The Great American Eclipse and its power to unite.

  On Monday, August 21st people across the United States of America donned their eclipse glasses to watch something that hadn’t happened to this scope since 1918. Highways clogged with totality chasers, social media filled with pictures of it, and for the first time in a while, news stations reported on something that didn’t cause […]

How should the church respond to racism?

This past weekend in Charlottesville alt-right and white nationalists groups gathered together to protest the removal of a Confederate statue, in response counter-protesters gathered. There were chants by the alt-right like “Jews will not replace us,” and “blood and soil” and counter-chants of  “No Nazis, no KKK, no fascist USA.” Allegations of mace being sprayed from […]

It’s more than a title… it’s a movement.

So, as many you know, I am writing a book. What many of you don’t know is the title, and I want to take some time to explain the title and the vision to you all. At the end of spending a year and a half hearing the stories of women around the world, I […]

I just quit my dream job. Here’s why.

Yesterday was my last official day at a job that I had desired for years, a job that took passions of mine: writing and missions, and fused them together. But to explain how I arrived here, having just quit my dream job, I have to give a little back story. Buckle up because it’s a […]

If This Nation is Ever to Unite, We Must Acknowledge One Another’s Pain.

I have an older sister, she’s great and we are really good friends, but it wasn’t always that way. We’re less than a year than a part, so growing up we fought A LOT, and we weren’t above physical altercations. One time, when we were both teenagers, we were driving to our dad’s house on […]

Roxy Was Trafficked Before Our Eyes. Let’s Do Something About it.

I sat down and cringed. I knew he had spotted us, and in a bar like this, the very last thing you wanted was to be seen by the men who frequent them. His hair was long and greased back, and his small beady eyes that looked at us with disdain; making me want to crawl […]

If I Don’t Believe: Choosing Hope in the Sex Trade

The sex trade is an extremely dark place, yet hope remains. My friend chose to go back to the dark city that once held her captive. Check out this video explaining why it’s so important to believe for the best, even in the face of despair.

A Typhoon Destroyed Her Family’s Farm, Now She Has Few Other Options

I felt like I had been punched in the stomach. Cigarette smoke clogged the air, and the dim lights barely concealed the filth of the bar. Some pop song pounded in the background, making it hard to have a clear thought. I’ve been to the bars on walking street before, several times in fact. You […]

I Sat Next to A Man Who Purchases Sex. This is What I Learned.

“Do you know where to go next?” I was staring at an arrival board in Tokyo when she approached me. Fresh off a twelve hour flight with greasy hair and fuzzy teeth I stared at the transfer board. It looked like  the next flight to Manila was departing from terminal two. And I knew before […]

When Hope is Dead.

Have you ever desired something in life? I am not talking about cookie dough cravings — I am talking about that deep guttural longing and hope, that thing you pray about before you go to bed and when you wake up. I’m talking about that thing you know God has promised you, that thing you […]
