We are glad you found us.
Welcome to Anguished Hearts.
We are Bryan and Shayla, and we are humbled that you found your way to our ministry. The purpose of Anguished Hearts is to share a story of restoration with those who have experienced pain and sorrow along the journey of life.
After 6 years of marriage, we became nothing more than two strangers living under the same roof. It was during this time period that Bryan chose to step out of the marriage commitment and began an affair with another woman. Divorce was on the horizon and unless a miracle took place, there would be no more Bryan and Shayla.
God has put a desire within our hearts to help others who have experienced hurt in their own story. Our passion is to help anyone who has experienced deep pain in their life, not just married couples. We want to use our life experiences to provide light to someone who is living and suffocating in darkness.
If you would like to learn more about booking us for your event, retreat, conference, or church service, please head over to our Speaking page.
Currently, we are in the process of writing our first book. This book will tell the back story of Bryan’s childhood that consisted of a broken home life, abandonment, and abuse which led to a 10 year alcohol addiction. His story includes depression, and ultimately decisions that affected our marriage. We hope to have the book published in early 2018.
Anguished Hearts was founded in 2015 after a season of spiritual confusion. God used that confusion to speak very clearly to the both of us that our story is not about us. It is about Him. It is about the great I AM. It is a love story about the greatest gift anyone could ever receive…the gift of forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus. We feel that it is our responsibility to live a transparent life and share with others to provide hope for their own story.
Our continued prayer is that our story of supernatural healing will give others hope and lead them into a grace-filled, forgiving, intimate, and life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. Maybe you came here because you are in deep pain. Maybe you are experiencing sorrow. Maybe your heart is in anguish and you have nothing left. If so, there is hope.
Hope has a name.
His name is Jesus.
We look forward to hearing your story.
