How to Remove the Burden of Shame with Latoya Mathews

Powered by RedCircle

Welcome to this episode of Redefining Wealth, where we are focusing on the theme of “Be Free.” Today, I’m joined by Latoya Mathews, a woman of courage and resilience, as we explore the power of embracing one’s story and breaking free from the chains of shame. In this month’s theme of “Be Free,” we are on a journey of faith and fearlessness, recognizing that true wealth encompasses the freedom to live authentically and pursue our deepest desires. Latoya’s journey embodies the essence of liberation, inspiring us to confront our past traumas and rewrite the narratives that have held us captive.

Latoya is a grace-filled freedom coach with a reputation as a beacon of hope for leading women who have experienced shame and self-condemnation to wholeness and freedom. She spearheaded and launched a host of dynamic faith-based initiatives in her quest to see women empowered and set free from emotional, childhood, and broken relationship trauma. She hosts an annual three-day retreat entitled The Free Woman: The Sacred Space for Women to Gather and Heal. She’s here today to share a bit about her debut memoir Unveiled Freedom.

*DISCLAIMER: If you are sensitive to the topic of abortion, this may not be the episode for you because that is a part of Latoya’s story. Many of us have things in our lives that have kept us ashamed and tried to abort us from freedom. There are things that we were told to feel shame for and instantly felt shame for that have been following us our whole lives.
