Yesterday was Shine a Light on Slavery Day. If you logged on to any social media your feeds were likely scattered with hands displaying a red X â€” a symbol of solidarity that as a generation, we will work and pray for the end of slavery. Awesome. Now let’s take the next step.
Three Tools For You Today:
- Sign this Petition. The End Modern Slavery Initiative Act could change everything.
Right now, the United States has the chance to launch a massive global initiative to end slavery. To get started, our elected officials need to know you care about people trapped in slavery and you want the U.S. to take action. More info in link above.

I am the co-founder of The Martyrs’ Cross ministry, alongside my husband Jay, the designer of this symbol, a prayer tool, that we WEAR around our necks to remember persecuted followers of Jesus, and their persecutorsâ€”around the worldâ€”in prayer and loving action. Some people call it jewelry, and thatâ€™s alright, but to usâ€”itâ€™s more. To us, itâ€™s a WAY. The Martyrs’ Cross is a message we wear around our hearts and minds. Worn in over 26 nations, the message is clear: we will not forget.
By God’s grace and with a commitment to believing in His faithfulness: we will fight for awareness for all of us in the midst of a culture of distraction. When life gets crushing, we will remember how Jesus suffered and as 1 Peter 4:13 (MSG) says â€œbe glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.â€
