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.

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... ;)

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.

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 really enjoyed the book I was amazed of the adults in your life ad the fact they were unaware of the abuse you were going thru and even more shocked that the ones that did know didnt believe you or blamed you! I was also saddened and shocked at the relationship between you and your mom I believe that if the realtionship between the two of you and her self esteem would have been better some of the abuse you went through would have been elimated or stopped she would have seen it but she was in such a bad place she couldnt have or wouldnt have but i am glad you found yourself and God and your doing wonderful God bles you in all you do. Also I am so sorry about the situation between your dad and brother I know that had to hurt you then and now. Some wounds heal but some scars last forever they just dont hurt as bad. You are a wonderful woman for sharing your story of tragedy and triumph and I believe the next story will be a Love story or at least one of inner peace because I believe that is something you faught hard to find and have found it and enjoy it everyday because it makes you the woman you are. Once you have found God, inner peace and self love you can be anything and anyone

I jsut read Perfectly Planned and I must say that this was a great read. This book was very profound and edgy. I was blown away by some of the things I read and my heart ache for little Kelly. There were times when I just wanted to find her (lil Kelly) and rescue her from all she went through. This book opened my eyes to see my life in a much better light. I thougt I knew how to forgive, but after reading this book, I didn't forgive the right way.
Kelly R. Porter was very outstanding in writing this book. I admire her courage for telling her story. It was breathtaking and also liberatimg for me to read. There are many Kelly Porters out there and it is up to us to feed them knowledge of who they are to better themselves. Thank you Ms. Porter for an amazing journey.
You are truly a SURVIVOR

I am so grateful that I was so tremendously blessed to find the author and read this book because it so changed my life. I have always thought about the things that I have been through and tried to put it all together in writing and this author's story tremendously touched my very essence. From the first few words on down to the end of the story, I sat on the edge of my seat, saying wow to wower, and I know wower is not a word. But this book took you from one essence of life to the other one, wanting to know what would happen next to her. I found it so odd that so many things I too have lived and I am thankful that you put your life and words to paper. Great job and I am grateful and humbled that you shared your story with me and everyone you have encountered.

I can only say that the content of this Book comes from survival of fears and nightmares that we all hope to never have to endure or wish upon anyone. It took a lot of courage to speak out on the things that most people try to suppress and pretend like it never happened/exist. This book helps you understand that it's Okay to overcome deeply rooted issues with abuse of all kinds. The Author Ms Kelly Porter came straight from the heart with this book and I am sure that anyone whom reads it will truly appreciate her for taking the time and allowing you to share in her life.

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.
