“People who work with human trafficking victims, I call courageous – Jenny Williamson is one of those people. This book details her journey to helping young girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking. But it is more. This book is about you and me finding the courage to be and do all God created us to. Read it! You’ll be encouraged and challenged.”

-Jeremy Affeldt, Pitcher & World Series Champion, San Francisco Giants

My personal mission statement is to daily have the courage to be and do all I was created to – nothing more – but absolutely refusing to settle for anything less and then encourage everyone who crosses my path to do the same. You have crossed my path.

I believe that each and every one of us, was created on purpose for a unique and specific purpose. Individually, organizationally, singularly and collectively. You, your family, your business, your church, your team each has a mission to accomplish that will literally change the world – your world – one individual at a time.

I would love to help you shake off that cloak of mediocrity, that façade of comfort and mask of security and lead you out of the ordinary into the extraordinary where you will begin your water walking, giant slaying, history making destiny.

It is my passion for you to find your purpose.

Jenny Williamson





Before time began, you were imagined, planned, and created for a specific and unique purpose. There is something you were created to do and if you don’t do it, it will never be done. It is urgent you find the courage to be and do all you were created for.

Someone is waiting for you to be you.
