I have encountered an angel in Angela.
Angela Shelton may be the first woman in history to turn a horrific childhood into a movement so full of hope and inspiration, even people who haven’t suffered any form of child abuse want to get involved. Angela defied the odds and turned her pain into real power. If you want to understand how the human spirit can thrive in the face of unimaginable childhood trauma, listen to Angela!
I am overwhelmed and ever so grateful for that little girl who grew up to be Angela Shelton, the courageous young woman who persevered and found her own way through the tapestry of life who has woven a beautiful cloak of self worth and value that she shares with all who have been abused.
Angela Shelton gives each of us encouragement to leave behind everything that keeps us less-than. Finding Angela Shelton should be required reading in all high schools and colleges. It should be required reading for all social workers and law enforcement officers. I am so very proud of Angela Shelton and to share in the healing she brings to us all.
Angela Shelton inspires people of all ages to shatter the silence and create a world without violence!
After years of going through trauma from years of sexual abuse, I found my salvation after watching Angela on 48 Hours many years ago. Since then, I have been on a journey to set myself free and be the person I was meant to be. After years of cleansing myself mentally, I have now tackled the physical aspect. I am proud to say I have lost 100 lbs. of weight that was holding me back from being who I was meant to be.
All of what Angela was saying finally clicked. I will be running my first ever half Marathon this year and it is thanks to Angela Shelton and all of her workbooks and videos and messages that have helped heal me and make me the strong person I am today. I am proud of myself and that is the first time I have ever been able to say that about myself. Thank you Angela.
My life is surrounded by amazing women but if I had to put one on the top of my list it would be Angela Shelton. She is a successful model, actress, screenwriter, and author. She has managed to make me laugh, and cry and think and do (sometimes in an hours' time). Anyone who has the fortune of being part of Angela's life in anyway is truly blessed.
You want light? Angela Shelton’s got megawatts to spare.
Never have I seen a lightbringer and love-weaver so masterfully interweave humor, sex-positive education, self-love, spiritual healing, family nurturance, practical living skills, diversity-affirming media and entertainment so naturally and prolifically.
Angela Shelton is a Sherpa leading the way from unspeakable challenges to fully articulated self-acceptance and jubilee, all the while magically and magnificently embracing her self-acceptance and joy daily.
She's moved on from nightmares into living the life of her dreams with the--literal and figurative--love of her life. She's a living breathing reminder that "healing is possible".
Through Angela's fun and un-inhibiting Safe-Side Super Chick character, our children were able to identify with the character, laugh and learn great life-lessons that will stay with them through their lives.
They always refer to specific situations by saying "Safe-Side Super Chick said this... or Safe-Side Super Chick said that..." Through Angela is great and effective acting, she took a scary subject and translated it to children in a way that will help to keep them safe and I cannot thank her enough!
I had four babies in five years. Just as I was coming out of a lactating coma, I met Angela Shelton. We become fast friends and my life was never the same. Not only did I gain a friend, I gained my own personal cheerleader.
It was Angela's voice telling me to "just do it" when I decided to start a blog. She has been there to support me and she had the patience of a saint when I didn't know my RSS from my HTML. OMG! LOL!
From standing on stage at Listen To Your Mother, to book signings for I Just Want To Pee Alone to boarding a plane for Haiti, it was Angela that made me feel 6 ft tall and bullet proof.
My four children are watching everything I do. They are taking notes as I "just do it." Thank you.
Angela Shelton rips the mask off all the bullshit built up around the atrocities in our society. She exposes all, including her heart - broken and mended - and this inspires those with enough balls to follow suit. She does the heavy work with a wink and a smile and a goofy dance, which makes it all approachable. Thank God for this Angela Shelton. So glad we found her.
Angela Shelton is one of the brightest lights I have ever known. She has the guts to bring her unstoppable spirit and brazen curiosity into those dark icky places most of us either avoid or just crawl through with our eyes closed.
Thanks to her books and film and blog I have felt not only less alone in this world but also happier to be here, able to laugh at and marvel at the way life messes with you sometimes. I always look forward to what Angela is up to next! Bravissimo Bella!
"When I first started looking for a way to heal I spent a lot of time researching different writers and organizations. So many were just so dark and sad! Each day I would go to the computer and search, only to come away feeling more and more depressed. Then I stumbled onto Angela's website and there she was dancing across the screen. She was smiling, happy, joyful--none of the things I ever thought I would be again. And that made me stop and listen--if she could do it, could I?
So I did. I downloaded the workbook and dove in. I am so grateful I did. It was what I needed in order to heal. I needed an example of happiness to believe that I could be happy again."
