Today is my birthday and the absolute last thing that I thought I would be doing right now is writing a blog but I had to say thank you.

I am literally in tears, choked up in tears, and even had to excuse myself to blow my nose. I must feel comfortable with my audience because that is nasty to share; not sexy indeed. Please forgive my poor blog manners.

I had no intention on coming to visit my blog today or going on Facebook for that matter. I am so glad that I did because you, my followers have given me a beautiful birthday and anniversary blogging gift-you! I woke up this morning feeling like I wanted to be able to be surprised for my birthday. I was hoping for the miraculous; a leading into the next year and on the eve of the NEW YEAR, I have 654 Followers and Subscribers!


I began blogging because my friend encouraged me to do so in order to promote my book Identity Crisis, Identity Christ Is: A Journey to Love. What has happened instead, is that I have found myself a place to share my passions and to promote The Power of Saying NO! (one of the Ten Ways to Safeguard your Child from Sexual Abuse)

In honor of your commitment to reading, commenting, reposting, and following my work, I am giving away three copies of my memoir entitled, Identity Crisis, Identity Christ Is: A Journey to Love to the first three people who read and comment on a blog that empowers, and inspires them in some way! In this contest, generic comments may be published but will not deemed as eligible. I am looking for the first three people to give  a detailed comment explaining your thoughts on any one of my blogs, and how you have been impacted by the information and stories.

The way it works is, when people leave me a comment, I receive notification so it is simple. The first three comment notifications will be privately emailed to congratulate them on winning a free book. I will ask for an address to send your signed copy of my book also found at:

I am filled with great joy today. And, I wanted to take a moment to say Thank You!

2012 Changes

I have decided to become a full-time Speaker and Advocate for the Starvation of Predators and the Healing and Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse. I speak passionately about the plight of homelessness. I have created a hash tag you may have noticed #starvepredators and #tenways

I enjoy visiting high schools to speak with teenage girls about teen dating and healthy emotional relationships as a prevention and awareness of domestic and sexual violence.

I enjoy speaking to educators with various backgrounds in schools, conferences and the like to talk about Ten Ways to Safeguard Your Child from Sexual Abuse, a list that I created and tailor to a variety of audiences in corporate, government, church ministry and educational settings.

Additionally, in 2012 I am taking the biggest most amazing leap of my life. I am driving across country to talk to the media, uplift communities, and to talk about families separated by homelessness; foster care and how both groups are put at risk for child sexual abuse.

My partner and I are going to homeless and safe house shelters to empower performance, provide resources, and infuse healing among those who are also afflicted with narcotic and/or substance abuse. An alarming eighty percent of narcotic and substance addicts have been sexually abuse as a child.

Our goal is to leave at the end of February. We are working on sponsorship as we speak. I want to encourage you to stay along for our journey!

Scroll back up to read contest rules again!

I am excited to give away three copies of my book today to say THANK YOU! I was looking for a sign leaving 2011 to confirm that I should go on the cross-country mission anything at all to say that the topics I speak on are important. Just in the nick-of-time I see this!

I am also very happy that I am member of the National Coalition for the Homeless and Rape Incest National Network’s respective Speaker’s Bureaus. It is a labor of love to which I am please to be appointed. I look forward to all engagements within these organizations and the others that I intend to fulfill.

Have an amazing NEW YEAR’S EVE, and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

BE. Extraordinary,

Ressurrection Graves
