What would you say?

What would you ask a survivor of  trafficking if you had the chance to talk with her? Last night I was talking with one of my precious girls and she asked me if I had started scheduling speaking engagements for 2015. As I stated listing off the events I have books and the dates they're scheduled she said, One of these days I'm gonna go with you and tell my story." I had to smile. She's come a long way in the past four and a half years. She smiles more and laughs often. She dreams of a future that [...]

Do you want to be a Superhero?

Did you grow up watching the super heroes on television?  I have two brothers, so I saw nearly every episode of Batman, Superman, The Incredible Hulk, and more.  We also watched Wonder Woman. Even as young children, we all like to believe there are people in the world who will go the extra mile to help others. We all need a hero.
