Steroid use in South Asian Brothels
Yesterday I decided between wearing blue or green. Why is it that some women deliberate over what color to wear while others over whether to take a livestock-fattening tablet or be beaten and starved?

Think twice about what you think about.  Thanks Laura Joost for sending me this article.

An Announcement

2012 has been a busy year so far, hence the posting gap. Let me tell you why. 

You may have noticed from my posts that I feel strongly about the injustice of child sex trafficking (read these quick stats to learn more). To end this heinous crime, pimps must stop selling children for sex, men must stop buying children for sex, men must fight addiction to pornography so that they are less inclined to become abusers, parents must love their children to make them less inclined to run away, and the hearts of already broken girls must be repaired. 
To learn more, watch documentaries:
Sex + Money
Nefarious: Merchant of Souls
Very Young Girls

To find ways to help, check any of these sites and/or request their newsletters:


I am called to repair women's hearts, so I have signed on to be the Assistant Director for New Jersey's first restoration home, Love True. I cannot wait to tell you about Love True's developments, so check here for updates and keep us in your prayers! 

Thank you.

My adorable little boy is growing up!  He's rolling from belly to back and bouncing in a jumperoo and eating mushy stuff and is very talkative.  I try to post videos from my computer and it doesn't work.  Does any one know the trick?
