Hope ~ Renewal ~ Recovery
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
— Colossians 2:8 (NIV)
In a world where good and evil battle for dominance every day – how do you keep your life on the “good” side? We know that maintaining integrity in a world of questionable character is hard. But God has made a way. You can explore the spiritual realities behind the battle of good and evil – you’ll better understand how to avoid evil’s destruction and make the most of the good life God offers.
Utilizing Biblical Counseling, our mission is to restore hope and renew minds. Since 2003, In Your Light has restored hope to people struggling with depression, anxiety disorders, grief, etc. We have also offered rescue and/or Biblical counseling to those in the sex industry and others victimized by emotional, physical, and sexual abuse including domestic violence and human trafficking.
Modern Day Slavery Awareness & Prevention
Human trafficking, commonly referred to as modern day slavery is a global phenomenon that involves obtaining the labor or sexual services of another through the use of force, fraud, or coercion in violation of an individual’s human rights. Generating billions of dollars in profit each year, human trafficking is one of the world’s fastest growing criminal activities. Fueled by global economic conditions and the power and anonymity of the internet – along with global demand – the market for and trade of human beings continues to expand rapidly.
Tafficking can and does happen world wide, including the United States.
“When they hear the term “child trafficking,” most Americans think that it only happens somewhere else, in Southeast Asia or Central America. Even if they acknowledge that this crime happens in the United States, they assume the victims are foreign children brought into this country who are trafficked only in large cities. In fact, we have learned that most of the victims of domestic minor sex trafficking are American kids who initially leave home voluntarily and are being trafficked on Main Street USA. One police commander said to me, “the only way not to find this problem in any community is simply not to look for it.” The good news is that America has begun to look. The bad news is that we have barely scratched the surface.”

We are using a number of methods to make people aware of these issues.
In this day and age, it’s hard to understand how there can be so much prejudice and misunderstanding regarding the disAbled. The barriers of inaccessibility are equally frustrating.
