Me Too with Witlee Ethan
In the last four years alone she has witnessed and experienced how corrupt our judicial system is, when she became a victim of police-perpetrated violence at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, who is a law enforcement officer. In the middle of the night she had to escape to another state for her safety and has been forced to live in hiding ever since. Including having to take various safety precautions because the government continues to protect him by operating under the “Blue Code of Silence“. Though the more her story is told and heard, the more power she takes back from him and the sooner she can safely come out of hiding.
October 23rd will mark 1,500 days of her living in hiding. Though despite her circumstances she has tried to make the best out of her unfathomable situation. She has since gone back to school to further her education. Majoring in Criminal Justice and minoring in Psychology, so she can better help other victims and survivors like herself. She recently graduated in May 2017.
Because of all that she has endured through out her life, it has helped her to realize that her true calling is to be an Inspirational Speaker so she can educate and spread awareness on these issues, while being an advocate for others who have faced similar traumas like herself. The injustices she has faced have given her the passion and perseverance to fight every day for other survivors voices to be heard, while never forgetting the victims whose voices have forever been silenced through murder. Her story and all that she has suffered at the hands of others is not in vain, God is making beauty from ashes.
Today she speaks on all the issues mentioned above and travels through out the country using her story to inspire others to “make a difference one day, one life at a time”. Her story is having an impact garnering followers and attention both nationally and internationally. She has been published by six organizations/media outlets within the last seven months. Her story is both versatile and applicable to any audience and platform.
Witlee Ethan is not just a survivor, but more importantly a warrior for others, standing up in the fight against violence and injustice. Her story is one of hope, forgiveness, healing, redemption, unwavering faith, and God’s grace. Which is the message she wants to share with others! She will be the first one to tell you, that it is through her faith alone that she has survived, and because of her relationship with Jesus Christ, she is thriving and she wants to help others to do the same!

When Blood Matters with Dana Sellars
For most of Dana Sellars’ life, feelings of rejection lingered in her heart, intensifying at some times and allowing her reprieve at others. But she could never shake the feeling of being unwanted or the fear of not belonging. As an adult, an off-the-cuff conversation with her parents revealed a shocking truth that would lead her down a path of discovery and healing. This captivating and encouraging book details what family truly means, how to look past old hurts and forward into new possibilities, and what happens when we choose to face difficult circumstances with a spirit of reconciliation, redemption, and reunion.
Join Amy as she chats with her friend Dana about her new book, When Blood Matters: How I Unearthed the Root of Rejection and Discovered what Family Really Means.

Wired for Freedom with Sarah Elson
We are WIRED FOR FREEDOM and Sarah's story reminds us so clearly how God has placed His spirit inside of us so we can walk in authority and victory! We love overcomer stories and Sarah is one of our favorites!
For 13 years Sarah battled self-injury. Labeled as a “good Christian girl,” she still felt worthless, ugly, crazy and alone. One night, she SHARED HER STORY with a young girl and her life was forever CHANGED. This girl shared the same struggle — she WASN'T ALONE! God began to heal and EMPOWER Sarah through her testimony, but it wasn’t enough for her to stop hurting myself. She needed an outlet.
Learning to crochet helped her develop patience with herself. Not long after, she discovered using wire as art and embarked on her JOURNEY with Wired for Freedom. Naturally, she used herself as a model for her jewelry creations and soon started receiving custom orders. She began to find VALUE in herself but often thought of quitting. As her gift developed, she went for it, and Wired for Freedom (wf) was created. As a designer, she has an outlet for self-expression through the creation of custom pieces, which also allows customers the same experience. Though once terrified to share her story, she now does so nearly every day. Today, she thanks GOD for setting her FREE and continues to use hdf hands to CREATE instead of destroy. She has learned that through her story and art, she can help others become WIRED FOR FREEDOM.
