Golashes & Flashlights
Golashes & Flashlights
It is typical for us to journey into some messy terrain. We are awed at every opportunity to wade in deep with our sisters in Christ – to those unexplored places within ourselves that may never have been visited before. Arm in arm, we’ll step in and shine the light of Christ, inviting Him to heal our wounds and guide us to Freedom.
One of our highest priorities is to get to know you and for you to get to know us. Becoming the women who we are created to be takes all of us. Raising our children to become the men and women they are created to be takes all of us. I need your support and encouragement. And you need mine. We learn from one another’s experiences and insights. And we remember that we are never alone. We belong to a Sisterhood. Woohoo! We are family.

A note from De:
Way back into my childhood, I recall daydreaming about the Prince who would ride into my life, rescue me from my circumstances and fill me up in every way. I didn’t yet know that I was searching for my Savior.
When reality left its clues, time and again, that none of the men in my life was my savior, I was hurt and confused. In my naivety, I began to believe that maybe something was wrong with me or that I wasn’t good enough. I bought into the lies that told me how I was supposed to feel, think, be…
Our Lord finally got my attention, albeit through a series of adverse events in my life, and gently and slowly, He healed my wounds. He strengthened my spirit, taught me how to resist Satan’s lies, and firmly rooted me in the Truth of who I am – His beloved daughter.
Through speaking and coaching, I am privileged to journeying alongside other women, also searching for their Truth. It is my utter joy to guide women in the discovery that no matter how long we’ve believed that lie of the enemy and no matter how many mistakes or poor choices have been made, His loving arms are always open and waiting for our return. Rejoice!
Laura Ercolino is Foundress of Hope’s Garden, a writer, artist and spiritual mentor. She co-leads Catholic women’s healing retreats for You Are Made New Ministry and Hope’s Garden. Artistic expression has played an important role in her life from an early age. In recent years, she experienced first-hand the healing power of creativity. In her therapeutic work to heal from betrayal trauma as well as childhood sexual trauma, she has integrated journal writing, poetry, and various artistic mediums. Laura feels called to share her creative talents and the wisdom she has gained from her journey so that other women may also experience hope and healing.
A note from Laura:
Throughout my life, God has romanced me through the beauty of paintings, poetry, and music. Beautiful art has always moved my soul and drawn me into the Beauty of Christ. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of days spent learning to oil paint with my grandmother.
When trauma and the subsequent post-traumatic stress disorder robbed me of words with which to give voice to my experiences and heartache, I searched for a new language. I was drawn back to the creative outlets I enjoyed when I was younger but now I discovered that art was a language of color, image, and symbol through which I was able to express the unspeakable. And as I created visual representations of the darkness I had known, I was repeatedly surprised to also see the healing power and the Light of God visible in my artwork.
God continues to turn ashes to beauty as I am now able to use Expressive Arts Facilitation to work with women in reclaiming their unique voice, and finding growth and healing through creativity. While walking alongside my sisters in Christ on their path to wholeness, I challenge them to create a masterpiece of their lives through God’s divine grace.
