On the outside it looked like everything was going for her! Made it to Hollywood on American Idol, sang as a back up singer and traveled the world with Katy Perry, but found herself so deep in depression that she tried to commit suicide.

Secret to Healing

Childhood Rejection

3:47 I think I always felt like I couldn't be free. For most of my life I was concerned about what other people thought, being accepted, not being rejected. I grew up in church, but was really wounded in the church.

5:04 Tried to commit suicide

How to did up the lies from childhood and one by one invited the holy spirit into that moment and asked Jesus where he was. At the end of the process.

when I felt seen and loved and known by God that deeply and intimately I felt like I could do anything he calls me to do because he loves me. That's when I started stepping out in faith in a new way.

[8:15] Write Down Every Single Thing in Your Life has Hurt You

Tasha shares what her therapist taught her to do at this retreat center to heal from childhood trauma. She took each instance and did this process. At first it will make things harder, she says, but just wait, healing is on the way.

[10:14] Describe the moment, describe what happened, where you are, and what are you feeling.

Tasha shares about a moment as a child when she tried to share an experience with her father, and was dismissed. She told herself "I'm not worthy of getting to I'll never let anyone know the real me." Go through this process with the things on your list. Write it in your journal. What did the room look like, what did it smell like, who was there, it sounds hard, but it will be worth it.

[13:01] Ask yourself this: Where is Jesus in the Room?

Tasha, says that's the moment she began balling her eyes out. God stands outside of time, He was there when that thing happened to you, but he is still there. What does he want to say to you now? Tasha began to cry because she realized Jesus was there, standing next to her at the table, looking at her intently, and HE WANTED to hear what she had to say. He was EAGER to get to know her. That's when you begin to COMBAT THE LIE.

"I felt truth move from my head to heart in that moment and it dispelled the lie." -Tasha Layton
