Women of Focus

The Butterfly Movement digs to the root of common forms of brokenness. It is a raw and transparent journey of introspection and self-reflection. The Women of Focus may be comprised of women that are diverse in age, race, background and walks of life. Some may have been raised in the church and some may have never walked into a church. Some may be single, some may be married. Some may live in the suburbs, some may live in homeless shelters. We understand that shackles come in many forms and we will work in unison to address each and every need with compassion and understanding.
