Chantell Leonie Hayles
As a young child Chantell Leonie Hayles battled a number of issues – low self-esteem, insecurities, feelings of rejection, and a feeling of worthlessness. Searching for a ‘father figure’, she ended up in the world of lap dancing, leading a very promiscuous life. When she was 23, a dramatic encounter with God changed everything. Chantell walked out of a ‘gentlemen’s club’ and straight into church. Chantell is the author of Beauty for Ashes and today she shares her story of transformation, how God has set her free from shame and the emotional wounds of the past and given her a brand new start.

Amanda spent years bedbound, totally disabled with a severe form of ME, after an unexpected illness. Early in her diagnosis, she knew she had a choice, would she allow the illness to make her bitter? Or make her better? Eventually one day, she felt God speak to her and tell her it was time to go to church. Having not left the house for years, this seemed totally impossible, but little by little, God began to heal Amanda from not only the ME, but also emotional wounds from the past. Today, Amanda speaks in churches and at conferences, sharing the love of God and ministering to people facing similar situations.
