Three ways to fulfill your purpose…

  Do you know a missionary? We have friends who served in Ghana, West Africa for eleven years. We had the opportunity to take short term mission teams to work with them during their time there. It was amazing to see how God used them to reach the people of Ghana. During the eleven years they served in Ghana, they lived life along side the locals, attending the same churches, schools and shopping in the same marketplace. They lived life, but they did so intentionally. Acts 1:8 speaks about being God's witness.  It says, But you will receive power when [...]

What are you doing about it?

How old do you think you need to be to join the fight against human sex trafficking? Should there be specific age to get involved? Sex trafficking is often called modern day slavery.  Girls in the trade are called prisoners or captives. Isaiah 61:1-2 says, The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day [...]

Atlanta LIVE Have you ever been interviewed on television?  Last night was a first for me.  I was on Atlanta Live, where I talked about my book, Rescuing Hope, and the issue of human sex trafficking in America. They sent over a lengthy form I had to fill out along with wardrobe and makeup suggestions.  Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck by the time I arrived. I met the host, Pastor Vincent, in the green room and we immediately hit it off, bantering back and forth.  The studio was pitch black except for the actual set, which was [...]

From Sacrifice to Blessing

Do you celebrate Lent? Lent is the season of preparation leading up to Easter.  It begins on Ash Wednesday, which is today, and ends on Easter. Traditionally, lent is a time of prayer, sacrifice, fasting, and good works. People tend to focus on what they sacrifice during lent. Many times, they begrudgingly do without the item(s) they've chosen to sacrifice.  The Lord tells us to be joyful always, even in our giving [1 Thessalonians 5:16-18]. Have you ever received something from someone and you knew they didn't really want to give it to you? It's awkward and uncomfortable.  There's no more excitement [...]

Many Hats!

Have you ever looked back over your life and laughed at how the dots have connected through the years?  Do you see how the many hats you’ve worn have led you to where you are today? I found myself doing this yesterday. It’s really ironic how I ended up walking life with girls who are survivors of human sex trafficking, lobbying for better laws to protect them, and speaking as a voice for hope on any platform God gives me.  I remember when I started doing research for Rescuing Hope I thought I’d research, write a book and move on; [...]
