About the Author

A victorious leader and expert on overcoming all forms of abuse and the art of forgiveness, Advocate, Empowerment Speaker and Published Writer, Kelley Porter is the prototype of what happiness is after abuse. Her purpose is to empower and inspire all victims and survivors to develop a forgiving heart, stand in their truth and live in their passion. Her intense, transparent and authentic style of speaking will empower anyone to self-reflect and correct behaviors that may hinder them from living a healthy and non-toxic lifestyle. Kelley was inspired to write Perfectly Planned after completing a Motivational Speech in 2008. After witnessing the effect of her shared story and through a friend, Perfectly Planned was born; a book about overcoming Incest, Rape & Sexual Abuse is not only inspirational and empowering, it is an amazing memoir that will provide hope for the abused knowledge for the unaware and strength for the survivors. In 2013 Kelley initiated the process of a NFP organization titled Voice of Champions. Their mission was to empower abused victims and survivors to stand up and speak out via the use of a concrete platform. Kelley succeeded in empowering numerous individuals to share stories that had never been shared with anyone. In 2014 Kelley Porter will launch with a new mission and vision that will focus on assisting and empowering clients to break free from the generational curse of abuse, stop living as a victim, walk in forgiveness and live in their passion. Kelley will also release the sequel to Perfectly Planned, “Abuse Kills-God Heals,” a book about domestic violence, codependency, bisexuality, more lies, betrayal and deceit. Kelley has been featured on WVON, Channel 19 Do's and Don'ts of Parenting, she has written for Rolling Out Magazine, Bean Soup Times and has spoken at many seminars and workshops that empower the audience to live above the pain, stand in their authenticity and live in their passion. Kelley resides in Blue Island with her fabulous husband and fantastic son. She is available for speaking engagements such as seminars, workshops, conferences and radio shows. Her audience can range from congregations, universities, shelters, youth groups, NFP and community organizations, the educational and prison system.

Bold, in your face truth from the author. No matter what you suffered or didn't suffer as a child this book gives you an insight into how tough life can be and how all that mess can turn into a message. Loved it.

I was introduced to this book by a colleague of mine that attending college with Kelly, not know that I did as well.. I read this book in one day. It is definitely a page turner. This book was so inspirational to me.. I had to share it with my family/friends. My mother was so touched, she went out and purchased it for herself. I would highly recommend purchasing and reading this book. Kelly Porter is an awesome, inspirational, determined woman that gives hope to those who were abused and those that were not. I can't wait until the next book! Hurry up Kelly... ;)

Format: Paperback
This is a memoir in its rawest form. Reminiscent of the autobiographical account, "Love Sick," "Perfectly Planned" is fraught with the sort of honesty that will make some readers cringe. The spelling and grammatical editing is also rather raw, but instead of taking away from the story, it adds to it and gives it even more of a sense of authenticity. I had to put the book down several times and walk away, but I always returned. This book will be a difficult read for everyone, no matter who you are or what your personal experience is. However, it's an important book that helps break down the "hush-hush" stigma surrounding all forms of abuse.

This was an extremely difficult book to read. Kelly's story is deeply compelling and full of tragedy, sadness, strength, and triumph. The grammatical (dialog) issues while distracting, actually gave this book authenticity. I went through every emotion imaginable- horror, anger, fear, disgust, sadness, and finally - a sense of relief. The relief came from knowing that in spite of the depth of Kelly's suffering and victimization, she came out VICTORIOUS. This book should be read by EVERYONE - abused or not. It is that important.

Great read. It's a blessing that see can talk about her life. Not everyone can speak about tragedy. She is a strong woman

Great read! I honestly have to say that this was a hard read for me as I, too, was a victim of molestation. Kelly Porter, I love how you are using your story to help others. Keep up the great work and continue to be the motivation that you are :) You've come a long way, baby!

I can't wait for the follow up book. Definitely a page turner, conversation starter and a place for healing to begin. Mrs. Porter-Turner's book makes me proud to be in the skin I'm in and I say thank you for sharing our stories.

This was my first e-book purchase through Amazon and I am very pleased with the ease of download and delivery. This book is very powerful and teaches us that no matter what you go through in life Never give up! I admire Kelly for sharing her story and helping others overcome the hurt and pain that comes with issues like this. If you want to feel inspired and grateful for your life even with trials and tribulations you must get this book! You will not be disappointed.
