I loved getting to speak and share my story, journey and vision to stop child #sextrafficking at the #onevoice4freedom fundraiser in my own city of #columbus #ohio last week. Such a fun event. Incredible music from my favorites @laceytown and @shawn_mcdonald_music. An artshow featuring amazing pieces from my friend @christencushing and just a great, chill night with friends who care about fighting injustice and changing the world.
#Death was always at my door; #pain would ask me to reach for the handle; but #God stood in that space between us. And #purpose called me to more.

Still in need of funding for chairs for some of the new classrooms as well as teachers desks, white boards and student tables. If you can help fill our new school in Cambodia, please give online via www.onevoice4freedom.org and make a note of what you want your gift to specifically fund: $7 per chair, $30 per white board (need 4), $70 per teacher desk (need 6), $40 per student table (need 24). THANK YOU TO ANY WHO CAN CONTRIBUTE! All donations are tax deductible. Education is key to prevention of child slavery and these children are in a highly vulnerable area.
Catch me, my mom and a number of other great speakers tomorrow at Licking Memorial Hospital (Ohio) for a free, one-day child abuse education and certification training. A conference such as this is imperative for preventing, recognizing, and responding to #children and families impacted by sexual, physical, and/or emotional #abuse or #neglect. Let’s work together toward a better future! (CEU Credits available) To register by phone contact Miriam Mohamed, CAC Coordinator, at (740) 348-7991.

Today marks the 20th #anniversary of the day I broke the #silence on nearly a decade of #sexualabuse in my childhood. Mixed emotions today as I am in the midst of a lifelong #journey of #healing, but I’m grateful for a #God who continues to walk me through it and give me #purpose.
