What can I do? I’m just one person.

Interstate 20 in Georgia Have you signed up to be a part of Circle Atlanta for Hope yet? I have been so blessed to see the number of people sharing the website information and challenging their friends to be a part of it. This is an event that everyone can be a part of, young and old. It is a way families can teach their children about the power of prayer. This is a way for the elderly to engage in the fight. As I was praying for the event this morning, I asked God to help people understand [...]

How does it happen?

Have you ever seen a pimp? Probably not that you know of, but pimps come in all shapes and sizes. You could walk right by one and not know it. I've come across cases where pimps have been family members, men, women, couples, gangs, and even classmates. Pimps don't walk around wearing a t-shirt that says, I'm a pimp and I plan to sell your body ten to thirty times a night to be raped and I'll keep all the money." They also don't have horns growing out of their head. They look like your average person. They blend in with [...]

She was a lot like you, until…

What do you think a trafficking victim looks like? Is bruised and beaten? Is she restrained some way? Chained to a bed maybe? Possibly, but more than likely she looks like the average girl you'd pass in a shopping mall. With the use of technology, the vast majority of girls and women trafficked don't stand on street corners, also referred to as the track, dressed as ladies of the evening. The Crimes Against Children Research Center stated, Much social activity is migrating to the Internet, so it should not be surprising that this is true for crime in general and [...]

Bring Back Our Girls!!!!

Have you read anything about the girls being kidnapped in Nigeria? Unless you've been walking around with your head in the sand, you've at least heard about it. You don't have to be someone who watches the news or even reads a newspaper to learn about what's happening. It's being posted all over Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media. It's being talked about on virtually every radio station in some form or another. Nearly three weeks ago, close to 300 girls were kidnapped from their school.Then other stories followed stating, ...new details were emerging about the abduction of at [...]

How in the world does this happen?

Have you read the newspaper lately? There seem to be more and more articles about trafficking. People want to know more. I get questions about it all the time. I decided to share some of those questions and answers with you this morning. What kind of girl ends up getting trafficked?" Any and all kinds. This crime is not a respecter of persons. It impacts young, old, poor, wealthy, educated, uneducated, black, white, Asian, Hispanic, and if there was such thing as a purple polka dotted girl, you would see it impacting them also. Evil isn't picky. It's out to [...]

Where are you pointing?

Are you a healthy eater or a junk food junkie? If I'm honest, I used to eat my fair share of junk food.  I never gave much thought about what went into my body, other than based on taste. That was before I was diagnosed with skin cancer and learned what you put in your body impacts your health.  Certain foods create a breeding ground for cancer. Since I never wanted to hear the "c" word again in relation to me or anyone I knew and loved, I changed my eating habits and cut out a lot of the junk [...]
