Nadia Murad was born and raised in Kocho, a small village of farmers and shepherds in Northern Iraq. A member of the Yazidi community, she and her brothers and sisters lived a quiet life. Nadia had dreams of becoming a history teacher or opening her own beauty salon. On August 15, 2014, when Nadia was just 21 years old, this life ended. Islamic State militants massacred the people of her village, executing men who refused to convert to Islam and women too old to become sex slaves.

This is a book I would recommend to everyone. It tells a story that has been repeated in the lives of so many across the nations. It happens far too often. It is a tale of struggle, of violation, of terror, and of not just survival but of triumph. A must read!

An excellent book! So many amazing tips and ideas to not only save money/spend less, but on how to live life to the fullest and in the way God intended. The best part? She is so “real” - a woman with struggles I could identify with and who knows what the “average” family looks like. So many extra resources are available on her website also. Just awesome! (I really did go and buy a hard copy after listening to it! I’m planning to go through it again with a highlighter😉)

In 2014, Chessy Prout was a freshman at St. Paul's School, a prestigious boarding school in New Hampshire, when a senior boy sexually assaulted her as part of a ritualized game of conquest. Chessy bravely reported her assault to the police and testified against her attacker in court. Then, in the face of unexpected backlash from her once-trusted school community, she shed her anonymity to help other survivors find their voice.

This is such a powerful story of hurt, healing, and hope. I was at once heartbroken for this young woman and awed by her strength. The very fact she read her own story speaks to the incredible woman she has become. You will be touched by it and you will be changed!
