"Dear Mom and Dad, I'm in jail."

Those are the opening words of my award-winning memoir, From Tears to Triumph, My Journey to The House of Hope.

Travel with me through the moment when life wasn't worth living and venture with me into life in a radical religious commune.

Accompany me to a Mexican jail and wonder if you'll see the light of day.

Jump in a jeep and experience a road trip through Central America.

Walk with me as I meet the President of Costa Rica and his wife, Dona Karen.

Be next to me as we walk into the Red Light District of San Jose, Costa Rica and feel the pain of the underage prostitutes working in the sex trade to survive.

Be with me as a desperate man gives me his young, scared daughter.

Feel your heart smile as you experience the triumph that comes from finding purpose and giving love to
those who most need it.

JOIN ME ON MARCH 11TH AT 7:30 PM. Casa Luz, Boca del Rio #75. La Manzanilla. questions?
