Begin Living Forward

stop letting perfectionism keep you from
achieving your dreams!

Hi, I'm Faye Bryant

I help people who have endured trauma—whether of their own making, such as addiction and poor choices, or pushed upon them through abuse—recognize they have worth and purpose. I help people build a life they are excited to live and a legacy they’re pleased to leave. 

I experienced the trauma of parents who weren’t present for me even when with me. An outcast even to them. I know the pain of loneliness and neglect. 

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), also known as childhood trauma, including bullying, lies, rape, abuse, and betrayal, all ruled my life. I have known loneliness, hurt, fear, shame, self-recrimination, to the brink of suicide. The path of DEATH.

Discovering my true identity in Christ and embracing my God-designed purpose has liberated me, allowing me to live fully in the freedom of love, acceptance, strength, confidence, and healing. Now, I walk with my head held high.

Knowing the paths you may be walking uniquely positions me to guide you around the pitfalls to a better path. The path of LIFE.

Embrace my RISE Method to uncover your true identity in Christ and unlock the power to fulfill your God-designed purpose. This transformational approach equips you with the tools to confidently build a life worth living and a legacy worth leaving, using your past merely as a stepping stone to your divine destiny.

Learn how chasing imperfection is a better way to live!

Grandma, Mom, and Me Saga

Three generations of strong women in the same family. Their lives were separated by years, yet so similar that they could have overlapped entirely.

All three endured trauma in childhood that affected the decisions throughout their lives: lies that tainted their viewpoints, betrayal that built distrust. 

Louise is Grandma. She had to grow up at age eight and suffered a lost childhood. Marriage and children brought great joy and greater pain. 
Elaina is Mom. She had to grow up at age 12 on the heels of losing her two favorite family members. Marriage and children brought great joy, but also abuse, betrayal, and grief. 
Beth is Me. Episodes of betrayal came early in life as did trauma that no child should endure. Marriage and a child brought happiness, but also abuse, betrayal, and grief. 
All three women clung to their faith and rediscovered love and family and the strength to live life forward — to the fullest. 

“Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Books for Your Faith Walk​

What do you think about in the shower? Where do those thoughts take you? 

Slippery issues such as what integrity really is, the right way to worship, judging, and God’s sovereignty are tackled in this conversational book, Ramblings From the Shower, by author Faye Bryant.

 The digital devotional you’ve always wanted, Coffee, Bible, Journal, is filled with approachable down-to-earth explanations of scripture coupled with a daily challenge to help you grow closer to God. 

Each of the 40 days includes a beautiful photo to spark your thoughts and enhance your memorization of the scripture.

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NLT‬

Coaching to Begin Living Forward...


Feel, Deal, Heal

No matter what caused the trauma that holds you hostage, there is a process to move from broken to beautiful, from captivity to freedom. Through feeling those old feelings, now in a safe space, you can deal with what happened, and your healing begins.

We will use the Celebrate Recovery curriculum to dig to the core of your pain and trauma. We’ll visit the past, but not reside there. We’ll inventory honestly and completely the situations that changed your life to determine how to leave them in the past and walk head-held-high into the future.


Know You, Know Your Why

Every one of us was created with a divine purpose. We were given specific and unique talents, skills, and abilities.

Noted Swiss psychologist Carl Jung said, “The most damaging thing in the life of a child is the unlived life of the parent.” It’s time to live your life. No more coasting through life feeling lost and without direction. Learn how to say yes to the people and events that matter most and no to those that don’t. Take control of your calendar and experience margin. Create a life worth living defined by purpose and passion.

with FOCUS

Become Unstoppable

We are living in the attention economy where you are the product. The score is measured with eyeballs and eardrums. Your attention, even for a few seconds, translates into cold, hard cash, and marketers are willing to manipulate and even hack you to gain it.

Sound familiar? You clear your schedule, wake up early, and inform others that you’re unreachable. You’re taking a day to work on your dream. Then the phone rings, the messages buzz, the notifications pop up and your dream is sidelined and sabotaged… again.


Is it really possible to apply scripture to your life here and now? 

God has promised that when we seek Him with all  our hearts, we’ll find Him.  Join me as we look at Bible verses and see how they fit into our everyday, walking-around lives. 

I’d love to help you accomplish what you might think is impossible, maturing in your faith day by day.

“With man it is impossible, but not with God.
For all things are possible with God.”
~ Mark 10:27

Living Forward Podcast

The Living Forward Podcast is based on the belief that
healing, purpose, and focus are crucial for true success
in building a life worth living and a legacy worth leaving.

Each week Faye will address topics and discuss resources
to help you move out of stagnation into a life well lived,
including interviews with authors and influencers to
discuss their latest books and insights on things like
recovery from past trauma, finding and living in purpose,
and gaining the focus necessary to live forward now
and in the future.

“Faye and I began working together when I recognized that I could not complete my book project alone. Truly, she was a Godsend. After an initial interview to determine if this was a good fit for both of us, we began a coaching relationship. Faye helped me 1) clarify my goals, both long and short term, and 2) determine the next best steps all along the way. She is both a great listener and great communicator. I love the judgment-free zone she creates to help me achieve my goals. I feel valued and validated with Faye. Thank you, Faye!”

“I met Faye at my first Ladies Retreat at a cozy little cabin in Townsend. We had a small group and spent a lot of sweet time with the Lord. I didn’t think it could get any better but I was wrong. Faye joined us on Saturday with a little activity that she called “Value Proposition Statement”. This helped me to understand my unique roles, strengths and calling in Christ. She had such words of wisdom, a sweet smile and a heart to help. It was easy to develop a friendship with Faye in just a short time. She helped me so much that day & even through the year when I needed prayer and advice. I value our friendship. Thank you Faye”
