She is an international speaker and member of the RAINN speaker’s bureau. Lessons to take with you: Child is not a sin, it is a blessing. He is real! Rape to a woman is what castration is to a man. The evil can't really hurt God, so what he does is, he goes after his creation. There is healing in confession.

"He forced himself on me….." [09:30] - Maybe this was gonna be the end. But I knew I had to tell her! [12:41] - Is demonstrating redemption and Restoration good for a child? [16:15] - That one invitation from that young lady, when I was moving into the dorms, changed my life forever! [19:24] - Why me…..? [25:54] - "Maybe they were being raped and they haven't told anybody. They are struggling to live their life and don't know how to deal with it. What would you say to them?" [32:16] - People who have been healed requires them to be bold and be the first to help! [36:40] - "I feel like a part of me is missing." "I feel like I never had a childhood."
