The theme for our 2015 retreat is IDENTITY based on 1 Peter

—2 Peter 2:9

Annie is a survivor of more than a decade of sex trafficking as an exotic dancer and a high-class escort, but she is also a survivor of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, domestic violence, sexual abuse, cancer, drug addiction, abortions, miscarriages, pornography, anorexia, and bulimia.
