Shine by Lisa Griffiths

Don’t let the voices of the past rob you of your future.

What “they” said against you was from their own insecurity.

They don’t know you and what you’re capable of.

You might not even realize what you’re capable of, but trust me …

You’ve been refined in the fire.

You’re going to shine and do incredible things!


Lisa wrote this poem for the kids accessing our Writing For the Soul Workshop™ program to encourage them. Not only is she an avid supporter of our writing program, Lisa is one of 17 survivors of child abuse and child trafficking published in Removing Chains of Child Abuse. The book was made possible through a global community partnership with Ark of Hope for Children. Take a look at what one customer said after reading the book:

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
“The collective voices of this anthology rise up as a rightful specter over the insidious realities of child abuse in all its forms. Thank you to its authors for finding the courage to speak to child abuse’s immediate and long-lasting effects. Whether you are a similar victim – or not – the take-away from this worthy effort is one of great emotion and necessary education. Only through the later, can we cause change. A must read…”

Removing Chains of Child Abuse

The short stories, art and poetry collected in Removing Chains Child of Abuse are from survivors of human trafficking, child abuse and bullying.

This project was made possible through our Community Partnership with Ark of Hope for Children. Ark of Hope is a human rights umbrella organization using a trauma informed approach to serve survivors through various programs. This includes our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ program.

These powerful stories allowed those who submitted them to experience writing and art as therapy. They give hope to the survivors reading them that they are not alone and they too can recover. This book is packed with resources  for those still suffering, as well as signs to look for if someone suspects that a child is being abused. Book includes a journal at the back. Proceeds from book sales benefit Ark of Hope for Children.
