It's never too late to begin the healing process from childhood sexual abuse. It's never too early to fall in love with the person God created you to be. Long ago someone made a choice to take away your innocence, but today that someone can't touch your freedom to heal.

What Can One Momma Do?

“Why are you interested in writing and speaking about sex trafficking?” I ask.

Tears welling in her eyes. Her passion flowing from her heart. Palpable. Her voice quivers, “I was sexually abused by one person for two years. These kids [children who are sex trafficked] don’t even get a break to go down the street and buy a Popsicle. I cannot fathom how they survive the repeated violation of their bodies by hundreds of perpetrators over the years . . . sometimes their whole childhood.”

No rest. No play. No childhood.

It is a horrible subject, I know. We don’t want to think about, I get that. We certainly don’t want to talk about it, I understand. But what if we could actually do something about it? If we could change the life of one child or woman who has endured being trafficked, would it be worth our minor discomfort?

I am one momma with many children. What can I do? I am a sister. What can I do? I am friend to many who have been sexually abused. What can I do? Sound familiar?

I know. I get that. I understand.

Let’s take a journey together over the next several weeks. I’ll do the research. I’ll write the blog. And together we’ll find out what we can do.

Together. Hearts linked. Minds ready.

So we can think about it. So we can talk about it. So we can do something about it.


  1. Thank you for your work on this important issue. I'm ashamed to know Ohio is one of the worst states for this, but at least my eyes are open now and I'm watching out for it.

  2. Keep watching, my friend. I know we can make a difference.

  3. I agree!! Ever since I've watched the movie THE CANDY SHOP , I've been stirred to want to do something!!! Cannot believe it happens right here in our country! Thanks for leading this fight. I'm on board with you sister!!
