Secrets - How are they really hurting you?
Are you holding on to secrets? Do you realize the negative affect they are having in your life? Do you want to enjoy a life of freedom from guilt, shame, anger, self-loathing, unforgiveness, etc? Letting go of those secrets is very possible as well as the burden it carries. No matter where you are in your healing journey this powerful presentation will guide you to letting go of those secrets and walking in your truth and the abundant life God has for you. This isn’t about religion but it is about the spiritual path that can lead you into the wholeness and self-love that you truly deserve.
Human Trafficking - Is it really happening in the U.S.?
When most people think about human trafficking, their initial thought is either the movie “Taken” or it being a 3rd world country issue when that isn’t the case. With human trafficking being the 2nd highest crime in the U.S. it's time to truly understand what human trafficking is and who it effects. In essence, it effects EVERYONE. Whether you are a parent, teacher, church member, business owner, or just a concerned citizen that wants to learn more this is the workshop for you. You will be able to know exactly what human trafficking is, where it's happening, how it's happening, signs to look for and what you can do to help stop this horrific crime.
Human Trafficking - A Victim Centered Approach
Do you work with children in the foster care system? Are you in law enforcement? Are you a child advocate or work with adults victims of sex trafficking? If so then you really want to get more informed on the best way to help victims without being threatening or re-exploiting them.
In this workshop you will learn the “backstory” of how these victims became targets for traffickers as well as language to use and not to use. You will also learn methods that will help with gaining trust with the victims in order to gain more information about their traffickers. Victims are often told that “all the police will do is lock you up” or “Nobody will help you because they consider you trash.” In this workshop you will be given the tools such as changing the mindset of looking at “prostitutes” as victims instead of criminals. Small acts such as kind words that can be said, food, compassion, as well as sharing with you the trauma bond that occurs between the victim and their trafficker. As a survivor, I will be sharing from the “victims” mindset in order for you to better understand what is happening for the victim.
The Church & Human Trafficking
So many times we have heard the church say we need to reach out to the “Least of these” but they really don’t know how. It's difficult to help someone that has been through trauma when you haven’t experienced trauma and most times good intentions and compassion aren’t enough. In this workshop you will learn how to approach trauma survivors, words to say and not to say, triggers that can harm survivors, practical ways you can help, and most importantly ways not to re-exploite survivors. Jesus always loved people right where they were at and as the body of Christ we should do the same.
Kelley is a charismatic and powerful speaker. She speaks honestly and directly about both the vulnerabilities created in her childhood that traffickers later exploited, and her own experiences in "the life,". She is able to connect with diverse audiences including law enforcement officers and industry members, drawing them in and inspiring them to get more involved in the fight against human trafficking. She is a joy to work with as she becomes part of your team, pitching in wherever she is needed. She is also an amazing encouraging person...cheerleading for your organization and you personally as she works with you. I highly recommend her as a speaker for any anti-trafficking event or training. Alsobrook is an amazing human being. She is a survivor and a fighter. She does an incredible job at telling her story of survival, strength, and courage. She gives a voice to an issue that most do not understand. Victims of human trafficking are often hidden in plain sight. Kelley helps listeners to open their eyes to what is happening in their own neighborhoods. Her positive attitude shines a light to a dark topic. I enjoy her presentations and highly recommend watching her speak

Kelley, you're such a strong public eye motivator, and you never stop going. Friends and listeners can always count on you to speak out and stand up for women all over the world. You TOUCHED the lives of several ladies at GSCC women's conference last year in August of 2015.
Since then, myself and others have observed you on social media, radio and other public settings. Since you're always encouraging others. I would like to take this day to encourage you. Keep on speaking out on sex trafficking and other abuses. May God continue to bless you and strengthen your hands is my prayer
