#17. Lies We Believe—Healing Trauma in the Lives of Christian and Muslim Women through Arts Ministry and Truth

Jami Staples discovered a unique approach to reveal lies and trauma that often ensnare Christian and Muslim women – same lies, different contexts.

Through the Truth Collective, Christian women are empowered to see themselves through God’s eyes—with inherent value—and be empowered to heal from trauma. Then, Christian women can be free to humbly and boldly engage Muslim women who share similar experiences.

Jami looks at how arts ministry, virtual tea parties and relationships are vital parts of this ministry.

What is Trauma?

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why it’s important for Christian women to have access their own transformation testimony

  • How unhealed trauma can impact identity, shame and relationships

About the Guest:

Jami Staples is the Founder and CEO of The Truth Collective — TTC. The ministry invites women to know, believe and share the truth of who God is and how God sees women.

Over a period of time, the Lord broke Jami’s heart and called her to this ministry. While in East Africa with her husband, she was immersed in a local Somali community and studied Islam. Upon returning to America, Jami worked with Crescent Project and realized that a significant portion of the Western Church resisted reaching out to Muslims with the gospel. But, why?

The answer to that question shapes TTC’s ministry to Christian women and then to Muslim women. Different context, the same lies and both have a need for Truth.

Jami graduated from Bethel University in St. Paul, MN with a degree in Communications and a minor in Biblical and Theological Studies.
