Nya Abernathy

Writer, Speaker, & Consultant

Location icon United States

I'm an Atlanta native who believes that food, culture, and relationships are gifts from God to be fully enjoyed. I've been writing since I can remember, and utilized this passion in lyrics, narratives, and didactic exhortation. I'm rarely intimidated by the stage, though I am grateful for the healthy dose of nerves I have when it's time to take it.

My focus now is on writing and presenting for individuals, small group, and large gatherings around the reality of dignity - the intrinsic worth and value we all have simply because we exist. I believe that magnifying Imago Dei illuminates dignity, causing a ripple effect of authentic connection, heart bravery, and graciousness towards each other.

The Unravelling : The Hidden Treasure in Your Marriage

With anxiety and discomfort preceding my words, I took a breath and broke the silence of our car ride home from church. "I don't know why, but I know I feel hurt and lonely in our marriage." Usually I can do a pretty informed deep dive into my emotional state, but this time I was at a loss.

The Hang-Up of Healing - Nya Abernathy | The Dignity Effect - Medium

The thought of healing can initially be accompanied by visions of light rays coming through white clouds in a blue sky. Or maybe an individual standing in a field with their head slung back and their arms open wide. Or a smoothed skinned, bright eyed, wide-smiled face. That is the hope.
