[Throwback Thursday photo in the sanctuary our 1st Spring in DFW. I’m kind of missing that dark hair!]
No, I’m doing the typical “new year, new you” crap that everyone else is doing, BUT– I am gearing up to give you the latest + greatest potions, lotions and wellness products I’m loving right now. Trust me, I love getting rid of the old this time of year- old habits, old clothes, old makeup- and clearing the clutter to make room for the new. I just prefer thinking it terms of a BETTER you!
I need your help. Next week we are planning and taping new videos! I’m so excited.
- What questions do you have?
- What do you want to see in terms of beauty and wellness?
- What issues are you having?
Talk to mama.
Also, if you are in the DFW area, please mark your calendars on March 25th for an amazing event I will be emceeing called Stix & Brix benefitting Treasured Vessels.
Did you know TEXAS ranks #2 in the US for human trafficking cases with the DFW are having over 400 girls who are trafficked and forced to work on the streets each night? YET– there are less than 30 beds available for girls rescued from trafficking in the ENTIRE state of Texas. Treasured Vessels Foundation is building a shelter to give these girls a safe haven! JOIN US March 25th to help raise funds to build it! Get your early bird tickets by Jan 31st! After mentoring an underage girl in Canada for 3+ years who had been a victim and CPS shuffled her from one bad shelter to another- I am committing to raising awareness & helping give shelter and love to these girls in our very own backyard!

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS MODERN-DAY SLAVERY
Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. As the world’s fastest growing criminal industry, it affects every nation across the globe. Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of modern-day slavery.
There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history, with an estimated 27 million in bondage across the globe. Men, women, and children are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will.

One of my favorite female ministers, Christine Caine, and her husband started A21 in 2008. I’ve been following and supporting their efforts from the beginning so I was thrilled when my new Dallas friend Tori Gonzales asked SOS to join her company All The Wire and their collab with GoodhYOUman. It’s the 2nd year they have created a special capsule collection to raise funds and awareness for A21.
WANT TO JOIN US?
Purchase a cuff or tee and $6 from every ‘LIVE FREE’ unit goes to benefit A21’s efforts.
