  1. I recently found your blog because of your podcast about Human Trafficking. I am survivor in West Virginia, although my trafficking actually happened in another state. My own experiences were different from the ones that you described, and yet the differences are merely situational and not contextual. I am grateful for you speaking in a public forum, and even more grateful that it is a forum of Christ followers.

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you found us. I am sure we will do more on the subject in the future. Would you be willing to share on here or on the podcast?

      1. I would be willing to talk with you about it, and blog about it. I am not really sure about the podcast, that is very new territory for me. I am not currently public about some of these things, and I still need a degree of anonymity in order to be honest about my story.

      2. I understand. That makes so much sense. I read some of your blog and I see you are still working through lots of this. I will pray.(Kathleen). If you want to put together an article for the blog, just let me know. Also, if you don’t mind, we’d like to use your comment (without a name) for our podcast. If you don’t want us to, no problem! Blessings!

      3. Thank you for the opportunity. I don’t mind you using my comment. I would like to write something for the blog. I am still working through a lot of this, and I may continue to be working on a lot for a while. I’m doing my best not to measure my time and instead measure the progress. I have been working on these particular issues for about 2 years. It takes time, but it is well worth every minute. Thank you, and blessings to you as well.

      4. Thanks! I will keep you in my prayers! Just let me know if and when you want to write and article. No pressure. -Kathleen
