Episode 10: Prostitution is Sex Trafficking
This is the most important episode for Engaging Life's Moments Presents. In this episode we come to a truth moment that: prostitution is sex trafficking. Last year I had the most incredible opportunity to interview activist, abolitionist, singer/song writer, teacher and sex trafficking survivor, Cynthia Borsellino. I first came in contact with Cynthia at a Q&A called Voices. I then learned that there was a documentary film called Honeychild about her story as a prostitute and a sex trafficking survivor. With the news that sex trafficking survivor Cyntoia Brown received clemency for a 51 year prison sentence, I knew this was the right moment to release this interview. You will get to hear Cynthia's story of healing, restoration and redemption as she talks about her life being redeemed through her faith in Jesus Christ.

Episode 1: At The Border Part 1
This is the very first podcast for Engaging Life's Moments. I had an opportunity to visit the border town of McAllen, Texas. The reason: hearing that child trafficking was happening as the issues of immigration at the border was coming to head. In April, the attorney general and president implemented a "zero tolerance" policy to an already established policy of detaining ones crossing the border. I wanted to get more information for myself to present. Here is At The Border, Part 1.
