From Congress to the Brothel

From Congress to the BrothelLinda Smith, former Congresswoman and founder and president of Shared Hope International, has written a heart-stirring book called From Congress to the Brothel.  It is a gripping story of how God worked in her heart to reach out and touch the lives of victims of sex slavery.

I was immediately pulled into the book by Linda’s honesty and realness as well as the stories of the girls she met in brothels.  Linda went from struggling to even touch a young girl in a brothel to starting a ministry, devoting her life to help women and children trapped in sexual slavery.  What an amazing story of God’s work done through a woman who was willing to be used by Him.

From the back of the book:

In these pages, you’ll meet several of the victims. You’ll encounter their astonishing, heart-rending accounts…but you’ll also witness their thrilling transformations. This is a shocking story – at times, you may want to turn away – yet it is a story of real hope, the kind of hope that changes the world.

It may even change you.

I encourage you to get the book and support the ministry of Shared Hope International.
