In this episode Christie shares about the direct link between the narrative she received about her gender & the vulnerability that created for her to be groomed. There is so much to be gleaned from Christie’s story whether you’re a survivor, a religious leader, a parent or a woman who has questions about her safety. We are so grateful for Christie’s courage to share & her entirely unique way of seeing the world - we stand in solidarity with her call for us to make changes & honor her for the brave way she shows up in the world.
