Hi, I’m Jessa Crisp. I’m a passionate communicator and human rights activist living in Colorado.
I had just escaped from being trafficked and was attending my first college class when I heard Eleanor Roosevelt’s famous quote for the first time. “Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility.” These small sentences wrecked me as I realized for the first time that my freedom was not given to me to be kept in isolation, rather it is a gift I can present to others.
Over the past decade as I have engaged in my healing process, God has called me to advocate for hope around the globe. Hope for churches, communities, families, and individuals whose stories reflect disappointment, relational struggles, devastating loss, excruciating pain, and unjust experiences.
Although my life is imperfectly messy, I believe that it takes us, a scarred community, to engage together in the hard conversations.
I would love you to join me on this journey of learning what it means to embrace hope—a movement of finding meaning for our stories.
