ep 26: Carla Shellis – Empowering Women Rescued from Sexual Exploitation
This week on the Gem Revealed Podcast–a topic very different from our typical discussions, but so deeply important 💙 Carla Shellis is the Founder of Bochy’s Place, a safe home for women rescued from sexual exploitation & trafficking. They break the cycle of exploitation by leading them into a new normal, empowering them to build the character and integrity to stay there.
Carla lives with a passion to build women into the very best they can be. From complete brokenness to a simple refreshing, her vision is to equip and educate women at the root level with easy to understand skill sets necessary to rebuild or enhance their day to day lives. Bochy’s Place opened in December 2017 and is focused on restoring the lives of girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking and exploitation. Her goal is to enhance these women emotionally, physically and spiritually according to Gods design so that they can dramatically interrupt and change the course of life into freedom and success!
Carla believes when one woman is healed and set free, an entire family and community will be transformed as well.
In this powerful conversation, Carla shares the critical information you must know about sex trafficking (but probably don’t!) as well as the techniques she implements with the women with whom she works at Bochy’s Place to empower and develop a sense of self worth (no spoilers, but this is stuff we ALL need to hear.)
