“Navi tells her powerful story of being birthed into a family filled with adversity. She reveals both unimaginable darkness and an inexplicable presence of Light. Sold in a web of unspeakable sexual abuse as a child, she was yet still able to sense her heavenly Father’s love and care. Navi supernaturally remains unjaded toward God, telling her true account of a young life of horrific circumstances.”– Tomi Grover, PhD, Human Trafficking Educator (regarding Becoming Navi)
“Commercial Sex is barbaric. A civil society cannot continue to allow it, stay silent about it or be apathetic. Traffickers are literally harvesting our future (our teens and young adults) and destroying it. Hello Navi shows how the process works. How the unthinkable happens in plain sight. I predict readers of Hello Navi will be moved to make their communities safer for victims and hostile to traffickers.”– Dottie Laster, Human Trafficking Expert (regarding Hello Navi)
“Hello Navi presents an incredible picture of God’s supernatural ability to heal and redeem lives! Nothing is too dark or graphic for our Father to redeem, and the reality of this novel demonstrates that God does just that: He takes the most broken and seemingly most unloved and transforms their lives by His blood and His love!
Jesus is the ultimate rescuer, and Hello Navi paints one of the most accurate modern-day realities of Him doing just that. This story will bring hope to so many people’s lives! From the trafficked victim to the hopeless and fatherless, this is a book of promise to anyone and everyone that needs Divine intervention in their lives.
It’s real! It’s raw! It’s graphic! And unfortunately, it’s the reality of the world we all live in. We can no longer turn a blind eye, nor be disengaged from the fight against darkness around us! This novel is one more tool in our belts to securing the victory Jesus has already won!”– David J. Bendett, Senior Pastor – Hello Navi)
