Our focus is on helping survivors embrace their past, break free from the burdens of shame and guilt, and find the strength to rebuild their lives. At the core of our mission is the belief in helping individuals discover their God-ordained purpose, unlocking their potential and inspiring a sense of hope and purpose.
We believe that the journey of healing can often lead to greater breakthroughs when approached holistically, encompassing not only the psychological but also the physical, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of their well-being.
Broken on Purpose is a belief and principle for people to be guided by throughout life. Broken on Purpose is about embracing the broken parts of our lives and understanding that God has a purpose for us regardless of what has happened. As we embrace our brokenness, we leave no room for guilt and shame to write our story.
Victoria Marshall is the founder of Broken on Purpose. Her Christ-centered approach and holistic perspectives to healing align with her passion for helping others live a life beyond brokenness. She has a gift for helping others navigate the complexities of healing and self-discovery. She aims to help individuals break free from religious principles that have bound them in shame and guilt so that they can break free from cycles of pain, disappointment, and rejection.
Victoria earned a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Social Work in 2012 from Oral Roberts University. In 2017, she graduated from Regent University with a Master of Arts with an interdisciplinary concentration in mentoring, coaching, and organizational leadership. In 2023 she attended the School of Prophets under Dr. Faith Wokoma at Legacy Center Church where she received training and activation to cultivate her gifts.
With over ten years of experience in the non-profit sector, Victoria has always enjoyed working with people whom society might perceive as "broken" or "disadvantaged" in some way. She believes that ALL things work together for our good, a truth exemplified by her own life journey. Victoria currently works with U.S. Department of Justice with the Office on Violence Against Women - a position that societal expectations might have deemed beyond her reach because of her story.
Victoria believes the connection of practical knowledge combined with the Holy Spirit can intensify our understanding of trauma, bondage, and pain. She is trauma-informed certified and is on a journey of continual growth.
Victoria demonstrates a unique grace in holding space for contemporary "healers" as she delves into the diverse avenues individuals outside the church explore for freedom, and inner-healing. Her journey into these healing modalities has provided profound insights into how alternative, modern-day healing practices often bypass Christ, relying solely on methods that mirror His transformative power yet omit acknowledgment of His role in the healing process.
She strives to demonstrate to the world the power of unity with Christ and its capacity to bring healing to the mind, body, and soul, liberating individuals from pain, trauma, and shame.
In her recent book she helps people understand how our lives—from birth to adulthood—are filled with experiences that shape who we are and how these experiences can impact our ability to live life to the fullest. She is dedicated to seeing people turn their pain into purpose. Through her words and teachings, Victoria invites individuals to find strength in vulnerability and experience the transformative power of God's love.
Victoria is a member of Lighthouse Full Life Center in Grand Rapids, MI. She is inspired daily by her energetic daughter Selah and enjoys painting, writing poetry, and gardening.
Her newest book, Broken on Purpose: Relationship Edition released in June 2023.
