When I first picked up Zach Hunter’s book Be the Change, I had no clue how it would start me on a journey that hopefully will be life long. I had no clue that simply starting a LC2LC (Loose Change 2 Loosen Chains) campaign at my church could turn into one of the biggest parts of my life. I had no clue that it could turn into something that my father has entitled “Olivia’s little crusade” or has made my friends get used to hearing me ramble on and on about human trafficking that they either just smile in amusement or sort of shake their heads.
Zach Hunter is releasing his third book, Lose Your Cool, today which is on the topic of finding what you are passionate about, finding those things that change not only the world, but yourself as well. Most of you know what I am passionate about, those two things that grip me and I am utterly in love with, the gospel and fighting sexual trafficking. Some of you know how it’s my dream to work as a counselor for victims of trafficking and prostitution, working to help transform them with the power of the gospel. I am so very thankful that God has used Zach to introduce me to this passion and burden for ending modern day slavery and bringing justice to the oppressed.
Lose Your Cool can be found here as well as head over to invertbooks.com to get some cool free stuff. You can follow Zach on Twitter and tweeting about the book enters you to win some really sweet prizes. I can’t wait to get my hands on the book and see what Zach has to say, and… I hear that the story of Amy Carmichael is included in the book, so it must be good. ;)
Lately I’ve been really busy with school and my little bros and all that sort of stuff. My older brother is graduating high school this month and we have major work to do in order to host a few hundred people at his open house. It’s also that time of year where you are scrambling to finish your work in time for summer, there are concerts and graduations, and general business. Instead of feeling pressured to have to get a post up several times a week I’m going to work more on writing better posts. Many of my posts haven’t been very good lately and I haven’t been satisfied with the quality.
I do have some treats coming up for you though! I’ve been starting work on a series entitled “Hope for the Prostitute”. (I’m not saying any more about it.) You guys are in for a big treat with a guest blog series by my good friend Joshua on the topic on Biblical manhood. (He is also very busy right now with finishing up school for the year so there might be a little wait on this.) I’m also planning on getting some book reviews up here since I plan to do a lot of reading this summer. Last but not least, I’m adding a new page entitled “My Favorite Things” and will try to update that often with some good picks of books, music, quotes, and whatever else happens to come. So check back there often. (Note, as of now I have very little actually on it. Be patient please!)
One very last thing, you guys can still keep in contact with me, especially through Twitter. I caved to the fad last night and am testing it out right now. (If I find it too addicting or too pointless I’ll delete my account.) So all of you on Twitter be sure to check me out!
