Thank you Flora Jessop January 20, 2014
I am overjoyed and filled with hope to see the face and hear the voice of one of my heroines and inspirations over the last 10 years again. Many of you are probably aware that TLC has a new show called “Escaping the Prophet” about the FLDS, where Flora Jessop and Brandon Jeffs are profiled doing what they do best. Helping FLDS captives escape to freedom. Flora has been a fierce warrior against the FLDS abuses (along with many others) for so many years. It brings tears to my eyes to be able to watch this. Thank you Flora for your example to me. Thank you for your strength, for your encouragement, for your words of truth. Thank you for working tirelessly for so many years to expose this, even when people didn’t believe you. I have wanted to be like you “when I grow up” since I met you! And I know that I will be. The world is getting ready to do something REAL to stop all kinds of abuses, and its because of people like you, Flora, who never quit and never give up. No matter what you keep speaking the truth and helping as many as you can. I don’t know if you will ever realize the impact you have had on me over the last ten years, and how you have helped me realize that I too can help free the captives. Flora, you are AMAZING!!! And I am soooo happy that you and Ruby are finally together again. Victory!!!
You are made of the sea and stars January 8, 2014
Rebirth, the life that comes
The changes, constant changes
Of my voice, my will, my strength
Struggling to break the barriers
This journey is one of dead ends,
winding roads, twists and turns.
But heartbreak in the search for love
is only a rock on my trail.
For only with the deepest agony
The greatest joy comes.
I find my purpose!
To love and be loved
Sit on the snow-capped mountain
and look down on my life
To realize how far I’ve come.
My footprints have left my trail
I remember where I’ve come from,
And my triumph is my rebirth.
The Pace Memo- Ritual Abuse Within the Mormon Church January 6, 2014
I will let this website link speak for itself, as I am quite emotional about this topic at the moment. All I have to say is, this is what happened to me. It is real. The mormon church has been covering it up for decades. I am sharing this information on my blog because I know that there are other women somewhere out there who are also trying to escape this torture and abuse, and I want them to know they are not alone… I also want people in our world to know that things like this really do happen.
To anyone who doesn’t believe this, that is fine. I am not trying to convince people who are not interested. My purpose is to educate people who ARE interested, and hopefully to reach out to other women who have also been abused as I have.
Here is the link to…

This is serious- Educate Yourselves!!! January 5, 2014
If you care about me or survivors of ritual abuse and torture, what are you willing to DO about it? Your thoughts, prayers, and good wishes are nice- for you. They make you feel better, but they most definitely don’t help us in any way. Your thoughts don’t change our lives, exemplify love and hope, give a hand up. We are not charity cases. We don’t want your pity. We want a call to arms to end all ritual abuse/mind control/torture/CHILD abuse of any form! Do you care, seriously? Or just for a few minutes. Am I just a charity case to you? Or do you want to be my friend, my sister. I don’t want your pity, I want you to walk alongside me on this journey to free the slaves.
This is a call to arms. Educate yourselves, then others. Care and DO something about it. You have to figure out if you actually care or not. But I will not accept anyone on my team who is half-assed about caring and actually doing something real about these issues. We need warriors. We need empowerment, not charity and pity.
If you want to educate yourself about ritual abuse, start on the website below. And then hopefully you will care enough to take some real action against torture and injustice against children.
If you are reading my blog, it is because you are looking for some kind of information, you have a question, you need understanding. Please, go further. Please DO something. We all need you.
My Big Brother sat with me on the bus today
I wept with the love He showed me
The beauty in the world around me
And the truth of who I am
How much I’m truly loved
My heart is indeed on fire now
And there is nothing I want more
Than to feel that kind of love
In everything I do
Everything I speak
Every choice I make
People may not understand
We are all human, all flawed
Abba, please forgive us all
And put fire in our hearts
Help us see through the “man”
In all of us on earth
Judgements, hypocrisies, lies and unbelief
You love us with the same fire
No matter how broken we are
Speak life to my dry bones and ashes
The wreckage of the past
Which my Brother took away
I know the truth now
And I weep with joy…
Man will always fail me
And I’ll always fail myself
Without You I would be dead today
But Your fire, Your fire
All I need is You, God
Its just You and me
Only You know everything about me
And breathe life back into me again and again
Only You, Only You, Only You
You’re all I’ve ever needed
