Tim Ballard and his team are hard core, bona fide heros: they rescue children from slave labor and sex slavery. They call themselves abolitionists and their organization is called Operation Underground Railroad. I am in awe of what they have done.
I love the first video below. It details how Tim got started in this great endeavor. I love it's message that when we act in faith, we get answers and doors open--but only after we act. I love the big heart that this man has, and that his background uniquely prepared him to do such amazing things. I love that when we listen to God, we are able to reach our potential and have an impact that we never dreamed of. I also love his discussion of fear and how it keeps us from accomplishing great things. The second video is great too, but it is more of an offical explanation of what they do.
His team has accomplished amazing things. But the first step was Tim being brave enough to listen to that voice inside him. I think that is how heros start.

Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
