I'm Brandi Lea and I'm the Founder and Executive Director of Beauty for Ashes Worldwide, Inc and our two projects: Beauty for Ashes Uganda and SoulCare Retreats. As a nonprofit leader, I know what it's like to not only work crazy hours (think phone calls from Africa at 2 am), but to carry heavy burdens. 

SoulCare Retreats was started to give leaders doing hard and holy work a safe space to rest and be reminded of their belovedness. A secondary beauty to come of these retreats is a sisterhood of leaders who choose to celebrate one another and walk alongside one another in a world that screams that we should live in competition. 

It is my absolute honor to pour my life out for our mamas and children in Uganda as well as for my sisters doing hard and holy work around the world. We are truly better together.
