Please pray for Laura as she spreads the message of hope for families and victims of human trafficking. Laura is available to speak at any venue across the nation and the world. Below are the current training options available now:

 

1. What is human trafficking? Defining who they are and what they look for. Statistics available. 2. Internet safety. How to remain safe and keep your children safe online as well. 3. Pornography and Sex Trafficking. Why these two go hand in hand in destroying America. 4. Laws, government and ways to get involved in being a voice for tougher laws against criminals caught. 5.

ALPHA,

Today I can and will begin again. It is high time to recommit some areas of my life to You and to the purpose You have called me to fulfill. You are the beginning. I want to begin again. Sometimes taking that first unknown step is the hardest leap of faith, but I have to start somewhere. Why not now? Why not with You? I refuse to allow myself to stick with what is unhealthy for me and familiar to me, out of fear of facing something new because it is uncomfortable or out of my comfort zone. When I face my fears, it builds my self-esteem. I can do anything with You in my life. I choose to make the first step with motivation and determination. The first step to changing for the better has to include You. Love, Your Child
