In 2011, L.A.M.B.S. founder, Nicole P. Bell, reached a critical moment in her journey of healing from childhood molestation and sexual assault. She realized that she had overcome painful experiences and learned to live in grace, hope, and truth. In that moment, she received a vision to share her story, her insight, and her message of hope with other women.
L.A.M.B.S. is a movement because Nicole wants women to know that we are going somewhere. We are moving from living in the darkness of the effects of sexual assault and sexual abuse into the light of healing and overcoming. We don't have to feel guilty about what someone did to us and we don't have to be ashamed about how we responded to it. We don't have to let someone else define us.
The L.A.M.B.S. Logo
The L.A.M.B.S. logo conveys an image of the movement to reach out to women who have experienced sexual assault and sexual abuse. It symbolizes the ongoing journey of healing from the effects of sexual violence and abuse. The interconnected hands represent our shared experiences and the need to reach out to others and walk the path of healing together.
The colors of the logo signify knowledge, illumination, hope (yellow), the feminine, nurturing, compassion (pink), and communication, healing, and spiritual growth (teal). Teal is also the color representing sexual violence awareness and prevention. The tagline, "Change Women. Change the World." is our vision and reflects the mission to elevate, empower, and enlighten women who have experienced sexual assault and sexual abuse.
If you can elevate a woman's thoughts and cause her to see her life differently, you can change her Mind.
If you can empower a woman to love herself, accept herself, and embrace her power, you can change her Body.
If you can enlighten a woman with instruction and insight about who she is and what she is capable of, you can change her Spirit.
But if you can elevate her , empower her, and enlighten her, she not only changes herself, she changes the world.
