Colleen Smith

Speaker, writer, life coach and advocate for the lost, broken and forgotten..

Leaving behind a life of trauma and shame I am firm in the belief that my life represents God’s work in building beauty from ashes. I believe that my past allows me to relate too and remind others that they are not alone in their journey. The Restoration Experience is a ministry that walks women out of their messy middle and into their own personal restoration.

Birthed out of a dream to see women set free from their pasts and walk wholly into their futures The Restoration House is dedicated to helping women rebuild their lives through mindful living, self care, self awareness, faith based community and education post addiction and trauma.

The Restoration House is committed to breaking cycles and restoring women by meeting them right where they are. We are committed to see that each woman experiences their own Restoration Experience leading them to the Freedom, Grace, Redemption and Victory that is waiting for them.

After hearing Ms Colleen’s story I first realized we serve an Awesome God, who takes our lives and our past and our hurts and our pains and molds them into a new story, a story that He writes in our hearts and shows us a road that He wants us to follow, and with Ms. Colleen, she travels that road every day.

She (Colleen) inspires me to always look and see where God is and then join him in that mission.

She (Colleen) inspires me to look into the eyes of hurting folks and just love them, love them with the love of God.

Ms. Colleen has a servant’s heart, a lion’s determination and a lamb’s gentle spirit.

She is truly a woman of God, who is blessed and highly favored.
