Every year over 100,000 girls in the United States are forced to do someone’s sexual bidding. Most of them are between the ages of 9 and 19.
This is not some faraway, foreign problem. This is in our own neighborhoods, our own towns and cities.
Throughout these pages read the stories of these girls and the people who have come alongside them to hold the white umbrella of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration. See the need for these protecting, caring partners. Learn what it means to love and care for these survivors in action, prayer, and support.

I read this and bawled as it struck so many chords. This isn't a book about a program, but rather it is a book about the very God-led, individualized therapeutic process of healing which occurs when helpers look not at the many needs, but at the One who knows and acts through our willing lives.
All the same, as I resist the urge to want to replicate the ministry of Wellspring Living in my own city, I feel I have gleaned so much from this book about the very real hurdles these girls face and I have been inspired to recognize that with God, truly ALL things are possible.
Sex Trafficking is a 3 billion dollar business. Because it is an uncomfortable subject to think about or talk about, many Americans believe that the trafficking is only overseas. Women and children from overseas are bought to America for sex slavery. This book will educate and inform the reader of local children being sold for sex.
Mary Frances Bowley tells stories of children who have been involved in sex trafficking and the story of Wellspring Living, a safe place of hope, healing, and restoration for these children. Visit Wellspring Living site and you will want to buy this book to share with others. The umbrella represents standing with victims and white for purity that came through support and the Grace of God.
