Sonya Boettcher  –  BIO

Sonya was quite young when she found out she was pregnant and had an abortion soon afterwards.  She lived in silent grief and shame for many years.   She carried the hurt, guilt and sadness in her heart due to the unresolved loss of a baby that she never got to hold.   The Living in Color program gently walked her through the many stages of the grief journey and rebuilt her towards her true potential in Christ and perhaps for the first time in her life, she saw her value as Christ does.  Her life went from living in the grey to truly Living in Color.  The program does bring closure and healing to a silent, open wound that many women carry after having an abortion.  Sonya had received counseling to address her abortion, however, while she had made some progress, she never truly felt healed until she walked through the Living in Color program at 52 years old.  Sonya is passionate for other women like her who are suffering in silence and are looking for help. 

Sonya received her training in Canada to facilitate and direct the program here in South Africa.  Sonya has made Cape Town her home base since 2014, where she lives with her husband Andy.  Generous international donors have allowed Sonya to offer the Program Material and all program-related counseling free of charge.  Sonya is currently partnering with Hillsong South Africa, where she is offering the program out of their Century City location.  If you are interested to become a client of one of her next program offerings, please click the “Take the Next Step” button.
