In our very first episode we get up-close and personal with CEO, Jen Thompson of Lighthouse for Life about her faith, joy, struggles, and hope. January is Human Trafficking Awareness month, and since Living Real Magazine supports this amazing non-profit/ministry, I elected to interview Jen to kick off our first season. If you would like to know more about the work of L4L or how to get involved, please go to

During our conversation, Jen references the following verse about joy (It's one of my favorites): 

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there if fullness of joy; at you right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16:11 ESV).

Our prayer for those listening is that you'll find real joy through a real faith in Jesus Christ. We also pray that you'll pray for L4L and all those involved, as well as those God will rescue from this horrific evil through L4L's obedience to Him.
