(Washington, D.C.) — Human trafficking survivor, Andi Buerger, the founder of Beulah’s Place, and an international speaker is sitting down with leaders in Washington, D.C. in February during the annual Conservative Political Action Conference to discuss the non-partisan human issue of human trafficking. Buerger stated.. “In the wake of President Trump’s bill signing for anti-human trafficking legislation, with or without a wall, the issue is protection and safeguarding of human rights across the board for every child and adult.”
Buerger continued…”Criminals have the upper hand because they can abduct children freely, create false documents, and intimidate victims into non-disclosure. When we allow our children to be sold, to be used as a commodity, to be violated, persecuted, neglected, discarded, and preyed upon by criminal influences, we deteriorate as a civilized community because there is nothing civilized about using the weak, the innocent, the vulnerable for selfish gain.”
She was violated at the age of six months to seventeen years old, by all immediate family members and assorted others during that period. Today, the term is trafficking, but back then there was no place to run for help or safety. Her desire for justice led to law school, but she realized justice is less about law and more about action. In 2008, she co-founded Beulah’s Place to help at-risk homeless teens who have been victimized and discarded to die on the streets. Her primary focus and education tool is to engage these street teens and the daily work with law enforcement and the District Attorney’s offices to better assess and serve vulnerable youth.
Buerger concluded…”Sadly, the general public is only getting one piece of the wall puzzle. It is not about bricks and mortar. It is about an entire system of protection and safeguarding of human rights – not political agenda. The collaborative impact of cameras, sensors, border patrol, any material wall, and all the other pieces that safeguard the lives of those on both sides is huge. While there is an outcry over bricks and mortar management of an incestuous process, where is the outcry for those children abducted from their beds, their schools, their families? Where is the outcry that criminals using America’s political quarrel over a wall are having a field day at the expense of their victims?”
Andi Buerger is speaking nationwide to universities, women’s clubs, government agencies, and members of Congress. Her message will also be featured nationwide for winter 2019 and spring 2019. To schedule booking events with Andi Buerger, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“As of Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, Cedar Point, North Carolina, where I reside, is now on the map thanks to Hurricane Florence. I am planning this Women of Influence tour with the knowledge that my home will have some repairs to it while living out of a suitcase and knowing I have to hold onto my faith through this storm. So many lives are being affected by flood and wind damage since Hurricane Florence began yesterday. It’s with this, that I firmly believe our faith and our family are the power sources of strength that get us through these uncertain times. The power of resilience”…. stated Eden Gordon

Women of Influence from California, Sonja Bentley Zant – Nonnegotiable Living
Hello! It’s me, Sonja Bentley Zant, author of Hurricane Season.
Back when I first wrote this story, I lived in a hurricane prone area of Florida, and so I have a personal understanding of the realities of the kind of storm that blows in, blows up, and blows out of your life and leaves everything swirly and messy. And after living in Northern California for the past four years, I also know how it feels to have a fire come within a hundred feet of your home, threatening to strip you of the basics you sometimes take for granted.
Natural disasters are inevitable in life, and there are so many things that happen to us that are beyond our control. I know that now. And so whenever I have the opportunity to share the concepts I write about in my books, there’s one empowering life strategy I always hope people will take away and make their own: It’s called nonnegotiable living.
Life is better lived when you have your nonnegotiables figured out.
When you decide for yourself what your “must haves” or “your deal breakers” are in your life and in your relationships, the list almost always consists of things no one can take away from you unless you let them. Clearly knowing what you want makes it much less likely that you will settle for what you get, and I’m a firm believer that we live in a culture that lulls us into settling.
As I head back out into the world with all of my stories and ideas, I’m stepping out with a desire to inspire my readers and the people I meet with a new kind of hope — one that starts with a pen and a piece of paper, and the courage to name your own nonnegotiables.
Women of Influence from California, Linda Breitman – Miraculous Identity Book Launch
“If I could crawl inside your mind for 24 hours would I have a good day?” 80% of Christians wrestle with negative mindsets. The war between your ears affects everything you do—from personal relationships to success, in business.”
What is my miraculous identity? you ask. Your true, miraculous identity is to see yourself as God sees you. It is to experience all He says about who you are, why he created you, realizing your life purpose, and experiencing who God is for you. He designed you to be in relationship with Him and live your life in all of the miraculous wonders He promised you. This book meets you where you are right now in your hidden journey. Opening these pages is rather like floating down a river of living water—sometimes you drift slowly and other times you experience the exhilaration of rushing waters! Revelation of your personal, one-on-one relationship with God will become clearer. He knows you. And He knows how to engage with you.

“My vision for our children and their future is to educate and instill tools for a fearless spirit. As a young child, I was abused repeatedly by my father.

“The aftermath of sexual, emotional or physical abuse produces thoughts of fear, shame, and loss of identity. In particular, after a sexual assault, women wrestle with tormenting mindsets of shame. Through the work of my ministry, I not only see negative mindsets being transformed into ones of positive hope and a glorious future—but I also see the invisible wounds of the brokenhearted healed. Though it is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, it is really the awareness year!”
