Who We Are

 

heather-157-2Welcome to Light Up The Dark.  I’m Heather Oden, Founder, Director, and Chief Freedom Officer. Every person on our team has their own story…and we are overcomers.  Wherever you find yourself today, we want you to know that there is still hope.  There is a God who deeply loves you in the middle of this broken world and He intends to write good things- freedom, love, unity, and overcoming- into your life.  No matter where you find yourself today, there IS still good.  There is freedom.  We’ve found it.  It is our mission to share it, to empower others to find it, and to live in it together.  We do this through online content (Light Up The Dark Academy), personally reaching out through coaching, counseling, mentoring, and classes (Operation Restore), speaking to groups (Jacob’s Legacy), and walking together to create a new beginning (Lighthouse).  No matter what your past has held, your future is yet to be written.
